It's crazy what a difference losing weight can make in your life. I am a 45-year-old husband, father of 2 girls, and I really couldn't do much with my family before this challenge. But now...it's on!

Whatever my girls want to do, we can do it! Swimming, hiking, wrestling, playing at the park, I've got energy for it all!

I've struggled with my weight off and on for most of my life. I had done the 90-Day Challenge before, but I just saw it as a contest. Once it was over, I went back to old habits.

After the last challenge I thought I had learned and was ready to make that life change, but then my wife lost her job, and I had to put my Life Time membership on a freeze. We could not afford the full monthly fee. With me having to put in overtime at work to keep up with the bills, I had no time to work out. As the weight came back, my energy went away and my family could tell.

As this 90-Day Challenge came closer, Angie the Nutritionist asked me if I was going to enter the challenge. Up until that point, I was not sure if I would or not. However, hearing her say those words I felt as if she could see that I had gained all my weight back. I felt like a failure and had to enter now.

It wasn't until this time, this challenge, when I decided to fully commit to this with my wife (who also entered) and kids on board that it finally worked, and I think it will stick! We cut out the junk and are supporting each other towards success in every way! The sky's the limit, and we're so excited to be doing this thing together. (Sort of reignited the spark!)

We're going to keep going, working with Angie the Nutritionist and putting in work so we can just be healthy and live as long as we can for each other and our kids! We are a true success story, regardless of the outcome of the contest. Thanks Life Time Fitness! We'll see you in August for the next challenge....
