Today is my Dad’s birthday. My Dad made a life change this year to lose some weight. He and my stepmom both started doing Thins In down in South Eastern Connecticut. They have been doing really well. My Dad has lost over 30-pounds. The diet is really strict and he eats a salad for lunch nearly every day.

I love and am proud of my dad no matter what his weight, but I’m really happy to have him losing weight for all the health benefits so that I can have him in my life for a long time. Basically, I want to get to spend many birthdays with my dad.

The best part is, he says he feels better. And really that is the most important reason to start any healthy lifestyle. But it has really been a life change with no days off.

Here’s to another year of health to my dad and everyone!
