My name is Franco. In 1999 I was 550 pounds. I had weight loss surgery and lost almost 250. I was under 275 pounds once for about 3 days…. The early 2000’s were amazing for me. I could walk, ride my bike for hours. The most important thing for me was that I could fit in any seat… Including air plane seats and I went to Montana, the Bahamas, Curacao and Disney. It was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I loved not being scared of the world around me. Going to the theater, going to concerts.. hockey games…
In 2006 after a traumatic year, I ended up breaking my foot. That was the clincher. I went from 326lbs where I hovered for a year or two and just started gaining weight. I have been floating around 400 for 2 years…. and now am a little more than that.
Then this happened…….
On January 6, 2014, I decided that I needed to make a change and haven’t looked back since. 458 days later, today, 100lbs are gone. That was my goal. It didn’t happen in a year like I had hoped but even as a surprise to me, I never gave up. I found out quick that the dream was free but the hustle was sold separately. I have been writing about the journey along the way. If you found it on your own, thank you for reading.
I hope you find something in my writing and blogs to connect with. Together.
Your comments, emails, motivation and inspiration are greatly welcome. I am going to whine, cry, and stumble. But I hope someday I’ll inspire.
Feel the love,
P.S. Don’t read into the name of the site too much. After 4 hours of trying to get something in a fitness direction I decided to use a song title from my favorite singe/song writer, Butch Walker.
