My story: December 2011 my wife and I had our first child. I did’nt grow with my wife during her pregnancy, I was doing a good job of it on my own a couple years prior. When I got on the fire department 11 years ago I was a very healthy 215 lbs. Strong and had energy, but with all the good firehouse food and slacking off in my workouts, I started packing on the pounds. In earlly June of 2012 on a house fire I started having some health issues that really scared me. My blood pressure was constantly running high, my gall bladder was going bad, and I was having chest pains. This shouldn’t have been happening to me at 37 years old. In July I started P90X and Shakeology in a challenge group. My starting weight was 260 lbs. After 1 round of P90X and a round of Les Mills Combat I am proud to say I am weighing in at 195 lbs. I have my health back, my gall bladder issues have gone away thanks to Shakeology and clean eating. My goal is 185 lbs then to strengthen back up to around 200 lbs with Body Beast. I thank Beachbody, Shakeology, my wife, ¬†Erin Beckham, and a bunch of other folks for pushing me and believing in me.
