I’m not some faceless stranger

file_000-23I’m not the face of a company, diet plan, vitamin company, supplement vendor, or medical procedure. I am not some anonymous marketing tool. I’m just a former Marine who got fat and then lost a bunch of weight using Whole30 and the Paleo diet. Now, a year after starting, I’ve added exercise to my daily routine.

I recently had a nice conversation with a gentleman who noted that it’s inspiring to meet someone who has lost as much weight as I have, as seeing someone in the flesh makes it seem more attainable. This is the very reason I post so many photos. It’s not that I love posting selfies; it’s because through my photos, you get to see me as a real person, and hopefully that translates into the message of, “I’m a real person. I did this. You can do it, too!”

Many of you who visit this site know me. For those who don’t, email or message me and I will answer you! Leave a comment, even if it’s just to say hi, and I’ll say hi back! I’m not some distant made-up person. I’m a real-life former Marine who felt the say way you do. I’ve made the transition from unhealthy to healthy, and I’m now in the process of working my way up to being fit.

I’m a person who doesn’t like exercise, and I’m learning to enjoy it. The key for me was taking it slowly and easing into it in such a way that didn’t leave me aching, sore, or injured.

You can do this. Take it from me, a real person who, just like you, was looking for a way to lose weight that was sustainable and easy to adopt for the rest of my life. Check out the links to the right and start your own journey today.
