Health Issues: high cholesterol, snoring
Barry Parkes never really worked out and didn’t eat healthily. However, when he got to the point where he did weigh 325 lbs, he knew something had to change.
“That’s when it hit me,” he said. But he didn’t quite know where to start. One of his coworkers recommended getting a Fitbit. A device and app helped Parkes create a calorie budget, and he also started going on daily walks with his wife.
After about a year and a half, he lost 122 lbs. He said he now has more energy and doesn’t snore anymore. Plus, he and his wife have found they’re even more in love than before, he told the outlet.
“The key is you got to commit to it first. You’ve got to be at the point where enough is enough. You got to commit to doing it, and then you’ve got to stick with it and be consistent.”
