Before I came here to FoodFit, I had
medical issues. I used to take over 13 pills in the morning for
breakfast. Being obese, my doctor finally said, “Look
it’s do or die,” and that was literal. I said I wanted to be there for my
grandkids. So I started off doing it for them and ended up being for me more than
anything. [Laughs] Between changing lifestyles diets, learning new things, nutrition, I
came off of all that stuff. Now a year and a half out,
I have greater energy. I can actually walk around and volunteer without a cane.
I learned tons. I’ve lost 130 pounds. I’ve started — live a whole different new lifestyle now. Good food has changed
my life in a very huge sense. I get a whole lot more hugs now in a week than I
have ever gotten in in years…years! Tons of hugs. I don’t call this place just a
building; I see it as hearth and home. Really, I do and everybody in it is family.
