When I decided that if it was going to be, than it was up to
me. I decided to lose the weight because as a wellness coach I
wanted to make sure that not only that I am providing my clients

health for them.

most challenging part about losing weight was seeing everyone
I had grown up with. They loved to call me "Fat Boy"
which was my former nickname. So when I first started losing weight,
it made it a little difficult because every time I would fail
in my attempt to stay consistent at it, those who knew me as "Fat
Boy" would accept my failure as being acceptable. After all,
I was "Fat Boy".

terms of my energy levels and mental alertness.

and I have done it by becoming a wellness coach which helps to
keep me focused and I also follow a good nutritional diet.
