Turning Lives Around: Personalized Weight Management

Jack M. admits he was overwhelmed as his weight neared 300 pounds. He was suffering from sleep apnea and then he was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.

But, like a lot of people, Jack’s life was hectic. He didn’t see how he could fit in exercising and a lifestyle change. He and his wife have five children. He is a fifth-grade teacher, works part-time on weekends for a wedding company, coaches soccer and is a college and career leader in his local community.

Then came the day he realized he couldn’t do otherwise. “It was time to make a change,” says the 36-year-old. “I had to do something because I was really stressed and I didn’t feel good.”
