It all started 20 years ago….

I was heavily drinking and smoking everyday. One day, I had a terrible hangover. I would always go to God, but that day, he came to me. He asked, “Are you going to bring this plane in for landing, or am I going to have to?” From that day on, my life changed.

I did a self imposed rehab with 90 days of AA meetings. If I got a craving for alcohol, Little Debbie would pull me through. Once I got sober, I realized I had to quit smoking. I went from smoking 2-3 packs a day, to nothing.

Once smoking and alcohol were out of the picture, the last thing I wanted to change was my diet. I was about 70 pounds overweight, and tried everything from Atkins to Weight Watchers. I just couldn’t seem to keep the weight off. I started researching and trying new ways to lose weight, but also keep it off.

With my story, I hope to help anyone struggling with weight loss, drinking, and smoking.
