Starting on Sparks again.2/1/2014

For most of the last 20 years I have been out of shape and very self-conscious. My career was very physical, but I ate a lot because thats what hardworking guys did. Poor food/ beverage choices were commonplace day to day. Eating healthy was a salad with everything on it( including bacon bits). My family on one side has a background of eating/obesity issues. My self-image was so poor I hated the thought of taking off my shirt in private, let alone a public beach. My body was in terrible shape and I did not want to be unhealthy. Only I can take care of my body and that is what I have chosen to do.

    Hey man. Thought I would give you an add since your achievements are very inspirational. I'm only 24 years old (and a fairly tiny 24 year old at that) but I (and my wife) have recently noticed a growing tire around my waist. It's more like a bicycle tire but I want to stop it where it is, stop eating terrible, and change my lifestyle through exercise, working out, and eating well.

    Your story is definitely inspiring, so keep up the awesome work man!!
