In June of 2009 we began our journey. Trey was in treatment for an autoimmune disease and had spent a year and a half on chemo and steroids trying to beat it. He knew that he was not in a healthy state and that the foods that he was putting in were not helping him create health, so he knew that is was time for a change. He really wanted to see what his body could do to heal itself if he were closer to a healthy BMI. Jenn was not ready for a change. She was very reluctant to start the program because of some of her concepts about what a “diet” should look like. And she had given up hope. Hope that she would be anything but a morbidly obese wife and mother. She agreed to start with Trey, on the same day, so that she would not be the reason that he failed.
Trey dropped 105 pounds and Jenn shed 187 pounds. After losing our weight our activity level sky rocketed. Trey started coaching our daughter’s soccer team, trained for a marathon (injury prevented participation), and has competed in the Wild Canyon Games three times. Jenn has ran 5K’s, 10K’s, a half marathon, obstacle races and participated twice in the Wild Canyon Games.
We now consider ourselves ‘half the couple’ we once were and are not looking back. Trey has maintained for over 3 years and Jenn has maintained for 2 years 11 months.
