Prior to the SHAPE Program, I was 281 pounds. My wife would have to tie my boots before I went to work. Going up stairs was a struggle. I would get up, go to work, come home and eat 4000 calories for my supper, go to bed praying I would die.  

Now I have a life. I can pay my bills and send my son to college. I am on the road a lot with my job, and even though I may not have the opportunity for fresh vegetables and fruit, every small town has canned vegetables available. I carry a can opener and vegetable steamer in a picnic basket with water in my trunk. Where there is a will there is a way.  

I have lost 100 lbs. and am healthier than I’ve been in years.
