The young man was addicted to pills and alcohol – while at the same time eating 10 cheeseburgers and 2 large pizzas in one setting. Doctors warned he’d be dead within two years… so Bower finally decided to make a change.
Bower teamed up with Nick Murphy, a local personal trainer, who was up to the challenge of training a man unable to leave his own house. For 1oo days, Murphy traveled to Bower’s home to help him regain his mobility.
Bower lost 100lbs in those 100 days… but his journey had just begun.
His first battle over, Bower started driving to the gym every day.“My job 24 hours a day was to get healthy and save my life,”he said.
For 23 months Bower did just that… and one special day, he met Andrea.
On a weightless journey of her own, Andrea was immediately smitten.
“I was just really inspired by him and I thought he was super cute. We started talking at the gym and I hate to sound cliche but it was love at first sight.â€
Fast forward several years and Ronnie and Andrea are still together and trimmer than ever. Combined, they’ve lost nearly 600 pounds… but that’s not the best part of the story.
In an almost fairytale like turn of events, the couple recently wed in Syracuse, New York with friends, family and those that have helped them along their way.
This young couple is slim, trim and happy now… but it wasn’t always that way. It’s important to remember that they were the same wonderful people before the pounds came off, sometimes we have to see ourselves rightly before anything else can change.
