Victory over weight problem; local couple sheds 260 pounds
And the new regime has had an impact at the college. In the
summer, when the students were gone, Matthew had a station where he was “cooking to order” and preparing food for the staff the way he would prepare it for Donna and himself. He said, “Students came back and that got pushed aside because they are 95% of my customer base. But we’re starting to push back on healthy food.”
But perhaps the most important change is better health and more energy for both Donna and Matthew. In an email about this story, Donna wrote, “Since December 23, 2011, Matthew and I have lost 192 (not a typo!) and 57 pounds, respectively. Matthew is on track to pass the 200-pound weight-loss mark in the next few weeks, in less than a year.”
On the day of the interview, Matthew had reached that goal. The couple plans to return to the spa in December.
