Too long a story. I was hit by a car once. Gained way too much weight. Kept gaining. Jan 6, 2009 I was 394 and began my weight loss journey. By Nov 7, 2009 I had lost 100lbs and by May 2010 I had lost 125 lbs. Unfortunately life took over. We bought a money-pit of a house and had another child. I am a stay at home Dad. The stress got to me and now on Jan 6, 2013 I am at my heaviest, 4lbs more then in 2009, now at 398lbs. Obviously I can do it. I have done it. And I am looking forward to getting it done once again. Thank you for all the support you have given me in the past and in the future as I know you will. Here I am Jan 6th 2014. Approximately 415. I don't know for sure because my scale only goes up to 400lbs. Got down to 346 during 2014 but back up to 407lbs by March 26, 2015. Need to put a stop the Yo-Yo stuff and lose the weight for good now.
