Eric Compton had been overweight since 1998. He had lost enough weight in 2003 to be allowed into the U.S. Navy. He was injured in 2007 during a routine maneuver event and had four surgeries between 2007 and 2009. As a Wounded Warrior, he was classified with 70 percent disability and used his lack of mobility as an excuse to being overweight. He knew his days of being in the military were over, and by May 2011 he was in desperate need of a complete lifestyle change. That is when a friend told him about the 24-Day Challenge.
He soon lost 47 pounds using AdvoCare products and also by approaching his health differently. He actually lost 175 pounds over the course of 2.5 years. He’s had a few setbacks, but continues to take AdvoCare products, gain muscle and maintain a healthy weight. Doctors told him that he would never run again and he would always have pain when walking, but running is now his favorite hobby and he has participated in several half marathons. He has overcome his trials and now strives to share the message of hope and healing with others.
One thing he eats now that he’s never eaten before is flaxseed, and he loves the fact that he can now play with his kids without getting winded or fatigued.
I hope this story has been inspiring to you. I know it has to me!
