Life's better now that Meriden man has taken a load off
By Kimberly Primicerio, Record-Journal| MERIDEN — When Bill Langevin drove his granddaughter to school, his stomach used to touch his car’s steering wheel. Nineteen months later, the Meriden resident has gone from a size 2X to a medium. He lost 101 pounds by changing his lifestyle. Langevin, 72, cut down on his consumption of carbohydrates, ate smaller portions of food throughout the day and exercised regularly. He no longer has to take his type 2 diabetes medicines, and most of his other maintenance medications, including cholesterol pills, have been reduced.
