  • Thank you so much! My husband weighs nearly 500 lbs and I am at about 300 lbs. We want so badly to have another child and be healthy for our child we already have. I was to be active and be able to actually do things everyday and not feel out of breath. I have never been more excited for anything in my entire life!

  • Way to go! I seriously cannot put into words how awesome that is and how proud you should be of yourselves!! My husband and I started a diet on january 3rd, 2011 and to day he has lost 44 lbs and I have lost 25lbs! We are very proud of what we've done, and the hard work pays off. Ya know people spend so much money on the fad diets and waste their time, when all it takes it genuine old fashioned hard work. People have asked me how I did it, and all I say is "healthy diet and excercise"! No catch, just the same way people have done it forever! Keep up the great work!!

  • My husband just got back from a 4 week stay at Duke University's weight loss program. He lost almost 30 pounds, and still has 100 to go, as do I. We are doing the Duke diet, and I am losing a little, but he has gained 2 pounds back, because he has to go to work every day instead of spending almost all day in the gym. I'm sure it will work if he just doesn't get discouraged.
