My name is Mark and I live in iuka, Mississippi. I am 38 years old and have been overweight for most of my life. As I approach middle age, I am finally fed up with being fat! I chose Southern Warrior as the title for this page because I have taken a WARRIOR approach to getting this weight off for good! For me, the weight has become my enemy and it's time to squash that enemy like a bug. :o)

I realize that it will be a slow process for me, but I am commited to making the necessary changes so that I can achieve my goals and become a healthier and MUCH happier individual. As you can see from the pictures, I have a LOOOOONG way to go. But the first step is always the most important.

For me, part of this journey is the obvious health reasons. I am middle aged now and I surely FEEL middle aged with all this weight. The other part of it is that I just want to feel attractive again.

    Mark, I still wish you'd dedicate more time to taking care of yourself. Praying for you. Hoping you come back to Spark. SO many groups here, you'd find one you'd like I'm sure.

    Mark, I know you're a super busy guy. Just wondering where things are at with your weight loss and where YOU are on your list of priorities. Just want you to know you're being thought of, prayed for, and wished well.

    Stopping by to say Hi from the fibro friends team. Anything you can think of or need or want just ask as we are a work in progress. Fibro is painful but doesn't need to be devastating. Support helps that alot. So post often so we can get to know you and help in any way we can
    Gentle hugs and many Blessings,
