Meet Larry Myers, also known as “Mr. Jell-O Cup” and hear his story. He lost 700 lbs. and wants to inspire others! The Yonkers native, who once weighed 940 pounds and had a 98-inch waist, is now down to 276 and spreading a message of lifestyle and diet change as a motivational speaker.
In his own words, Millions didn’t make it, but I was one of the ones who did!
“My name is Larry Myers and I am here to inform you that you can make it! I’m passionate about sharing my story as people need to know it is possible to lose weight and become healthy, no matter where you are starting. Who would ever have believed that what I have done- losing 700 lbs.- is possible. Currently I am working on my final weight loss goal, which is losing my last 100 lbs.
I utilized food as a coping mechanism for everything. Over several years, food became my companion, my friend, my lover, and my way of life. I was a free man, but I was literally a prisoner in my own home.
I couldn’t sleep at night because I was scared I would close my eyes and never wake up again. When I did go to sleep, I would make sure I was sitting straight up with my back against the wall. Eventually, I realized that this was not the way I wanted to live my life.
He says he had always struggled with his weight growing up, but the tipping point occurred after the death of his mother Linda, in 2005. The week after she died, he lapsed into a coma at White Plains Hospital and woke up 12 days later.
My dreams of singing and traveling the world became obsolete. As tears streamed down my face, I found the strength and courage to pick up the phone and dial 911 and cry out for help.
At the time, Myers was so big that emergency personnel couldn’t fit him in an ambulance and had to transport him via pickup truck. People laughed, made jokes, took pictures and it was downright humiliating. There were even times when some of my family and friends jumped on the band wagon.
That humiliation of being stuffed in the back of a pickup truck was the wake-up call he needed to begin the fight to save his own life. “I had prepared to die,” says Myers. “It was war; I felt that I was at war with myself.”
A nurse at the hospital referred Myers to weight-loss guru Richard Simmons and the Brookhaven Rehab Center for gastric bypass surgery but ironically, he was turned down because he weighed too much to safely have the surgery.
Despite all of the trials and tribulations, I am so glad to stand before you and say I made it and you can too. I learned to let go and let GOD! Whether you are 100 or 900 pounds overweight or underweight, you can make a change!
I never in a million years imagined that I would be speaking to people about losing weight and getting healthy. I have lost over 700 pounds and each day my journey continues. No matter what your current situation is I am here to tell you, you can make it!
I have a DVD-Book that will be coming out soon entitled “Behind Closed Doors”. It will explain my struggle and give you hope and inspire you to make a change. It will also reveal secrets that held me bound and captive throughout my life. I do believe that releasing them, will set me free. I wanted to do this project because I wanted to be a resource to anyone who is struggling with obesity. (You’ll also learn why they call me Mr. Jell-O Cup’!)
In conclusion, you have the power to fight for your life. Death and Life are simply in the power of the tongue and today I encourage you to choose life. Millions didn’t make it, but you will be one of the ones who did!”
Everyone who hears of Larry’s story agree that he is an inspiration to thousands of people world-wide, perhaps even millions.
In many ways this isn’t the end, it is a new beginning. Larry has found a product and company to help him lose his final 100 lbs. The company is called TAVALA and the product he is using is called Tavala TRIM.
What is Tavala? Tavala is a company that came together with an Executive Team that has decades of experience in business and the direct sales industry. They believed there could be a better way to do business…a better and unique way to participate in a direct sales company today.
Tavala is the direct sales subscription box company who offers unique, life-transforming consumable products that are good for your body, both inside and out. A personalized subscription box where you choose the products, the price point, and how often you receive them. They created a user-friendly experience for both customers and members, who incidentally pay the same low price for products. They CARE and they encourage people to SHARE.
The Tavala TRIM is Larry’s key product to helping lose his final 100 lbs. and Larry has already lost 20 of his final 100 lbs. and did it in less than a months’ time. Once Larry reaches his final goal weight of 187 he will fulfill a life-long dream of bungee jumping!

Larry is an inspiration to our Team and to everyone who hears his inspirational success story. We can’t wait to follow him on his “Tavala Trim journey” where he will then have lost a total of 800 lbs.!
Surely TV cameras will be filming him while “Bungee Jumping” …which has been a life-long ‘bucket list’ goal. Something tells me that won’t be too long a journey since adding the Tavala Trim!
