Hi there! Welcome to my page. If you are here, you are wanting a change, you have wanted a change for a long time, and you are ready for a change. This is how I found this site, I decided enough was enough and the time was now. The key word here is 'decided', once you have decided, you just must do.

We are all going through challenges in our lives that have us wondering 'why?', we are all facing barriers to our happiness that is not in our control, the difference between everyone else and us, is that we are now taking action to find our happiness in spite of these adversities.

Having said that, we must not fool ourselves and believe it's just as easy as walking a block or two once in a while. It took us many years to get in the shape we are and now we must reverse that in just 1 year, or less.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, I decided that I should find some help here. There are compassionate, non-judgmental, human beings out there who really care about us. And you have found them. Everyone here cares about your journey, they want to be a part of the journey. I feel it's because they realize, as I do, there is much to experience when you help someone out.

I also knew what did and what didn't work for me. I knew that if I exercised 2 days, took a break, then walked, then exercised another two days, etc, etc, that on one of those breaks I would just quit. And that was my pathology, work just enough to convince yourself that you deserve a 'treat', 'treat' yourself and that was the end of that 'journey'. I need discipline and a structured plan. I needed to be guided on how to eat, I have never known how to eat correctly.

Coming from a poor childhood, the norm was not a salad, veggies or fruit. It was feast or famine in my household and this carried on through my adult life, except now it's all feast!

On a personal level, I am 47 years old with about 50 pounds to lose. I have just started this journey and would love you to join me. I am convinced that this is the right program with all that I have seen, with all that I have read and with what I have experiences thus far. I am excited to be here, and hope you can feel this excited too. I invite you to join me on my journey as a participant or as an observer if you like. I'm sure that eventually you will be convinced.

I have had a pretty tough life, but I'm not going to go into that. The only thing you need to know is that once you have decided to move ahead, there is no looking in the rear view mirror. Your experiences have made you who you are, now you have to take that knowledge and decide who you want to be.

I wish you Love and Light, I dedicate this journey to my son, Jordan (April 9, 1992 - October 4th, 2009). JWIL14
