Corky’s Story: An Inspirational Journey to Losing 105 Pounds in a Year

At the age of 56, Corky Stanton was unhappy with his weight and its complications.

“I was 310 lbs. I was on 6 different medications. I would get up in the morning and I was sore everything,” he remembers. “I was getting arthritis throughout my body. I had a hard time even tying my shoes.”

The chronic pain and lack of mobility was tough for Corky, who had used to enjoy activities like backpacking.

“Is this the end of the road of my life?” he wondered.

He assumed that he would die young from a heart attack — and decided that he needed to take a drastic step to get back on the road to health.

He believed that the choice came down to surgery or a major lifestyle change. He chose the latter.

He discovered The Gabriel Method book online and became interested in visualization.

It’s a tool that proved to be incredibly helpful for Corky on his weight loss journey.

Through a regular visualization practice, Corky was able to shift his mindset around food, change the way that he ate, and develop a whole new self image.

Now, Corky enjoys a wide variety of foods — and continues to lose weight.

Corky lost 105 lbs in a year… and says he feels 20 years younger. He is also back to enjoying long backpacking trips!

We celebrate Corky’s inspiring mindset shift and ongoing success!
