    Hi Dwayne! Read your story on the “That’sFit” site – your success is outstanding! Keep up the good work … YOU are an inspiration, and you look awesome, dude!. I’ve been up and down the scale with my own weight over the years. It is a wonderful feeling to know that, before he passed away, my father saw the more positive changes I’ve made for myself. I’ll keep track of your blog 😉

      Thanks so much, this blog is what is keeping me motivated to push myself. I am glad to hear you have made some positive changes, and sorry to hear about your father’s passing. Keep up the small changes for the better and keep us all updated!

    I love hearing about success stories like yours! I’ve watched the biggest loser several times and it’s so motivating. I’ve believed for a long time now that when someone becomes overweight or even obese, that there is always an underlying issue that needs to be addressed first, otherwise, it’s just like putting a band aid on the problem. There is usually always something from within that hasn’t yet been addressed for the reason they turn to food, food is comforting, and also can become addictive just like anything else, the more your comforted the more you have to have, and endless cycle but yet all the while feeling guilty and disappointed deep inside.

    I’ve added your blog to my blog roll, hopefully anyone who comes to my site that may be suffering with weight issues will click on your blog and become inspired and motivated.

      Wow thanks for the encouragement and adding me to your blog roll. I have worked with a counselor during and since my time at the resort and found that it was definitely something I needed. Addressing your root issues with weight and binging are key to success and a trained professional can help you come up with strategies to change that behavior, just takes time and effort. Thanks again!

    Hi Dwayne, I was at fitness ridge resort too (I think during your second week there). I love your blog, and thanks to the article on aol I was able to see it. The pictures are great! And thanks for giving the details about “Treading”. That was a great workout. Keep up the good work. You are inspiring- Christina

      Treading was and is my favorite thing to do outside of hiking and kettlebells. It is such a fast workout and it is front loaded so you get the real hard parts out of the way. You just have to find ways to keep pushing yourself. Thanks for the comments and support! I plan to do an in depth article on the different classes and things I tried at the resort. Hope you find it interesting.

    You are doing sooooooo well. The good thing is you didn’t give up after your big dinner. You acknowledged what you did and decided it was something you would be more careful about. YEAH for you!
    I enjoy your blogs !

      Yeah, I have been a little bad on my vacation, but life is about healthy and not healthy choices. The key is to be honest and move towards the good behaviors. One of my favorite quotes goes something like, “The enemy of the good is the perfect.” You are always going to stumble, and sometimes it is by choice. I chose those foods and quantities, but I am working for a 90/10 split with 90 percent healthy, and 10 percent unhealthy. That is what they stressed in counseling at the resort I went to and it works rather well. THanks for the comments!
