Hi there! Thanks for visiting. I wanted to create a blog to keep track of my weight loss goals and to inspire other men and women out there to make a change.
Making a change in YOURSELF, is the best kind of change anyone can ever do for themselves. Yes, you may say "Oh, I'm unhappy here (in whatever city you're living in), but is that because you are unhappy there or with YOURSELF?"
That is what I have battled with for so long for so many years of my life. Am I unhappy in the city where I live, or just with myself? I found the answer. It is with myself.
I have always been overweight as long as I can remember. I was not raised in a healthy, organic, active family (No offense Mom you know you're a great cook!).
I was raised on fast food, processed food, and not being too active.
I have also been a photographer for 7 years and 5 years professionally, always capturing someone else's external beauty, which will mess with your head for awhile to not focus on yourself.
Last year, I went to visit my best friend in the MidWest. He inspired me to begin this weight loss journey, which I am happy to say I have started. I have lost over 50 pounds. If it was not for him, I would probably still feel like I have no hope and always going to be fat. My work (photography) was my distraction from reality and focusing on someone else's beauty was a distraction as well.
I joined Weight Watchers last June. The support group was phenomenal. I do not credit them however for the diet part of it. I did non processed foods, occasional sweets to not feel deprived, two cups of dieters green tea a night, and worked out twice a day in the gym. I stopped going to WW in October, maintained the loss, and started doing my own routine again in April 2012. I now am trying to focus on muscle building, etc and still eating healthy.

First step into starting your weight loss goals:
1. Eat Organic
2. Make the gym/cardio machines your best friend
3. Accept your body type for what it is. If you're curvy like myself, accept it! Say you're beautiful. You are unique.
4. Support Groups always help
5. As WW always says "Eat Right, Stay Active, Repeat."
6. LOVE YOURSELF!
