The week of March 9, 2010 I woke up and said enough is enough. I joined weight watchers to help get my eating under control. My first weigh-in was embarrassing. I could not even weigh in on the weight watchers scales. I had to go somewhere else to weigh in. I found a place, and sadly I weighed 440lbs. Wow! It was definitely time to make a change.
After just the first week, I was able to weigh in on weight watchers scales! This was a small, yet positive step forward, and the train was rolling. After a few weeks I started going to the gym. At first I began with just cardio, but knew I needed to add in weight training. I started lifting with high reps. Then one day I met Regina Gunn of Gunn’s Fitness. We talked about health and weight loss, and she told me if I ever needed anything to just ask her. Well from that point, I hired her as my personal trainer. Not only is she my trainer she is a friend that cares. I had told her that I was tired of yo-yoing all my life with my weight. This time was going to be different! I’m determined to never go back. At this point, I have lost 160lbs, and I’m going strong!
Regina calls me her “Man on a Mission!” I am currently training to run my first 5k & from there a triathlon. There is nothing that can stop me. NOTHING!
Rusty update – Here’s a picture from the Sandy Feet 5K where Rusty was determined to run in under 30 minutes. He did it!
