|Cande with his sister Grace!|
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!
