Today, 12.31.14 and I stepped on the scale for the last time in 2014 expecting to be lighter than I was on 12.31.13 RESULTS = Down 6#. Some will say “so what” six pounds, but to a 55 year old young man who has always struggled with being FAT & OBESE, that’s a huge number.

Back on 12.21.09 I weight 310# and that’s the day that changed my life forever. I was tested for sleep apnea with the expectation of being hooked up to and sleeping with a new bed partner every night “The C-Pap Machine.” When they told me I was free and clear of sleep apnea I was ready to lose weight.

With no pills, no potions and no surgeries… Fast forward to 11/2011, I lost 135#. Good ‘ole exercise and following the Joy Bauer Book YOUR INNER SKINNY and I was inducted into her JoyFitClub on 11.29.10

My real point is losing all of that weight was awesome, but I did gain back and weight has always been like a roller coaster for me. In the winter of 2014, I gained 40# in 3 months and lost 35# of that during The Greatest Weight Loss Challenge I, where 12 friends said hey let’s lose weight. We all paid $20 each to do it and winner take all after 12 weeks. Well, I won that challenge. I’m #42.


And in Challenge II, I was #6… It was hard to win this one as I lost 23# in Challenge I.


Losing weight will always be a challenge for me, BECAUSE I LIKE TO EAT.

Weighing 175# in 2011 was actually TOO SKINNY!!! People were asking me are you sick. I didn’t need to weight 175# to be healthy. I need to be right at 200# to be healthy, happy and good looking. LOL

My 2015 goal is to get back to my ideal weight 200#. So today is my last indulgence, as 2015 starts 1.1.15.

Who’s with me?
