Losing weight and keeping it off is hard. Losing more than 85 pounds and keeping it off is even harder, but that’s exactly what the founder of Find Your Total Health, Rusty Osborne, did. After years of self-described overconsumption of food and alcohol, Rusty hit rock bottom (a few times!) and knew something needed to change.
The first thing he admits he needed to change was his overconsumption mindset. His identity was wrapped up in being a big dude who could out-eat and out-drink anyone else. Everyone knew him for that “skill” and so it was hard to let go of that part of his identity. Rusty’s also a musician and he couldn’t go on stage without downing a few whiskeys first to calm his nerves—all part of the vicious cycle of overconsumption that was making him obese and feel terrible.
