Happy Anniversary!


Thank you, Janice, for the last 22 years. There have been joys and tears and surprises, both wonderful and terrible. Through it all, you have been there for me. You are wonderful and I am so blessed to have you as my wife. Looking forward to continue the adventure in the years to come!

Plan B

Ok, Thanksgiving may have not gone according to plan.

How you react when things don’t go according to plan is just as important as having a plan. Here’s the approach Janice and I have developed over the last couple years after a bad day: Start over.

You have the same goals you had the day before. Keep your focus. Choose to do better.

A bad day is not an excuse to give up and go back to the bad and unhealthy habits that got you where you are. That’s how I got to be 350 pounds.

You are not going to reach your goal in one day. But each day take the next step to reaching your goal. Some days the strides you take toward your goal will be larger than others. Some days you might take a detour. Each day you need to get back at it. No matter what happened the day before. Know where you’re going and get back on track.

If you keep going, you’ll reach your destination. Don’t stop where you are and keep going forward. It’s a new day, live like it.

The Motivation to Begin

This is how we got started on our journey to a healthy lifestyle and living it every day.

This is what we looked like in December 2014.

This is what we look like now.


It has taken time, work and a lot of patience, but we made our weight goals.

Now, we are working just as hard to stay here.

It’s our Motivation 2 Maintain.

Janice has lost 30 pounds over the course of our new lifestyle and I have lost 140. But, we are not resting on what we have done, like we are finished. We’ve been here before. Losing weight and putting it back on.

This time it’s different. Like I mentioned earlier, a healthy weight is not just a goal to achieve but a lifestyle to live out every day.

It’s the reason for this blog. We’re trying out new recipes and trying new tips to nurture this healthier lifestyle and we’re sharing our experience to help others and help us stay on track.


There are distractions all along the way and there are reasons to stop short, but if you keep your focus, you can get where you’re going.
