Sebastian Dupuis, 41.2lb’s in 30 Days
At 36 years old, I had many blessings to be grateful for... Two healthy daughters, a beautiful wife,amazing friends, a good career… but something was off. My weight had been slowly creeping up for years. I had put on over 60 pounds over 10 years. Vacation and family picture made me cringe. I knew something had to be done, but after short stints in the gym and failed tries at watching what I ate, I wasn’t seeing results and kept making excuses for why I wasn’t successful in this area. Reality is that I had no idea what to do. My wife and I had been talking about taking control of our health for some time, but it would never materialize. One day, I saw a picture of Kelan on Facebook and noticed some incredible weight loss. I didn’t know how he had lost it at the time, but remember wanting to ask HOW!!! After visiting with Marjie and Kelan in person, in August, and getting a better understanding of how they had lost the weight, my wife and I whole-heartedly signed up for the September session of 20/30... Trusting the “real life” evidence we saw first hand. Having tried so many other avenues for health and weight loss, and seeing minimal results, we were honestly sceptical of our ability to “stick to it”. I started the Program at 236 pounds and completed the first 30 Days of the program with a total of 36 pounds lost… Never stepping into the gym once… Eating food from the grocery store. It hasn’t been easy to avoid all the things that brought me to the point of change…but it has been very easy to follow this new lifestyle and way of fuelling my body and life. With the help of my coaches, I was able to pinpoint which food did or simply dint work with my body. At Day 41 I have now lost 41.2 pounds, my knee and shoulder pain has disappeared, no headaches, more energy, better attitude, more positive relationships with my family and regained pride in my physical appearance. Not done yet…looking forward to keeping this healthy, realistic and maintainable relationship with food and myself. ---------

20/30 has changed my life. Once upon a time I considered myself to be in good shape and at a good weight. Those days faded far away over the past 8 years. I knew it wasn’t right to get used to seeing my weight in the 180s,but I just settled because anything else my husband and I tried would show slow, minimal results. I would get discouraged and stop. We had a whole lot of talk about “getting healthy” again, but not a whole lot of consistent action to make the changes. After we saw Marjie and Kelan’s results we knew what we needed to do. It was so inspirational to have people we knew as examples of change, not just some semi-celebrity endorsing a program! If I’m being honest I was sceptical of my own success starting out, based on how other attempts had failed with other avenues. Let me tell you…it is so easy to follow and the immediate results are so motivating. You don’t want to quit, you want more!! The support and guidance provided by the coaching is key. It keeps me accountable! And it is freaking amazing to check in with my wins, because they are genuinely pumped for me. Along with the weight loss there have been so many other wins…way more energy, better attitude, more patience, mental clarity, better sleep, self-confidence, I am a better me, for me, and for my family. Now for the numbers…I started September.2 at 183.2 pounds and am now at 161.2. My original goal is to hit 155, but after how easy it has been to follow and stick to I think I will shoot higher (meaning lower! Hehe). My advice to anyone thinking about starting this life-changing journey…DO IT! You will love it and yourself.
Marjie Richardson, 30lb’s and keeping it off.
“I had no interest in doing the program – but truthfully at the time, I didn’t have an interest in much. I was dealing with postpartum and depression, the tension was high at the house, and I had no idea what direction was up.
Kelan decided he was doing the program at Davies & Dunham Wellness so I tagged along.
I didn’t do it to lose weight, I didn’t think I had a problem – I just recently saw this picture of me taken five weeks before we started last November, and I honestly didn’t see myself that way.
I didn’t see my depression, and anxiety(which looking back I had for years) I blamed pregnancy for the poor skin, laziness, the list goes on. Beyond the difference I physically look in these pictures, I see a totally different person, I present myself differently and have more confidence in my choices and knowledge. It’s given me the courage to take the leap, start my own company, start consulting, and best of all bring the first 20/30 program to Ontario.
🍳I hate the term program - but the first 📅 30 days was just that - now it’s nothing more then my every day. “
