I've spent the better part of the last 28 years as obese; I've tried different methods to lose & maintain weight in the past with fantastic (yet, short lived) results. I'd have to guess I've gained and lost almost 600 pounds in those 28 years.

Now in my mid 40's I've come to a realization: I've been trying to fix my emotional state in order to lose weight - which is what they always tell you is the proper way to approach it - and now it's time to lose the weight in order to fix my emotional state.

I'm married with two children, and for the first time in my life I want to succeed for them - not just for me.
