05/07/2012 Official Weigh-In, Regionals

As of 05/04/12: 237 lbs  Three months ago, if I had seen that number on the scale I would have done cartwheels, thrown a party, or perhaps even done something crazy like send Michelle Bachman a check because even a big heaping pile of dog shit needs a small ray of sunlight. In any case…

2011-2012 1 Fat Year in Review

A Fat Year in Review 2011-2012 The Decision: On March 20th 2011, I started a personal evolution that feels as if it was a part of another life, or a foggy moment in your memory which you can feel yet can’t place.  I was angry, miserable, and quite possibly moments away from ending my own…
