One Year Ago, the Journey Began

One year ago, Kerie and I started our journey. We thought we understood what the journey was all about. For all we knew, it was about weight loss. That is a noble and worthy journey to take. But like with any trek, it becomes multi-faceted and beyond what you imagined along the way. That certainly is true for us.

We did lose the weight. We've lost a combined 240 pounds. What we didn't expect to find was fitness and revitalized lives. For those of us who struggle with weight, we want to lose it for a variety of reasons. It may be a fear of disease, the desire to change our outward appearance, or even the knowledge that it is just the right thing to do. But until you do it, you don't really understand how revolutionary it is. 

Being a normal weight and being fit grants you an energy in life that is unmistakable. We think more clearly. It is as if some fog has been lifted. We persevere through projects that we would have once shunned due to a lack of physical vitality. We could continue to describe it all day long, but you simply have to experience it.

Sure, being fit is not all there is to life, but it sure makes all the other parts of life even better. Please, join us. We've reached our goal in weight, but the journey to be fit is lifelong. Take that challenge. We'll walk with you!
