There are times in our lives when something occurs that broadens our future vistas. The moment of engagement is one such occasion in our life. For many, it is a pivotal point in their lives since it draws a clear line between what came before and how things will alter in the future.
The changes that occur as a result of your engagement are designed to lead you to the altar. Many people decide what they need to alter about themselves during this time between engagement and the big day. Some people make the decision to lose weight. While it may not appear to be a huge issue, it meant the world to one man.
After his engagement, John Allaire found it difficult to make this transition. He had to work especially hard to lose 300 pounds in time for his wedding. Caila, his childhood lover, was so in love with him that she agreed to marry him despite his weight of 540 pounds.
John had no intention of taking Calia to the altar and dragging her into the struggle of obesity, even if she didn’t mind. He made the decision to lose weight so that she would not have to deal with his everyday struggles in the future.
The first thing John understood was that overeating was a stress reliever for him. Food served as a form of escape for him when his parents divorced when he was a child. At the age of 18, he was already morbidly obese. Things became even more intense when his father died that year.
He spent a few of years in Florida. A commercial scale from a fish house was the only scale that could weigh him.
He proposed to Calia, his childhood sweetheart. Yes, she said. She never asked him to lose weight. He understood, however, that his weight would now be an issue not only for him, but also for the woman he adored.
He was merely juicing and walking for the first few weeks. He shed roughly 20 pounds as a result of this. Because his future bride was in the Navy, he and his future wife had to relocate. He enrolled in the Camp Transformation Center, a comprehensive weight-loss boot camp, at their new San Francisco home. He shed 300 pounds in 15 months while there.
For him, the shift was long and arduous. Every day, he had to put in the effort to lose weight. He never lost sight of his goal, even when he took a break for a few days. The results are incredible: from his heaviest weight, John has shed 317 pounds.
