Maybe you’ve been a long time reader or this could be your first time stopping by. Either way, you’ve dropped by at a great time. I’ve embarked on what is proving to be an amazing transformation; Some might even call it a complete 180.
The morning of June 4th 2010 hit me like a heart attack- literally. I never expected that at 26 years old I would find myself surrounded by doctors and nurses, lying in the cardiac ward of my local hospital. Thankfully I made it though, hints why you’re reading this. That event served as my wake-up call. I realized that I needed to lead a healthier life.
I’ve taken deliberate steps toward getting healthy: a new eating plan and workout routine are in place. Thus far I’ve dropped 100lbs, gone from an XXL shirt to a medium and a size 44 waist to a 34!
The transformation hasn’t just been physical; this journey is about far more than just pounds lost. When I began I was unemployed, had zero self-confidence and was stuck in an abusive relationship with my father. It’s been a hell of a journey, but I’m glad to say the fight has been worth it!
My goal is simple — to help inspire people to engage in living healthier, more active lifestyles. My hope is that this site will become a resource for anyone looking to begin your own 180. Look for the My 180 tag for stories, inspiration and motivation for wherever you are in your own journey. Maybe I’ve inspired you to begin your own 180. If so, let me know.
