“The ‘ah-ha’ moment came when I went on a cruise. We were walking to the beach and I noticed that my walk to the beach took 4 times as long as theirs. I had to stop every place I could to catch my breath and rest. I knew I was having trouble when I was walking through the airport. I was struggling. But then I thought, you can’t be like this Gary. There’s nothing wrong with you. The only thing that’s wrong with you is that you don’t move and you eat too much.”
This realization prompted Gary to make a change. Through the weight loss program at Horizons, Gary has been able to learn about clean eating, how to make better choices in regards to food, and has lost 70 lbs.
