I was diagnosed with a heel spur and Achilles tendonitis on August 6, 2007. My doctor prescribed physical therapy. On August 8, 2007 I met my physical therapist, a wonderful young lady named Kelly.
It all started with me asking a simple question..."Do you think if I lost some weight it would help my condition?"
At that time I weighed 355 pounds.
Kelly told me she would help.
She gave me many different things to do but the biggest thing she did for me was introduce me to "The Biggest Loser". I watched the first episode of season 4 and didn't like it. She said to give it one more chance because it would help me. I did and became hooked for life.
This show has helped me so much. In a little over a year I lost 160 pounds and am down to 195 pounds. I am 52 years old now and I owe my life to Kelly and "The Biggest Loser".
