You really don’t notice that you’re putting on weight when you look at yourself in the mirror every day. One day, I saw a photo of myself and I was shocked! Here at the store, we’ve done weight-loss competitions internally for years. I weighed 290 pounds when I started, and, this time, I used ZP’s app as a great motivational tool. I’m hovering around 230 pounds now. I like to eat, but with my ZP Challenge I started being careful with my portion sizes. I don’t eat before 9:00 a.m. or after 7:00 p.m. I nd alternate, healthier snacks for my sweet tooth. Before ZP, I couldn’t run from the sofa to the refrigerator and now I do half-marathons. You have to learn how to make changes and give yourself time to adjust. You can’t run at things too fast. We all make thousands of decisions a day without even thinking about them. ZP’s app helps us think about those decisions and make better choices.
• I’ve lost 60 pounds, I feel great and I know that I’m more fun to be around.
• ZP is a great tool that keeps me in line.
• My next goal is to train for a full marathon.
• Making better choices every day is a part of my life now – I still don’t believe I won $5,000, but it’s awesome!
I’ve had many revelations about how poorly I’d been treating my body, how I spent money carelessly and how I was bringing those poor lifestyle choices back home to my family. I used to have to take a nap in my truck at lunchtime. I didn’t realize how tired I was all the time. Being healthy and having so much energy is really exciting. I’ve dedicated myself to spending more time with my family. We get outdoors and do things. I’m getting out to see all their activities. I exercise at home with my wife and sometimes I run with my daughter. With ZP, it all ties together. Giving up eating fast food ve or six times a week adds up. We’re saving around $600 a month, which is going into the kids’ college funds. I’m not as grumpy and my associates have told me it’s better to be around me now. I just didn’t realize how much of a difference, and in so many different ways, changing my lifestyle would make. ZP Challenge is a great tool that, along with a great support network, will help you make your life better. This is an awesome thing Walmart has done to give back to their associates and our communities.
