I am a single Dad of 3 and I needed to make changes in my life! I am using Spark to aid me in the process!

At the beginning of my journey, back on May 5, 2012, I had 167 lbs. to lose! Now, 55 weeks later, I have lost 153.8 lbs. and have just 12.8 lbs. more to go.


I AM DOING THIS!

I AM BEING THE CHANGE!

I AM EMBRACING THE POSSIBILITIES!
