Hello, welcome to my first blog. This blog is intended to encourage obese people and friends of obese people. I wanted to create an honest and frank website about losing massive amounts of weight. This is not about "losing 40 pounds in 60 days". This is my trek to good health. You can join me, post responses and questions as I enter the next chapter of my personal weight loss. I will be reproducing this blog site in the third part of my new book about "Morbid Obesity: Eat to live, not live to eat". It will follow my past path from young and fit to 44 years old and fat. The second part will be leading up to and life after bariatric surgery. More than an autobiography; the book and this site, in cooperation with medical professionals and trusted resources, will answer many of the medical questions about obese complications and the steps necessary to obtain your ideal weight and live a long and happy life.


  1. Hey, congratulations on making some radical changes already. Have you considered the possibility that you can accomplish your goals without the surgery?? Just a thought, reading your blog makes me think that you're already on your way...
    BTW, I'm 42, about 100 lbs. overweight, just joined Weight Watchers (not a chronic dieter, not a dieter at all!), you have all of my good wishes on this very difficult journey.

  2. Thanks. Believe me, I've tried and tried and maybe my current routine would help me accomplish my goals, but, personally, I need a long term solution. Bariatric surgery isn't really a solution in of itself. It's really more of a long term "tool". It helps me stay on track knowing that I have the "Realize" band to help me lose 150 pounds. Good luck with Weight Watchers. I tried for a year and then went back to normal and gained all the weight back.
