Every weight loss story looks different. For some, it takes a scary diagnosis from a doctor to motivate change; for others, it takes prompting from a friend or family member; still others describe just having a day where they look in the mirror and know they’re ready to step up.
For William Guinn Jr., his weight loss journey started with a dream.
The father of four from Texas, has always dreamed of joining the U.S. Army, but at 460 lbs last year, he was well over the weight limit.
So William hit the gym.
William started working out 6 days a week, sometimes for hours. With the help of a nutritionist, he began to see a change.
After 14 months of blood sweat and tears, William had transformed!
In just over a year, he managed to shed 230lbs… that’s half his body weight!
Not only is William now leading a much healthier life, but now his dream has finally come true. On Thursday, William was officially sworn in to the Army in a ceremony in Dallas.
