A few days ago we got an email from AA that was so inspiring we wanted to share it with all of you. Thanks AA for allowing us to publish:
I can’t thank you enough for this application. It is by far the most used application I have on my smartphone and one that has helped me make life changes like no other app or person have ever been able to do.
Last April, I downloaded your app to help me go on a diet. It finally dawned on me that I was making health choices in my life that were very dangerous.
I am a male, 5′ 5″ tall, and weighed 212 pounds. I was on 5 medications daily - 3 for high blood pressure, 1 for acid reflex and 1 for cholesterol. I would run out of breath if I walked for 10 min. I had been on a daily medication for almost 20 years. I had tried numerous diets and different exercise routines and was never able to follow through with them.
Fooducate made me realize not only that I was overeating but also how my food choices were never the best. I am on a new diet that has cut my food consumption, but am also running 2-3 miles a day and going on 1-2 hikes a week. I have realized that I really enjoy hiking and am planning on going to Zion National Park for a 4 day hiking trip. Something that would have never crossed my mind even 6 months ago.
Today I am 170 pounds. Two weeks ago my personal physician was surprised how healthy I looked. After some tests and blood work, he removed all my medication. I have been medication free for the first time in 19+ years.
I still have 15 pounds to lose to get to my “ideal” weight but plan on using Fooducate forever.
Thank you. I will continue to be your biggest ambassador.
WOW – way to go AA. Stories like yours are the reason we go to work every morning!
