AN INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL EDWARD BELUCCI FOR THE MY JOURNEY STORY SERIES.
Michael was one of our 2016 My Journey Winners!
LAC: When did you decide to start making your health a priority (what or whom inspired this decision) and what were your goals?
Michael: It was 2008 and the scale I had went up to 330 lbs. I worked with one of my best friends Rusty Jameson and he invited me to go to the LAC after work. I was about 350 pounds at my biggest but day one at LAC I was 338 lbs. My goals were to just drop weight.
LAC: How did you get started and what did you do to improve your health?
Michael: I started walking on the treadmill, and the elliptical followed by minor weight lifting. I had lived such an unhealthy life that the weight melted off.
LAC: How did you stay motivated and what was the biggest challenge?
Michael: I quit drinking alcohol and soft drinks. I stayed motivated by the results I was seeing.
LAC: What positive changes did you see in your life and what did you learn throughout this process?
Michael: I learned that I am more resilient than I thought. The best shape I got to was about 225 lbs and started to get toned. In 2013 I got custody of my one year old nephew and have gained about 25-30 lbs back. But just started again. I love the LAC staff and facilities.
LAC: Final Thoughts? Is there anything else you would like share about your story?
Michael: Continue smiling and being encouraging to all people that walk in the door. God has your back so you can take steps forward!
