Get H3 Inspired: Douglas McGhee

Douglas M.About two and half years ago, weighing in at approximately 260 lbs., I was diagnosed with high blood pressure.  This was the wake up call that made me realize I needed to do something about my health before it was too late, and I was physically unable.  It was then that I decided to take a 6-month leave from business to focus solely on myself.  Not really knowing what to do, my first step was to research my options; this is when I came across Hilton Head Health (H3).  From what I read, H3 seemed like the perfect place to help “kick start” my journey to better health – and I was right. 


It was in January of 2008 that my wife and I came for two weeks each.  I came in with a high degree of trepidation, but that quickly disappeared when I arrived and met other guests attending the program.  The camaraderie among the staff and Guests alike was very evident, and something that I feel was a significant contributor in my continued motivation and success.  In just those 14-days, I lost 14 lbs. – which is something I hadn’t been able to do in close to 10 years.  And within five months of returning home, I had lost a total of 60 lbs.  It’s been over two years now, and I have still maintained that loss. 


I’m now at a point in my life where I’m happy with my personal fitness and overall health – so I’ve decided to do something bigger, something beyond myself.  At the beginning of this year, I lost a close friend to pancreatic cancer.  In his honor, fourteen others and I will participate in a charity fundraiser and climb Mr. Kilimanjaro.  I continue to live healthy and challenge myself.
