Around 3 years ago I started gaining weight; culminating early this year a very unpleasant result — I packed on an enormous amount of poundage.

I was not heavy set. I was not big boned, hell I wasn’t even fat …

I was morbidly obese. Next to me; Shamu appeared svelte.

Previously I had dropped a considerable amount of weight and kept it off for several years, however from 2005 through 2007 I had a series of life setbacks. These setbacks made me simply not care about neither my appearance nor health. I had completely given up on myself.  The final product was the morbidly obese person in the first set of pictures below. Life can be a bastard, it had me on the canvass and the count had reached 9.

I was a heart attack, stroke and diabetic in waiting.

In March of this year I finally woke up and realized that this was no way to go through life. In the past seven months I have dropped 115 pounds.  My final goal is a lean and healthy 185 pounds. I plan to reach that mark by this Christmas.

I re-took control of myself and not only lost weight, but reshaped and remade my body. As a Doctor of Chiropractic I am well aware that more than likely I have done some irreversible damage to my system.  I did not remodel by physique and change my eating habits to add years to my life — I did it to fully enjoy the years I have left.

In January/February 2009 I will be embarking on a new business venture to assist others in their journey to remold their bodies and in turn take control of their lives.

For the time being this blog will serve as a chronicle of my sojourn from being Fat Then to Fit Now.  It will also be a companion to both my lifestyle business and to my web site www.fatthenfitnow.com
