Stephen’s Weight Loss Story!
Words from his wife (Jennifer): I just wanted to say that I was amazed at the change in him. When he decided that he wanted to lose weight I wasn’t sure how it was going to work for him, but he stuck to it and really did it for himself. His confidence changed and so did his spirit. He is a new man. Now he is wearing size 32 jeans. He continues to work out and eat right. Everyday brings new challenges for him. His battle with food isn’t over, but he is still winning. I am very proud of him for all he has accomplished. I hope that his story can inspire other visitors.
