For the longest time, my brother was a straight A student, a black belt in karate, and went to church every Sunday. Nobody would 've ever thought that this type of kid would 've turned out to be addicted to drugs. I remember a few years ago feeling hatred toward him for not getting better, but as the years went on, I realized that no one can help him if he did not want to help himself. As of today, he is doing better than ever and has come so far. He got the help he needed, and I could not be any more happy.

I had a BMI of 37 going into my freshman year of college and my physician warned me numerous times to change my lifestyle. I dismissed their warnings with youthful ignorance. However, there I was laboring away on that treadmill, with only one response to those thoughts begging me to quit, “This pain is nothing compared to how you felt that day.” My dad was never out of shape, but he also wasn’t as healthy as his physician asked him to be. That fact did nothing to stop the heart attack he suffered months before my freshman year at Iowa. There laid my dad, unconscious with tubes protruding
