Daniel Shuman is 30, 5’10” tall, and currently weighs 184 pounds. In 2017, after the birth of his second child, he realized he needed to change his lifestyle for the future of his family. This is the story of his weight-loss journey. I was extremely excited to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, and to go on the rides. However, my excitement turned to shame, as I was kicked off the ride “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” because I could not fit in the seat safely. I began by eliminating processed foods and refined sugars from my diet. I immediately saw results. My wife, family, and friends could not have been more supportive. I feel incredible. I think it's important to not view my journey as complete, as this is something I need to remain vigilant about. It’s never too late to change your habits. The hardest part is starting.
