The Doctor Told Me My Blood Pressure was Dangerously High

In 1982 Mark's first son was born, between 1981 and 1982 he gained 82 lbs. They call that sympathy weight. He was a heavy smoker and drinker, but despite all that didn't see himself as unhealthy. His moment of realisation was when the doctor told him that his blood pressure was dangerously high. So Mark decided to quit smoking.

Mark's weight increased to 280 lbs once he quit smoking and he struggled to even walk down the driveway. Mark then discovered our meal replacement shakes, he would have one in the morning and one at lunch. Once Mark started losing the weight he found that he was smiling a lot more, his wife and kids could see it too. Mark lost a total of 140 lbs which left him at a healthy weight of 168 lbs.

How has your life changed?

Mark always wanted to go horse back riding with his family, but had never been able to. When he started losing weight he was finally able to take part in the activity with his family. In fact, Mark was able to do all the things they liked to do. And now his daughters tell him they are proud of their Dad.
