Bear, The Incredible Shrinking DJ!
OK! I have been hammered about doing a post on this. Yes, I lost some weight. Back in October, my doctor sat me down and said, “Son, if you don’t do something, you are going to die a young man.” I’m not kidding.
So I started a program October 17, 2011. My first goal was to get off all my medication, which included 2 diabetes meds including insulin and 3 high blood pressure meds. I met that goal by Christmas. No more meds!
So I started this program at 365 lbs. Yep! I put the BIG in Bear! Yikes! Size 56 jeans, and shirts were 6XLT!
So today which is my 51st birthday, I gave myself the best birthday present I could think of. I weighed in and I have lost in 103 lbs in 24 weeks! I now weigh 262 lbs.
I called my wife with the news as soon as I got off the scale. We cried, and tonight we will celebrate. Probably with extra broccoli! I went clothes shopping and my jean size is now size 44, and my shirts are a 2XLT. I am 6’3″, so I need the TALL part now.
I salute everyone who has succeeded in losing weight. it ain’t easy and everyone has been amazing supportive. If you need to lose weight or want to I hope I can be an inspiration for you. If I can lose 100 lbs you CAN TOO! I’m not that smart!
