Donald made up his mind to change and lost nearly 60 pounds
Donald M. Gilner weighed 228 pounds.
Gilner had several medical problems, including an artificial heart valve and rheumatoid arthritis,
…and he knew the added weight was only increasing the likelihood of more medical issues.
“I basically made up my mind that I was going to change
…and I knew that it would require a total change in my lifestyle,” he says.
“Since 2002, I have worked out at the YMCA one of every three to four days,” he says.
His goal is to work out at the gym 10 days a month
…and work out at home 10 days a month.
On gym days, he runs a mile,
…followed by 22 to 25 repetitions on the machines.
He also does free weights
…and back and stretching exercises.
And at home he uses a stationary bicycle and Stairmaster.
Gilner weighs 172 pounds.
