Jeffrey was feeling terrible about his health, and it started to affect his life with his family. He decided it was time to get healthy so he could be there as his daughter grew up. He committed to FOCUS T25, and lost 45 pounds in just one year! Read his story in his own words below:
The pinnacle of my health’s self-destruction was in December 2014. We were weighing my 5-year-old daughter at the time out of curiosity (she’s a tiny little thing), and my daughter asked me to step on the scale. When I did, I was shocked to see that I weighed 234 pounds. I knew without seeing that number that I was the unhealthiest I had ever been in my life, but I distinctly remember it really hitting me at that moment. I was on antibiotics on a very regular basis. I was experiencing extreme nausea, depression, and just felt generally terrible. I also drank multiple beers almost every night. In 2014, I spent thousands of dollars on health care to the point that I reached our family deductible limit all by myself.
Finally coming to the realization that I was killing myself, and that ultimately my daughter was going to have to see that, led me to change my life. When I decided to get my life back, FOCUS T25 quickly entered my brain. By the time I started, I felt like I was ready for the challenge – there was no stopping me. I felt amazing after both phases of the program. After Alpha, I felt like I was nailing the workouts, and I was really really looking forward to a new challenge. I think Gamma is where I started to really get stronger and put everything together. You still got a good dose of cardio, but I really liked adding in strength training. This may sound cliché, but I will be forever grateful for Shaun T and FOCUS T25 because it really was a point of focus for me that gave me a goal.
Today, I’m truly a changed person. I have not felt this good in about 15 years. I have tons of energy now. I no longer drag myself out of bed in the morning, and I don’t constantly feel like I want to sit down and rest. I feel like I have my life back. Most importantly, I’m a lot more active with my daughter now. I frequently take her on long bike rides where I run along beside her. We play outside and at the park all the time now, and I love it. I never used to have the energy for this, and for this, I’m truly grateful. For the first time in a long time, I’m proud of my health, and I’m never going back to the way I was.
