What Happened? 

In 2010 Les weighed 510 lbs. He was having difficulty breathing, and when he couldn’t take 6 steps without being out of breath, he went to the hospital.

He had 6 blood clots and needed emergency surgery immediately.  His options were given to him and he ended up having surgery while he was awake.

He had a clean bill of health when the Cardiologist told him there was no damage, and his nephew was happy to celebrate with him. You can listen to the audio interview on the Podcast: Here

Religious Beliefs

Les grew up attending a Christian school.  He found organized religion turned him off a little bit towards attending religiously so to speak. When he walked out of the hospital with a clean bill of health he thanked God.


He started walking little by little with his nephews’ support. He felt uneasy until he had seen the doctor and took it easy. Once he was given the clean bill of health, he increased the distance and put in a lot of effort.

He continued to up the goals, and try and achieve them to make himself feel good. Now he focuses on strength training.

His most recent yearly check-up the doctor could not find anything he needs to work on!!!! He has lost 300+ lbs.

He began public speaking and motivation others by sharing his story.
