I DID IT - I LOST 100LBS!!!!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, December 10, 2010


December 28th, 2009 I made the decision to take my life back!! I've walked and or ran over 2000 miles this year, I've cross trained more hours than I can count. I've learned how to eat better and MAGICAL things have happened.

I hope you enjoy this video as I celebrate my journey and remind myself where I came from.

I will NEVER go back to being that guy!!!

This is proof of What Faith Can Do.

  And so it starts. Hopefully to never be the same. Bye bye 75 pounds. I won't miss you. It is my prayer that someone besides myself begins tonight as well, and we can stand together in this.

Blessings...

    Thank you, thank you, thank you... I was at an actual "low" point (or, as I like to call it, a %?$&%& plateau!), as I was reading The Spark, they mentioned we should go and read inspirational stories. Yours is the first I read. I got a jolt. Thank you again. I don't even need to read another one. I am psyched! In short: woohoo! You look awesome, and so will I in a couple of months.

    Great job on the blog. Hope you don't mind I added you as a friend. I'm looking for inspiring people to inspire me and I'm amazed at what you've accomplished in such a short time. I've just started walking and can only jog for a min at a time, but that's a start.

  I am really struggling with my weight and since I have fibromyalgia everytime I try to exercise I end up hurting something (achille heel, shoulder, sciatica,etc.) and then have to stop and go to physical therapy. I find this very depressing and have been eating everything wrong. Your blog gave me inspiration again. Thanks.
