Leduc County man loses over 100 pounds through TOPS
A Leduc County man was recently honored for his dedication and determination to battle obesity.
Gerald Hennig has lost over 100 pounds since April of 2017 after signing up for a non-profit group called Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS).
Hennig tells The One News what finally prompted him to finally start eating sensibly and losing weight.
"I saw the family doctor, and my cholesterol was out of control, had high blood pressure, was pre-diabetic, went to go see the surgeon, he threw me on the scale and he said you need surgery in your knee and at your present weight there's no way it will last so he said to lose 100 pounds and come back and see me" says Hennig.
Hennig was recently named the second place winner for the International group TOPS which has been helping people with obesity issues around the globe since 1948. (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
