I work for 24 Hour Fitness. We just launched a new advertising campaign - 12 million lives - telling the personal success stories of some of our members. When I first saw the commercials I realized how inspirational they could be for people. I hope they inspire you, or help you inspire a friend or family member.

Hi Chris,
My name is Mary.  I'm the moderator for the Wellsphere weight loss community.  Thanks for joining us.  I know the fight to lose weight and keep it off is a tough one.
If you're new to Wellsphere take a few minutes to explore the site.  There are tons of great articles on everything from sports to healthy eating to relaxation.  If you're looking for something specific the search feature is great.  For instance you can use it to find healthy barbeque tips, information on accupuncture and spinning classes along with hundreds of other things.
Feel free to post questions, comments and information.  This is truly an interactive community of people who want to live healthier lives.  We all work together to support one another.
I just wanted you to know that we're here to help you attain your goals.  If there is anything I can help with let me know.  And welcome to Wellsphere.

Chris Collins’ story begins on a rainy Christmas Eve night. His car struck another head on, and he was severely injured. The accident left him with a compromised ability to walk and body that just wouldn’t do the things it used to do. He says, “I gained almost 100 pounds over the next five years smoking, drinking, and dealing with depression over my injuries.” Finally, he reached bottom. He describes a moment of clarity while working late at night, drinking too much coffee, eating junk food, and asking himself, “Is this really how I want to live?” So he joined 24 Hour Fitness and decided to turn his life around. Now, despite persistent pain from some of his old injuries, he lifts weights and cycles nearly every day. Since starting, he has lost over 80 pounds, and is training for an Ironman triathlon. When asked where he’d be today if he hadn’t decided to get himself in shape, he simply says, “Probably dead.”
