Me, with my brothers-Tim, Kevin and Brian on my daughters wedding day; March 27,2010.





June 5, 2010 - Getting Closer! Now at 80 plus pounds off since the begining of Dec. 2009





That is me on December 5, 2009. I was 303 lbs., on blood pressure medication, and out of control. No joke...I was an "endangered species".



I have 11 pics in my gallery

Physician Heal Thy Self

I was a fat kid, slimmed down in my teens, hit the "college spread" like I invented it, then got it back on track in medical school. After 24 years of long hours, a stressful lifestyle and (most recently) a divorce after 28 years, I find that I am out of shape, obese, and I feel like crap. Enough is ENOUGH!!!! I tell my patients what they need to do every day......it is time to "walk the walk if you're gonna talk the talk".

Well done!:) Inspired me to work harder and get to my ideal weight goal of 170 lbs at 5 ft 10. I am down from 221 to 214 and working on getting that number down further!

Wow - I love reading your story -- it's inspirational. I can relate to knowing what to do but not acting upon it until I joined Spark People. Good Luck on your road to good health.
