64-year-old Gretna man loses 243 pounds

I am an Irishman and I love celebrating with friends and family. That’s how my weight climbed to 453 lbs. One day a good friend of mine came into my office and closed the door and started crying and told me, “You gotta do something.” So I did it.

Faith, family, fitness, friends, and fun. I had them messed up. I had the fun and friends before faith, family and the fitness sometimes. I reached out to Peggy at EveryBody Wellness Clinic. With her help, the scale read 198 lbs two years later.

I don’t look at it as a diet. I got to accept the fact it’s a change of lifestyle. I feel like there’s nothing in the world I can’t do.
