Yesterday I posted about our newest friend, Diamond's blog, A day in the Zone. Yesterday was also the season finale of The Biggest Loser. Judging by the comments on that post and the other on my struggles, we could use all the inspiration we can get.
My wife had grown up with a man named Tim Dockery. The first time I met him, he had to be tipping the scales at over 400 pounds. His top weight was 547 pounds. He had many health problems and had to be disabled. One day he decided that enough was enough, and started walking on a treadmill. first day he lasted a minute. from there things progressed. Tim ended up losing over 300 pounds and in 2006 he was proclaimed the TOPS(Take Off Pounds Sensibly) national weight loss king. Click here to read his story.
