I went into Integrity Training Systems originally because of Pure Plates looking to buy a gift certificate for a friends birthday. After talking with John Morris about their program, I became interested in what they do. I have tried several times in the past to lose weight and get fit on my own, I knew I needed help and direction. So in late Oct. 2015, signed up for their programs, both nutritional program with Debbie, and training with John. I started 100% committed on Monday, November 2nd, 2015.
I lived by the perimeters that Debbie set for me on my nutrition, and met with John weekly on weight/cardio training. I immediately saw results which caused my commitment level to just be more intense. A friend of mine had signed up to do the Rock’n Roll New Orleans Marathon, and I thought to myself, why not try to complete a full marathon even if I have to walk. Which I did just complete on Sunday, Feb. 28th, 2016.
My starting weight was right at 249 lbs., and the day before the marathon weighted 192 lbs., losing 57 lbs. in just under four months. I have not felt this good since my early twenties. With the nutritional program, or should I say life style change Debbie has introduced me to, I feel completely satisfied with my daily nutritional intake, never feeling hungry, and/or stuffed. I eat now not just for the taste, and satisfaction of food, but for the nutritional value, and to achieve a better, healthier life.
Also, the marathon is just the beginning of my 2016 goals. I have signed up for several Olympic distance triathlons, along with two 70.3 Ironman triathlons.
