Have you ever been stuck trying to figure out a good how to lose weight plan that will work just right for you? If so, you will enjoy reading about how a young man decided to take charge of his health and develop a plan that worked out best for him!
A few frightening health symptoms spurred a young man to completely turn around his unhealthy lifestyle. At age 24, Will Nevin was an out of shape, overweight law student whose whole lifestyle centered on food and being sedentary. He started noticing tingling in his feet and may have even experienced some serious heart problems. He kept quiet about his unnerving health symptoms, didn’t consult with a doctor, and started researching on the internet. What he found scared him into turning his life around before he ended up facing a future of debilitating chronic disease.
Instead of sitting on the couch watching TV and eating junk food, he started visiting his university’s gym. At first he was completely uncomfortable, didn’t quite know how to start exercising, and felt embarrassment at his overweight and out of shape condition. Will continued to persevere though! With research into healthy eating and exercise, he devised his own diet and exercise plan. Now, he regrets not getting help from a trainer or nutritionist. The fear and shame of being overweight and unhealthy makes it hard to ask for that help for some. While it is possible to do it on your own, it is so much easier if you have help and support.
At first it was fear that prompted Will to stick with his dieting and workouts. He was fully aware of the increased risk for not only diabetes and heart disease, but also other chronic conditions that frequently go hand-in-hand with obesity. It wasn’t long before friends and family noticed a change in him and a new motivation spurred him on. The pounds were dropping off, his energy level increased and now instead of barely being able to climb a flight of stairs, he could dart right up them. Keeping up motivation while making a life-changing switch in eating and exercise can be tough, but Will kept his focus and reaped some pretty amazing benefits.
His fears of being pre-diabetic and having a weakened heart soon started to recede as the pounds dropped off. When he finally went to the doctor, he had lost an amazing 175 pounds in only 11 months and his health was excellent. He is committed to maintaining his new healthy lifestyle and weight.
Will’s story is a real inspiration. It shows how commitment to healthy lifestyle not only brings dramatic weight loss; it delivers an abundance of physical and emotional benefits.
