How long he’s kept it off: Four months. He started in September 2008 and met his goal this past January.
Personal life: “I’m a warehouse manager, living in Powder Springs with my wife, Colleen, and our boxer, Jake, and English bulldog, Bella.
Turning point: “I have been overweight the majority of my life and have tried every diet on the market,” Bellso said. “It took 25 years for me to realize that a diet doesn’t work; I needed to make a lifestyle change. I knew I needed to go back to Weight Watchers — yes, I am a frequent flyer — and make a way of life change. When I started, I weighed 325 pounds, my knees were hurting. I had just started to not feel good anymore and I had become pretty inactive.”
Diet plan: Breakfast is black coffee, three slices of turkey bacon, three egg whites and an English muffin. Lunch is a roasted turkey sandwich. Afternoon snacks include popcorn and vegetables. Dinner is often a buffalo blue chicken burger with a salad. “The program does take work and it may be a bit easier because my wife and I have supported each other along the way,” he said. “We shop, cook, weigh and put together our brown bag lunches for work.”
Exercise routine: “I’ve joined a gym and go to work out four to five days a week,” he said.
Biggest challenge: “The biggest challenge was just to start, to put my mind to it and complete the first day,” he said. “Now that I have met my goal, a bigger challenge awaits me to maintain my weight loss. This will be more challenging than the actual loss.”
How life has changed: “My life has changed in many ways,” he said. “I feel 15 years younger and am more active. I have more confidence in myself and am more self-assured. Bored hungry is no longer an activity for me. I understand what hungry is and I eat until satisfied.”
