changed his life
& gained back his self-esteem
My reason for losing weight, in the beginning, was simple, but it grew more complex as the weight began to come off.
I was almost 275 pounds, and my blood pressure (unregulated by incredibly high doses of medications) was constantly in the heart attack risk range (185/114 on average). I heard what sounded like the ocean in a seashell all the time, but it wasn’t magical or mysterious sea-sounds I was hearing, it was my blood pressure, and it even impacted my ability to fall asleep. I’d been to doctors who had given me medications to regulate the, but had done next to nothing to combat the cause. My weight wasn’t going down-quite the opposite in fact- because any form of exercise was virtually impossible. My BP would spike dangerously during brief walks, which put anything as strenuous as the treadmill or elliptical completely out of reach.
When I finally went to Red Mountain, I was desperate for a real solution, not just band-aids and sympathetic looks.
I’d seen all of the snake-oil advertisements on tv and the internet, and the real thing can look the same once one has become jaded. But I was pleasantly surprised as the weight began to drop almost overnight after starting at Red Mountain. I won’t lie, this has taken focus and dedication on my behalf, but I think those components have also been a part of the reward – seeing what I was personally capable of once I’d found a worthy partner in my battle against the bulge and an untimely demise. I know one thing for certain, I couldn’t have done this without Red Mountain and RM3. I know this because I’d tried before.
I have a wife and two kids whom I adore, and can’t imagine leaving sooner than I have to. If I’m going to be completely honest, I never thought I’d look at myself in the mirror again and like who I saw. I’d gotten so down on myself, that my self-talk was almost as damaging as the weight itself. I now like who I see these days. I see a man who is capable, healthy, and ready for anything life has to throw his way.
My experience with Red Mountain has been nothing short of life-changing. My wife is a frugal, card-carrying sceptic, and was a harder sell than I was, though after watching my weight go down and self-esteem go up, she’s a Red Mountain believer now as well.
