Loving life

Hello everyone.  My name is Jason and I am a 36 year old father of three who has been in a bit of "fat" denial.  I have never been this weight before and it took me some time just to actually "see" just how big I had gotten.  Then when I was looking at some pics from a year ago, I started to realize I did not like what I saw.  I had an auto vs. construction accident 7 yrs ago in which I lost 75 lbs in three weeks while I was in a coma.  Umm... not wanting to go that route again.  I had to re-learn how to do everything like walk, talk and even how to swallow water.  The doctors said I needed to gain some weight back.  I went way to far and gained over 100 lbs back.  I tried to put it off on the Traumatic Brain Injury I had acquired. That excuse only goes so far.

 

Now I have made a miraculous recovery and I am trying to go back to work full time, lose 55 lbs and get off disability.  I have made it through some pretty challenging circumstances but losing this weight takes the cake.  I wish all of the others in this journey with me, "Good Luck!"  I hope everyone has a great day!
