Token Fat Guy

When I started my transformation, I noticed how badly really fat people are treated sometimes...especially at the gym. So I had to develop this attitude that, "Hey! I'm fat and I need to be here. I don't care what you think about me! I'm this gym's Token Fat Guy!"

Wearing my custom made Token Fat Guy shirt, with my starting weight on the back in a HUGE FONT so people on the row of treadmills behind me can read it, I push myself just a little harder each week. And each week I ...

Wearing my custom made Token Fat Guy shirt, with my starting weight on the back in a HUGE FONT so people on the row of treadmills behind me can read it, I push myself just a little harder each week. And each week I drop just a tiny bit more at the scales.

NOTE: Now that I've lost a large amount of weight, I'm getting lots of people telling me that I need to change my name from TokenFatGuy. But since I still am in a position of trying to help people with their transformations, I will keep the name for now. Plus, I own www.TokenFatGuy.com and changing the domain name would just be a big hassle.

Want to find out how I did it? Read my blogs. Everytime I learn something new, I write about it. Everytime I make a change to my diet and/or workout...I write about it. Every Monday, like clockwork, I update my blog with new information.

**NEW BEGINING**
I had something happen in my life that really messed me up in the head. Because of it, I couldn't maintain focus or even maintain my weight. After a year of feeling sorry for myself I decided enough was enough. So I'm back to lose it all over again.

A note to anyone that reads this and thinks, "oh if I lost all my weight, I'd NEVER put it back on again"....it happens much easier than you'd think. Maintaining focus is everything. I learned the hard way.

My Goals:
My overall weight goal is to get down to 180...then I'll figure out what I want to do next. I started out at 292 pounds.

However, I did once get down to 199. But I messed it up and shot up to 307. Now I'm back to do it all over again.

My Program:
I do weight lifting 3 times a week and cardio 3 times a week. Sometimes I take an hour long walk in the afternoons just to jump start my metabolism after hours of sitting at my computer.

Personal Information:
Originally from Niles, MI...I've moved to Charlotte, NC where I laugh at the people that just can't drive when there is snow.

I run my own website to track my progress.

Well, you KNOW what's possible... you've done it before, and this time it'll be easier because you're already full of knowledge! May it fly off (both of us) with ease!

Welcome home! Glad to see you back here!

We can all "do it again" together... this time it WILL stick! (and I mean the loss, not the weight!)

I'm still around...I just don't check in much. I had some problems and it hurt my progress.

So I'm digging myself back out of a hole and I'm back on plan. This is going to take a while.
