I am a retired firefighter from Ohio and, of course, a Buckeye fan. As a firefighter, I spent 30 years trying to help others and to stay somewhat in shape. It seemed that as I went up in the ranks, I gained weight and worked out less. Adding to that, I have kicked the habit of tobacco (all forms), which meant that I began eating more.

I am a retired firefighter from Ohio and, of course, a Buckeye fan. As a firefighter, I spent 30 years trying to help others and to stay somewhat in shape. It seemed that as I went up in the ranks, I gained weight and worked out less. Adding to that, I have kicked the habit of tobacco (all forms), which meant that I began eating more.

When I entered the Fire Department, I weighed 180 pounds and retired 30 years later weighing 240. Ten years after retirement, I weighed 265 and my friends and family were amazed how much I gained. I felt disappointed and ashamed at what I had let myself balloon to, so I began my January 1st goal to lose some 60 pounds by July 1st. I take long walks through the woods almost every day and I feel great.

God has been my mentor and companion through this journey. I couldn't have lost my desire for tobacco or food without His help.

My Goals:
My goal is to see what it would be like to return to a healthy weight and BMI at or below 200 pounds.

I began my journey of losing weight on January 1, 2014 at a weight of 265 pounds.

I hope to get to my target weight of 200 pounds by July 1, 2014.

My Program:
I purchased a Spark Tracker and love that it gives me a daily goal and motivation.

I walk the wooded trails around my home, giving me 4 to 6 miles of walking each day.

I also use my Nutribullet daily and have cut out the sugars, grains and peanuts which I discovered pack on the weight and contain fungal mycotoxins.

Personal Information:
I grew up in Ohio and joined a Fire Department. I went from firefighter to Fire Chief, from active to inactive. As a firefighter, I gave up tobacco and began to gain weight. This gain increased as I aged. Now, at 65, I have a new resolve to put off my bad habits and bring my mind and body back to where God would want it to be.
