Dave McKew has been with us for a year now, and after losing an awe inspiring 113 pounds it is time for him to spread his wings and fly. Dave will be continuing to work out at 24 Hour Fitness near his home and staying on the path of his new fitness lifestyle. It has been fun to watch Dave continue to shrink and get into his new beloved skinny jeans while he seemed to become more comfortable working out and enjoying his weight loss journey.

“I’d been waiting for my most recent belt (my fourth since March) to indicate when it was time to get some new jeans.  This was the week where the belt was officially too big, so on Saturday I went to Macy’s and bought some new jeans.  This was monumental because it was literally the first time I’d bought a pair of jeans in a regular store (not big-n-tall store or big-n-tall department) in over 20 years.”

Though Dave said it was not always easy for him and sometimes he felt like “I just want this to be over” he found the strength within himself to strive forward, and with amazing results.

So here’s to you Dave! One year later and 103 pounds down! Though you will be continuing on your own we will always be here for support and help. Congratulations Dave and keep up the amazing work! Dave will continue to write for our blog quarterly so we can all still keep up with him.
