One Million Lives

I think I am more excited about this post than I have been of any in quite awhile. To be honest (and maybe TMI), things have been a little rocky over here for the Powell Pack. We have let the busyness of life get in the way of so much?most importantly our relationship. And we both notice it. I came across this gem of a video from two years ago at the perfect time. It reminds me of all the amazingness my husband is. It reminds me of his vision, his passion, his love, his compassion, and his contagious attitude. It reminds me why I am so lucky to call him mine.

This video was a surprise from me to Chris at a party we threw in 2012. Little did Chris know, I had a tattoo artist there ready to help him cross off some of his Roman numerals. Watch the video to see what I am talking about?

To date, Chris has crossed off only through 100,000. While I personally feel he has made a much bigger impact than this, I must know in the comments below who feels Chris deserves to cross off the 1,000,000, signifying One Million Lives positively impacted. Chris refuses to cross of the million until he has proof?let?s prove it to him!

  1. First off, I just have to say how amazing you both are! The two of you have inspired me more than words can describe. I have struggled with my weight forever. I bought Chris’ book and started the turbo cycle in July after many crash diets. I started at 155 in July and hit 135 (the smallest I have been in my adult life) in December. For the first time in my life I didn’t gain weight during the holidays. My only regret is not starting sooner. After my son was born in June 2011, I was 241 lbs. I am now pregnant with our third child and I’m finally not afraid of food anymore. Whether it be through social media, your blog, or your amazing tv show, you have impacted so many of us! Thank you so very much! You two (and your gorgeous family) are beyond amazing! Keep up the amazing work!

  2. My husband and I watch the show and every season we are inspired to keep trying. Whether baby steps or grand leaps, each one has been because of the impact from the show. You can definitely count two more off! Chris and Heidi, Thank you for our constant inspiration and motivation! (I have completed 3 half marathons and working toward my first full!)

  3. Chris and Heidi, you made a difference in my life! I am currently on my weight loss journey. I am down 100 lbs and working on the last 80. I was inspired by your EWL program. Thank you for everything you do for us!

  4. You guys are way above and beyond 1 million! Between the tv show showing that everyone can do it eventhough you will face struggles along the way to the facebook pages having achievable daily goals like water intake to help keep someone on track! And diet bet helping create a community feel so no one feels alone in the struggle! Chris more than deserves to cross off 1 million!

  5. Chris… in the last two years I have gone from 296 pounds with no hope, to being a wellness coach and cardiac fitness instructor and kicking a 39 year pepsi addiction because you cared enough about a 600 pound man to teach him to do what he COULD do and the rest will come. I remember seeing you help that man stand up and sit down from the couch years ago because that is about all he could manage. That image lived in the back of my head until I was ready to change my life. It was my inspiration on the days my head got in my way. I can’t do everything yet but I CAN do SOMETHING. Thank you for your gift to the world and mark off that 1 Million… but add 10 million and maybe 100 million because you aren’t done yet!

  6. Even though I’ve never met u I feel u n Heidi have been there on the short time I’ve started the journey. You are both amazing people who dedicate their lives n time to others.I love u both very much n hope to one day meet u to thank you on person

  7. My husband and I live near Vancouver Canada and we watch the show faithfully. The things that both you and Chris do for other people is inspiring. It offers us hope and the inspiration to make changes in our own lives. I so appreciate your honesty and commitment to your family and to the world. Please count our family of 5 among those blessed by what you both are doing!

  8. Chris (and Heidi) have impacted my life and inspired me to get healthy again! I’ve lost weight before but regained it all plus. When I found the show and pages Chris and Heidi have inspired me everyday to try harder, do more and lose weight! You both have such a loving and kind way about you and huge hearts!!
