Gary’s Story (See Video)
Before Gary lost 228 pounds and found romance, his life was anything but a fairy tale.
"I wanted a wife and family and all those things," he says, "but at 421 pounds it was pretty unlikely. I was twenty-five and all I did was go to school, come home, go to work. If I wasn't working, I'd play video games."
Gary was reluctantly considering gastric bypass surgery when his physician mentioned the HMR program.
"The biggest surprise was how easy HMR was," Gary explains. "No decisions. Everything is laid out for you. You just follow the rules. And the food has so many options. It's good, it's quick and it works."
Gary loved the way HMR's support kept him on track, particularly during plateau weeks. He also praised HMR's medically-approved approach because it means "they do things the safe way."
"What keeps you going is the results. I would set small goals for myself. The first was to get under 400 pounds. After that, I'd go for 50 pound increments. It was just great."
Gary is now 193 pounds. He credits the healthy behaviors he learned through HMR. At the start of the program, Gary says he never would have guessed he could lose such a "huge amount of weight." But he did. And in the end?
"In the end, I got the girl. I got everything."
HMR’s published data for the type of program Gary participated in
shows 50–60 pounds average weight loss. Many people lose more weight.
