After Trying Every Fad Diet Possible, William Finally Found "The One" And Lost 100lbs in 5 Months!

William Ade's story isn't all-too-different than many others in this day and age-

Due to his many years of obesity, his health issues began multiplying and worsening. From severe digestive issues that would leave him with frequent, agonizing abdominal pains to dangerously-high blood pressure, even to culminating with life-threatening obstructive Sleep Apnea and a pre-diabetic bloodwork panel. Fast-forward to Spring of 2021 he started to experience frequent chest pains which ended up being due to an upper gastrointestinal problem. Thankfully it wasn't his heart but still scared him, his wife and his entire family tremendously.

"All of my adult life I've been overweight. It's something that I've struggled with for a long time. I've tried all the fad diets and programs, wasting so much time and money without any serious results. Maybe I would lose 20-30 pounds over the course of several months, but I'd end up gaining 40-50 pounds back. I just gave up. When I would discuss my weight with people, they would always comment how I didn't look like I was that heavy. As a result, I lived in denial about my obesity. If figured if people thought that I looked okay that it must not be that bad. I would tell myself that I carried the weight well."

At the recommendation of his cardiologist who cleared him of any significant heart problems, there was a serious need for William to lose weight if he wanted to prevent future problems from developing. With his cholesterol starting to become an issue, he went back for a follow-up in January of 2022 and he had hit his heaviest weight ever- 307 pounds.

"Shortly after that I was introduced to Mitch Menaker and Changing Lives Health and Wellness. A few friends had success losing weight with the program. I decided to set up a consultation and see for myself what it was all about. After hearing all about the program and seeing profiles on some of their success stories, I confessed to Mitch that I thought the program sounded too good to be true. He reassured me that if I trust the process and do what is asked of me, I will succeed. A few days later I took the plunge and signed up for a 100 pound plan. I started my weight loss journey with my first coaching session on April 8, 2022, weighing in at 297.2 pounds. I didn't know what to expect, but at that point I knew I needed to do something for my health. It was hard. There were times that I wanted food, not because I was actually hungry, but because I saw other people eating things that I wanted. Mitch was able to help me understand why I felt like that and change my relationship with food. Within the first two weeks on the program the digestive issues that I have been battling for close to 20 years were gone. I was starting to feel more energetic and was experiencing less pain."

In June 2022, he saw his primary care physician. William had lost over 50 pounds by that point and his bloodwork had a marked improvement in every test. His doctor was thrilled with his progress. He was taken off one of the two blood pressure medications that he had been taking for about 15 years. He said he wanted to follow up with William again in 3 months, and at that time he would likely be taking him off the other medication.

On September 2, 2022, he stepped on the scale and saw those magic numbers, 197.2 pounds.

He hadn't seen that weight since high school over 23 years 5 months he was down over 100lbs

"Not only did I not think that I would be able to achieve that in such a short amount of time, I never thought I would succeed in losing that much weight ever. Without a doubt my support system at home was a major component to my success, but without the tools and guidance from Changing Lives Health and Wellness, I never would have made it. Now I'm looking forward to a longer, healthier life because I trusted in the process."
