In one capacity or other I’ve been involved with weight loss for many years. From my humble beginnings as a 300 pound overweight guy (who for the first time walked into a YMCA back in February of 2003) to becoming a licensed / practicing Physician Assistant and Certified Health Coach specializing in weight management at… READ MORE
If I Can Do It, So Can You!

An Education in Perspiration
It’s no secret that exercise is a key component to losing weight and keeping it off. Without exercise, you can’t burn the calories needed to shed the weight. Start by simply walking down the street, taking a bike ride, or even heading out to the gym. Exercise can take you to places you’ve never been. Before you know it, the newer, healthier you will be climbing mountains and having a whole lot of fun doing it!
Clean Out Your Closet
In order to move ahead with your life and become the person you were truly meant to be, you’ll need to clean out your emotional closet. Resolving past issues and tidying up baggage that is holding you back will allow you to move ahead with your life, once and for all. After you’ve cleaned out your closet, then you can focus on the more beautiful you that’s just beneath the surface!

Hi LWFY gang, I’ve just gotten done with my weekly yoga class and I feel amazing. I have a really personal connection to the practice of yoga. If you’re familiar with my story, then you know that my weight was related to my struggle with accepting myself as a gay man. As I talk about… READ MORE
Judge Judy always says, “Keep it simple stupid!” While I would never call anyone stupid, I do appreciate the clarity of the saying. I counsel people on losing weight all the time, and there is a pretty consistent pre-conceived idea that losing weight is extremely complicated. As a former overweight person, I know damn well… READ MORE
