Meet Cande Garcia!

Cande with his sister Grace!
My name is Candelario Garcia, I live in Los Angeles, and am 26 years old. My mom is from San Antonio, Texas while my dad is from Guadalajara, Mexico!  I have one brother and one sister, and most of us live here in Los Angeles.  I am a field supervisor for a cable company and know that I would be more effective if I could lose weight.  Recently I have decided to change my life and  I am on a journey to weight loss, determined to make a healthy lifestyle my priority.

I started gaining weight at 12 years old and have continued putting on weight over the years.  I would eat anything from pork, bacon, fried chicken, pizza, 6 to 12 cokes a day and alot of fast food.  I have always been so full of fear and cannot accomplish things as effectively as I would like to because of my weight.  I fear losing my job, I'm insecure because I look overweight, and my biggest fear is not being successful and ending up all alone.  I cannot continue on this path to destruction. 

Doing any form of exercise for me is like pulling teeth...it is very painful, exhausting and discouraging.  I know in time it will get easier, but for now, it is really hard for me!  I am really tired of being sluggish, tired and not sleeping well at night.  Not to mention, I have terrible heart burn from the food that I have allowed myself to eat. 

I initially reached out to Zac Woodfin to discuss my fears with him and after talking with him one on one, I realized he was the right person to help me.  I opened up to him and told him about my life and how miserable I have been. At that moment, he told me that he and his wife, Fawn Woodfin, are taking people through weight loss journeys and he offered to help me.  I knew that it was right, so here I am.  I am looking to live a healthier lifestyle, to have a better outlook on life, and to be a better, healthier Cande!

My message to anyone reading this, is that they are not alone in this struggle.  If I can do it, they can do it too!
