Welcome & Introduction

I am not sure how a local television interview gets attention from all over the world, but as I look at the little feedjit tool on the side of the blog I am humbled to see page views from India, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Australia, and many others from all over the world. My tiny little blog is suddenly getting a lot of attention. The last time I posted I only had 7 people following me, now Blogspot is telling me I have 26.

With so much new activity I wanted to take a moment to welcome everyone and introduce myself and my journey.

My story is not a complicated one I am an average 36 year old man with a beautiful wife and 2 gorgeous daughters. A little more than a year ago I embarked on a quest to change my life. I had gradually become an obese 300lb man who did not have a lot of energy and did not have a lot of drive.

I will not bore you with all the details at this time; most of them are available in some of my earlier blogs, I will just say this I wanted to change my life I wanted to lose weight but I did not want a quick fix or some fad diet. I want to lose weight, get fit and live healthy.

I know myself well enough to know I needed support and I also needed accountability that is why i began the Facebook group and that is why I began this blog.

Thanks to a lot of will power and a lot of support from my people on here and on Facebook I have now lost 103lbs with no gimmicks, no tricks, and no surgeries. I have achieved what I have through moving more and eating less.

I have discovered there are no easy buttons in weight loss. There is only hard work and determination but the results are so tangible and so rewarding!

I was was sedentary, now I strive to be as active as possible. I am completing the Insanity exercise program and I will be running my first 5k this weekend. This quest for me is not just about losing weight it is about being healthy and staying healthy

Welcome to the blog.  I try to post regular updates on here I hope you enjoy it.
