I grew used to fat jokes, having to hold my breath to tie my shoes and feeling uncomfortable in small seats in theaters and stadiums. I expected people to avoid sitting next to me on airplanes. I resigned to the fact that I would probably not live a long life and that I would likely have health issues related to my weight for many years. Sadly and selfishlyJeff Tasker

I have struggles with my weight on and off though-out my life. I managed to lose 40 pounds in my early 20’s and 10 years later, woke up one day to discover it had all crept back somehow! I lost 10 pounds over 3 months counting PTS with Weight Watchers and then I started HLS. I lost 10 pounds during the class period and loved the personalized nutrition template because it makes it easy! It is easy to eat according to the profile. I just asked myself – did I already have my starch today? Starch is my down fall! ILoved the personalized nutrition template

Back in June of 2014 – I started out horrible over weigh, out of shape and on meds for diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and acid reflux. 3 weeks into the first time I took the class, I was off acid reflux med, and reducing my diabetes medicine. By the end of the first time, I was down from 4 pills of Metformin to only 1. My blood sugar has evened out and is so much lower and about 3 weeks after the class, my blood work showed my cholesterol is great and my blood pressure is great andI’m down a total of 52.4 lbs.
