My Weight Loss Journey Journal…

My story… Don’t really know where to begin…

I have struggled with my weight most of my adult life…
There are several events that hammered the nail in my overweight coffin so to speak!

One that still haunts me today was while at the doctor’s office my doctor wrote… Morbidly Obese in my chart! Wow! M-o-r-b-i-d-l-y O-b-e-s-e…

Never realized I had a problem… Until… one night I was on a snack “run”, the older gentleman in front of me in line… Had his hand wrapped around a bottle in a paper bag. He was shaking badly while counting out his change! I thought to myself… Wow, how sad! This guy has a real problem! Then I looked down… Here I stand in the grocery store, in the middle of the night, in my pajamas with a ½ gallon of ice cream in my hand… Now, who has the problem…

My wife and I got married and were unable to have children biologically. We went through the whole infertility process.

We have adopted 4 Special Needs Children. They keep me busy!

Then I began having sleep issues. Resulting in the use of a CPAP for sleep apnea.

My insurance company stated that if I wanted to have bypass surgery they would pay for it… Yet they won’t help or support me to do a “program”. To me this is just wrong!!

You name the program and I have probably tried it!
Here is a sample just a few I have tried:

L.A. Weight Loss
Mayo Clinic Diet
TOPS
Weight Watcher’s (I am a lifetime member several times over!)
Grapefruit Diet
Lean For Life
Atkins
Sparrow Weight Loss Management

And the list goes on…

I even tried out for the Biggest Loser! Here is my video entry: http://youtu.be/kYME5JeX1H4

For the past year or so… I have been hearing about Beachbody…

A good friend, teacher and Coach… Invited me to a challenge group! I thought… yeah… Right! Like I can do that program it is really tough! I fell in love with the support these groups offer! Having one of those feeling fat, could eat the house kind of days and other people in the group were too! Or when you think… I can’t do no more and the push-up queen of your group goes on vacation and sends you a photo doing push-ups near the Grand Canyon… How cool is that! To think she was on Vacay and took the time to post a picture to motivate me! The bonds I have built are priceless… In fact one lady, I met in one of my first groups… Shared her story and I continue to pray for healing for her and her family!

I became a BB Coach to keep me on my journey and help others like me who think… “I can’t do that!” Together WE CAN!

I am down 30 some pounds now…
Is my Transformation complete? Hell, No! I have a long way to go! (Goal is 200 pounds +). This goal is along way off… But I am confident that through this Beachbody support I will get there!

Stay tuned for My final TRANSFORMATION…
