Eric Herrington

Eric Herrington was tired of setting the same New Year’s resolution each year. Eric tried sensible diets, fad diets, and sometimes went to extremes in his quest to achieve a healthy weight, but he always seemed to always come up short.  That all changed when a co-worker asked him if he wanted to go on a cruise in January of 2016.  Now Eric had a target and some serious motivation.  So he started to make changes.  He decided to stop relying on fast food for his lunch and opted to start packing his own.  A calorie tracking app on his phone helped him keep accountable.  Plus, he aimed to exercise for 150 minutes per week.  And he did this while maintaining a full load in nursing school! These changes quickly started to make a difference.  Today Eric weighs about 10 pounds less than he did in middle school and is working towards his ultimate goal of 185 - and he's ready to set sail on that cruise in January!
