Sometimes a single moment can make all the difference. For Kevin, that moment came when he was climbing a flight of stairs with his son. At more than 200 pounds he had to stop and grasp the railing as he struggled to keep up. At that moment, feeling embarrassed and humiliated in front of his young son, he knew he had to make some changes.
Kevin H. is a former U.S. Army paratrooper whose head was in the clouds about his weight.
“I was in denial. As crazy as it sounds, I didn’t think 270 pounds was that big. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I was hungry. I never stopped to think about it.”
Kevin was soon brought down to earth. His cholesterol shot past 250, requiring medication. He also developed sleep apnea.
“I was so out of shape, I couldn’t even walk. My back hurt. I had to hold my breath to tie my shoe. I got so winded climbing a waterpark slide with my son, I didn’t want him to see me.”
The family doctor recommended HMR.
“I said, ‘You’re a former veteran. You’re used to taking orders, Just do what they tell you to do.’ But in the back of my mind, I thought if I lose 20 pounds, I’m done with the program.”
Instead, with Healthy Solutions®, Kevin lost 60 pounds in 16 weeks. Plus another 30 pounds in HMR’s maintenance program.
“It’s the best thing that ever happened to me. There’s structure. The food is great. You’re held accountable. And they’re educating you to make healthy choices. You know what to eat and what not to eat and you have a supportive environment.
“It’s not a diet. Diets don’t work. HMR is about learning. There’s no cutting corners and no gimmicks. It’s a lifestyle change.”
Kevin’s new lifestyle? Healthy foods, daily exercise, zero cholesterol meds and no sleep apnea.
“I got my life back. I’m more vibrant and my confidence is at an all-time high. I feel like I can take on the world.”
*Average results for the in-clinic Decision-Free® plan is 38 lbs. at 12 weeks.
HMR paid for Kevin’s travel and wardrobe for a photo shoot and compensated him with HMR products.
