Dean's Journey

About Me

My Lifestyle changes/programs are;

Modified versions of The Maker's Diet and Atkins along with increased exercising.

My high weight was 741 pounds and my current weight is 555.

I have struggled with my weight (Yo-Yo'd) as far back as I can remember. I was a very big kid, in kindergarten at age 5, I was already 5'2" and tipped the scales at a WHOPPING 102#.

By the time I was in 9th grade I was 6'1" and over 350+ pounds. ...
About Me

My Lifestyle changes/programs are;

My high weight was 741 pounds and my current weight is 555.

I have struggled with my weight (Yo-Yo'd) as far back as I can remember. I was a very big kid, in kindergarten at age 5, I was already 5'2" and tipped the scales at a WHOPPING 102#.

By the time I was in 9th grade I was 6'1" and over 350+ pounds. My weight Yo-Yo'd as I was in Football, Wrestling and Track. Since I have been 18 years old my lowest weight was 203# while in the U.S. Navy, however, my weight ballooned back up to 315# by the time my 4-year hitch was up. Since that time I have yo-yo'd several times.

Since the Navy, my high weight was 741# and my current weight is 555#. I am a emotional and bored eater. I love to workout in a pool, and when my weight gets to within their weight capacity/ limits on a total-gym, with weight machines, bikes and treadmills I'll add those to my exercise plans. So at this point and at this weight its very difficult but it has to be done. And so the journey begins...
