Sharing some heart warming notes!


Hi Jerome,
I saw your pic in the MEDI clinic magazine. Your story
really is inspiring. I know that I have missed a lot of important
moments due to being over weight. In my case it was different, because
I was there; however, my thoughts were so consumed with embarrassment
and guilt over my appearance that I missed out on the joy that those
special moments should have given me.
I truly admire you and your wife for working as a team to overcome
food addiction… I think I’ve come upon a plateau in my weight loss
journey (-54 lbs). This is where it’s always been difficult for me in
the past. Once I reach the 160’s my weight likes to hover, even as a
teenager, I don’t remember weighing less than 160lbs. I’m finally in a
size 12 which is considered average, but I know I’m capable of losing
more. I’m using you as inspiration to do even more exercise, trying
to push myself beyond what I think I can do, and challenge myself to
be surprised! Thanks a bunch for sharing your story… In this epidemic
of obesity.. it’s lovely to see someone be successful at gaining
control of their wants vs. needs. Thanks for friending me! xoxoxoxo

Jerome,

I was inspired by both if you! I wouldn’t say I’ve had a great
loss yet but today I’m down 28.4 lbs in 8 weeks! I talked to my
coworker Tracey about the success you and shawna had and she joined
and in turned signed her college age daughter in Texas up!
I started my 5k training program last week so I’m excited to see the
progress of running and entire race! In the past I could finish a 5k
by walking and now I know I will be able to run the whole thing!

When I saw you poster in the office, i thought yet right but
then i got a response from you on fb and after friending you and
seeing your pics I have gotten more motivated to lose 100 lbs ive lose
21.6 lbs so far..You inspire me every time i think this is too hard I
think of where you were and how you look today and I know i can do it
too.
Once again thank you so much..

Same person later on in the month
Jerome: I am so pumped . i have lost 58 lbs 48 of those were medi
weight loss. this past week was weird i lost 7lbs of fat no
calories..then i found out my thyroids are going ballistic ..it a game
of give and take. anyway i am messaging you because i want to know
what type of surgery you are having for the excess skin that one has
when losing weight.. i wouldn’t know where to begin i am just
exploring tight now and want to go in. can you help lead me in the
right direction? I admire you for reaching that goal….thanks

This is why I do what I do!  To see and be able to help others achieve goals…..spectacular! 🙂
