No one ever said it was going to be easy. It would take discipline, be stressful to adhere to, and might take months or longer to see any results. But, I was 250 lbs. and going nowhere but up. Living in the Midwest, especially in Ohio, its easier to ignore that you need to lose weight. There’s not much peer pressure. Most of the population was just like me and there were very few people here trying to impress anyone.
