I had thought about doing this photo slide video for over a year now.  Then, I just kept putting it off and putting it off.  You see for the most part I am not a "look at me" type of person.  I have always been a quiet and shy guy (trust me I used to be).  
 Picture is from 2007

However, as I have been blogging more and been more interactive on Google+, I kept hearing feedback about how I inspire and motivate people and that my story is great and needs to be shared.

Some people that just met me, assume I have always been an active person.    It is quite the opposite, I used to hate running and have ALWAYS been overweight until the last 7 years.  (I am not a person that gained weight during college or after I got married.  The obesity was there from the beginning.)

Then 2-3 weeks ago, I decided enough of messing around, lets do this.  I wanted to show people visually where I started from to where I am now. 

I am not going to write a whole lot more here on this blog post, because I want you to watch the 3 minute and 40 second video.  The purpose of the video was to keep it short but to include as much as possible.

The video could have included a lot more pics but I think the point of the story can be seen and heard very clearly.  I know the music is a bit corny, but it actually fits the story pretty well.  (I also had to pick the music from YouTube's music library.  I originally wanted Bon Jovi's My Life song.)

My photo slide video is below and it illustrates how I went from being an overweight child, teenager and adult to a marathon runner.  I am hoping others will find my weight loss story to be inspirational.


So this story can be heard and inspire others, PLEASE share this Blog Post and/or YouTube link among your social media platforms.  I want others to realize that anything is possible if they put in the work.  Their past does not have to be their future.

Please like and comment on YouTube also, this will help others find it on YouTube in the future when they need some guidance.

I do recommend you watch this via the YouTube button in the bottom right so you can see the full pop up messages.  They sometimes get cut off in this small screen.

Thanks to everyone on +Google+ , Facebook, Twitter, +Gentlemint for all of your support, comments, requests, +1s, mints and likes in the past. They all mean a lot and I hope I can continue to help others in the future.
