Meet Gummy Bear*.
|The Bear likes to rock out.|
I've been friends with Gummy Bear for a few years now.
The Bear used to be diabetic and on two types of diabetes medications.
He used to weigh over 280 lbs.
But in the last year he started to wonder about how his obesity was affecting his life.
He was worrying about how obesity would one day affect his independence.
"I want to be able to see when I'm old and not have vision issues due to my diabetes," he told me.
"I want to be able to be independent and walk when I'm old." he said.
He was worried.
Gummy Bear changed his ways.
For about three to four months now he's been doing Insanity. The food plan and the workouts.
He's been using his food scale.
He's been doing portion control.
He's been avoiding drinking beer...one of his faves.
Take a look at the Bear now.
Well done Gummy Bear!
And just in case you were wondering...what do two former fatties do when they get together? They eat fro yo!
