"Lasting change comes from making a choice to put yourself and your health first. Every day you have to make a decision to choose the life that you want and you are the only one that can make that decision for yourself"

My name is Jason Cohen and I am a filmmaker/photographer based out of Lafayette, Louisiana. Several years ago I found myself looking down at the number 297 on my bathroom scale and was determined to never see that number go above 300. Since then I have lost 125lbs and this project is my way of trying to pass along some of that encouragement I received in my own journey. I have been fortunate enough to meet and document these incredible individuals and am honored to be able to share those stories with you.
