losing weight as a couple

Losing weight as a couple can be so much easier than going it alone. Here's how this husband and wife lost a combined 200 lbs!

In the beginning of 2019, Lee and Amy were living a very unhealthy lifestyle.

Lee weighed 300 lbs and stood 6 feet tall. Amy weighed 232 lbs.

The husband and wife duo were distracted with work and raising two children. Their health was pushed to the wayside.

“I woke up and I was 49 years old, weighing 300 lbs,” reflects Lee. “I was completely out of shape. I started neglecting my health back in 2009 when I broke my ankle and had surgery. Then I ruptured the L4 disc in my back.”

“I was on a downward spiral and I was frustrated. I used to be in the Army. I used to do 10-mile runs and 100-mile bike rides. So much had changed in the last decade.”

Keep reading to see how Lee and Amy joined forces and took losing weight as a couple to the next level!

Lee’s Tipping Point

Lee, like many Fit Fathers, received a health scare before joining the Fit Father Project.

“At my annual physical my doctor told me my blood pressure and cholesterol were up,” states Lee. “If I continued down this path, I would need medication very soon. On top of that, I needed to change my relationship with food. I needed to find myself again.”

The sad truth is thousands of men over 40 are taking prescription medications that only mask the deeper problem.

The good news: with the right program it is possible to be healthy and strong in the second half of life.

The Proven Program for Men 40+

“After the eye-opening report from my annual physical, I began researching weight loss programs for men over 40,” says Lee. “I knew that fad diets were worthless and that I needed a plan with a structure to see real results.”

“I came across the Fit Father Project online. Thousands of men over 40 had seen transformational results with Fit Father 30X. I purchased the proven weight loss program for men and convinced my wife to try Fit Mother 30X too!”

Fit Father 30X is designed exclusively for men in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond.

The online program includes delicious meal plans, time-efficient workouts (that don’t require a gym membership), daily accountability, and access to the private Members-Only group.

20 lbs Lost in the First Month

“In the first month of following the Fit Father 30X program I lost 20lbs,” smiles Lee. “I feel great and I’ve completely changed my relationship with food. This program is amazing. I have learned a tremendous amount of information on nutrition, supplements, and exercise. And the program includes different meal timing options and workout schedules, so I can select a path that will work for my busy schedule.”

“The Fit Father 30X program is the missing piece for working dads with careers, kids, and busy schedules. This program makes it easy to lose weight.”

“I upgraded to the lifetime access of the Fit Father Project because of the accountability, the structure, and the continuous support,” states Lee. “I’m part of a community of men on the same journey to be the best man, father, and husband possible. I am honored to be in the Fit Father Brotherhood.”

300 lbs to Marathon Runner

After a year and a half of following the Fit Father programs, Lee is now a healthy 188 lbs.

He is 50 years old and strong. Now he is running marathons.

NSV Running

Since collectively losing 200 lbs, Lee and Amy were given a special opportunity. The husband-wife duo was invited to run in the Fit Family Ragnar race.

Both Lee and Amy participated and ran side by side with Dr. A, the founder of the Fit Father Project and the Fit Mother Project.


Losing Weight As a Couple to Fit for Life

Lee and Amy have a new healthy lease on life.

“Now I know that being healthy is a lifestyle,” states Lee. “I am incredibly grateful for the Fit Father programs, the Fit Mother programs, and the Fit Family Support Team. Amy and I could not have done this on our own.”

“And for the men out there who are debating trying this program – I lost 110 lbs and completely regained my life at age 50. If I can do it, you can do it!”
