"There is no option."- A promise story
This month's featured promise story told the story of supporter Joel and his determination to change his life. Joel was born with a congenital heart condition that made exercise difficult ever since he was a child. He felt like he didn't have control of his life, so he would find comfort in something he could control: Eating.
Joel was 420lbs at the time this video was recorded. His food addiction had spiraled out of control, but he said it wasn't fair to his friends and family. He said "There is no option." If he wanted to be around to help people who needed him, the change must happen now.
Watch Joel's story to see the promise he made to his family and friends.
