Let’s show some love to Maleka and Eric Beal of BetterChoices. They’ve lost over 300 pounds collectively. I LOVE it when a couple loses the pounds together. We featured their story back in Sept 2013.

Here is an update: “This month marks 8 years since taking that first step to change our lives & make our health a priority. We remember it like it was yesterday. That first morning, getting up at 4:30am to exercise…it was ROUGH! But each day, it got better. The results became more & more obvious and by 10 months into the journey, we had each lost 100lbs!
Combined, we have lost over 300lbs. Often times, we asked how have we maintained our weight loss for all these years. It’s simple. The same things we did to lose the weight are the same things we do today to maintain the weight lose. It’s about consistently making BetterChoices.
At the end of the day, this journey is about creating a lifestyle – a healthier lifestyle. Your lifestyle is what will sustain you day in & day out. We are still very active, getting in some type of cardio & strength training activity 4-5 times a week.
Now as healthy lifestyle coaches, we are blessed to work with individuals and couples wanting to create a healthier lifestyle & improve their overall health and wellness.
