Petaluma, California

What do you do for a living?

I’m a Graphic Designer that specializes in business branding AND I co-own a health club in Marin County.  Both keep me very busy.

Why did you start this blog?

I had put on over 60 pounds in the past year (2012-13) and decided to get serious and get back to a healthy weight.  I find that I am more successful at accomplishing a task when I speak my commitments out loud and become accountable for my actions.  This blog is my way of becoming accountable for my health and fitness choices by creating a platform where I choose to “live as my word.”  It is also a great venue to share a my journey towards achieving lifelong health with so very many who share the same struggles.

What did you look like before you put on weight?

Here is a picture of me running a 10K in San Francisco in 2010:
