I thought that I was just one of those people that was meant to be big.
I've been overweight since I was a kid. I tried diets and different work out videos, but I never followed through with any of them, and any weight that I had lost I would regain right away. After getting married and having two kids, the scale started creeping up, so I just stopped weighing myself.
In January 2012, I was somewhere around 275-280 pounds. I was stagnant, depressed, and on three different types of anti-depressants and anxiety medication. After a horrible accident, I decided I wasn't going to live that way anymore, and I needed help. That's when I saw Arthur's video on Facebook and immediately started researching the DDP YOGA Fitness System. I bought the program that day. After about 6 months I'd lost 30 pounds. Then I had a surgery called the Vertical Gastric Sleeve that reduced the size of my stomach by about 80%. I continued doing the DDPYoga for the next year while eating very clean with the help of DDP YOGA, and working on my mental health.
Since then, I've lost a total of 140 pounds and I have more energy than I know what to do with. I am strong and happy. I've also been able to get off all medication and no longer suffer with depression or anxiety. I've never been happier and have now started coaching other people through weight loss and life style changes.
Thank you DDP for creating a program that literally ANYONE can succeed with, because I never thought I would be able to reach this "dream" of being physically fit and healthy.
