Les’s story was so impactfull, I had a hard time speaking through out some of it. He has an amazing story about loosing over 300 lbs and has kept it off since. He speaks about it and impacts others lifes. With out further ado, lets get right to it. After,stay tuned and I will read a review and say a few words.
Les works in the food industry and takes time for his health every day as well as spends time with his family.
My podcasting friend Sam Lomelli introduced Les and I. He interviewed Les on his podcast, Tips Of The Scale. If you want to hear Les tell his amazing weight loss story you can listen by clicking the link below.

In 2010 Les weighted 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.
He believes in God. He went to 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.
Other people herd his story on Sam’s podcast and reached out to him. He began public speaking and motivation others by sharing his story.
