Joe Bernstein lives in Washington, DC and has lost 160lbs in the last 10 years. One of the things that stuck out to me in our conversation that Joe said was this, "I remember being an adolescent thinking i’ll always be obese probably will never have success in dating or relationship, probably won’t get married… I used to joke about that I would probably die in my 40s."

Adam Sud is originally from Texas. He  was addicted to adderall and fast food, and since has lost 140lbs.
 
When I asked Adam about his rock bottom moment, he said this. “My addiction had gotten to a point where I existed primarily in my apartment. My life was about how do I get more drugs, if I don’t have it I’ll go get fast food and eat myself into a food coma and then sleep for however many days until I could get more drugs” Since then Adam has turned his life and health around and now works with others in recovery.

He has an incredible story and one thing that he said early in our interview about life before he began his journey was this... “Life before now… I was 465lbs, suffered from depression, i had sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high cholestorol, type two diabetes, i had long list of health ailments, and i wasn’t living much of a life. I was pretty much bedridden, walking up a flight of stairs was difficult, pretty much everything was difficult”

Naomi Teeter is a health and wellness coach from Spokane, Washington who has lost 150lbs and been able to keep the weight off for the last 7 years.

Her story is one of overcoming the odds and one things that Naomi said that stuck out to me was this “I can only think of 2-3 distant cousins that were average sized if that gives you any indication of the level of my family being overweight, obese, morbidly obese. It was pretty much just normal to me.

Naomi has redefined her version of normal and here is our conversation.

Anthony Salas from North Carolina who has lost 112lbs over the last 4 years!

Tim Kaufman is from Buffalo, NY and has lost over 200lbs, has overcome disease, and gotten off all of the medications he was previously on. At one point Tim was in so much pain that he had to wear a fentanyl pain patch witch is actually stronger than morphine just to get through the day.
 
One of my favorite quotes that Tim said from our interview was this: “We’re not supposed to be sick. We’re not supposed to be fat. We are supposed to have good lives. No one sets out to be immobile and overweight and unhealthy. I don’t think that’s anyone’s goal"
