Travis’ Success Story

December 2, 2015


I began my weight loss journey at the beginning of January 2013. I was weighing in at 435 pounds and had a lot of health complications. My true light bulb moment was when my young children expressed to me that they thought I was going to die because of my weight and my health. That is when I decided to sign up for the seminar at Saint Francis Hospital. It has been a long and successful journey for me and I could not be happier. I have now lost an amazing 235 pounds and weigh in at 200 pounds. I now feel like I can accomplish anything. As I journey forward I take with me happiness and spiritual joy. The small things that normal weight people take for granted like walking, running, riding a bike and playing with your kids are no longer a challenge for me but rather hobbies. It is easy to do anything I need to do. I enjoy shopping for clothes and looking in the mirror. I will be the first to tell people that if I can do this, anyone can. Don’t sit at home trapped and feeling like there is no way out. It is time to enjoy life to the fullest, this is my testimony.
