“I wasn’t a good role model for my sons, I was just a lump on a couch. I needed to make a change and getting healthier was the only choice.”
Growing up, Travis developed most of his poor eating habits from his parents who were severely obese and died due to complications from their weight. Travis believes his addiction to food made him blind to the damage he was doing to his body. Doctors say he has a severe case of sleep apnea, which stops his breathing over 170 times throughout the night. He has also been diagnosed with pre-diabetes and high blood pressure. Married to his wife Laura for seven years, they have two young boys. If he doesn't lose weight soon, he will leave his wife widowed and his children fatherless, like his parents did to him.
