Check out this article from the Quincy Herald-Whig that tells us the story of a man, motivated by his children, who successfully lost 249 pounds.
His story is a realistic one. He had struggled with his weight for years and had tried multiple diets. Motivated by the birth of his second child, he began incorporating healthy lifestyle changes including regular exercise and healthy eating habits. His family made changes along with him to encourage and support his new regimen.
He is now living a happy, active lifestyle and serves as an inspiration to those around him.
