Lucaellyn Dean weighed 287 pounds.
“A few years back,
…my father passed away and I started gaining weight,” says Dean.
“I went to the doctor a few months after he passed.
I was already on blood pressure medication.
[The doctor] wanted to put me on cholesterol medicine and blood sugar medicine
…and I was already diagnosed with sleep apnea and I was sleeping with a CPAP machine.
“I think it has been that we’re there together, we’re doing it together;
…it’s a support system,” she says.
“I hope I’ve helped him as much as he’s helped me.
It makes a big difference to have someone else to lean on when you’re feeling weak.”
Lucaellyn Dean lost 94 pounds.
