Here is where we all say how we want to feel better, look great for the beach, fit into that wedding dress, etc. But let's be blunt for a moment: I am in my late 40's and started this journey close to 400 pounds. If I don't lose weight soon, I am not going to live to see 50. That's what it's about this time. If you are younger, beat this now before the stakes get this high.

I am a deskbound computer programmer who makes online sports games for a living. In my spare time I am active in community theatre (when I can get a role, not many for men this age and size) and I am part of an improv comedy troupe that performs once a month (at least fat is funny!).

I am fighting sleep apnea, high blood pressure and diabetes, plus atrial fibrillation which makes exercise difficult. If I had lost this weight 7-8 years ago I wouldn't have any of these.
