Granpa is proud of himself

I am 58 years old, with two grownups who have given me 4 grandsons. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough energy to take part in games with them if a physical effort was required on my part. I was that boring grandpa.

I was a retired person who didn’t do much with his life other than sitting on the couch watching TV, playing games on his tablet, and eating. One day, I figured that I’d had enough and that I would not miss out on my retirement with my wife, children, and grandchildren anymore. Driven by self-guilt, I decided to take charge and that I would not live life on the sidelines anymore. It was time for action, and I had to get back in shape. Despite my resolve, I was a bit hesitant at first. I was afraid of commitment, but in the end I was able to overcome my fear and move forward. I have no regrets. It’s only been 7 weeks, and I have already lost 16 pounds. I now have enough energy to go out and play with my grandchildren. Grandpa is proud of himself.

Les Enformidables

LES ENFORMIDABLES, ce sont des gens qui un jour ont pris la décision de mettre leur santé en priorité et de se prendre en main. À travers leurs témoignages, ils nous racontent leurs histoires, leurs cheminements et leurs réussites. Ce sont des gens en forme. Ce qui les rend formidables, c’est qu’ils ont accompli une chose importante : sortir de la sédentarité. Mais le plus important, c’est que leurs exploits, petits ou grands, qu’ils sont fiers de partager avec nous, puissent nous inspirer pour que nous devenions à notre tour des êtres ENFORMIDABLES.
