I should have been kicked out of the military! I don't truly know why I wasn't - and I can only draw the conclusion that there was a plan. This is that plan!
retention issues the military faces today is from military members who can not meet fitness standards. For many years, that was me. I couldn't find the support I needed to make the change necessary. Until Now! I got my head on straight, got focused on my health and as a result I'm in the best shape of my life with the help of some fantastic patriots I call Wingmen. Once I lost 91 pounds, my life changed forever and now my focus is on giving back to the community that saved my life and my career by reaching out to others who feel like they have no place left to turn.
I've launched some tools to help anyone struggling with staying focused on their weight loss and fitness goals, but I've done all that I can do. I've developed a website, a podcast, a mobile app and a newsletter. I'm pretty active on the major social media networking sites.
The program I used to lose the weight, is Weight Watchers, but I believe every plan works if you're committed and focused enough to work it. Since I no longer pay for that service, because I'm a lifetime member, I've reinvested my $45/month meeting fee into developing these tools. I'm employed part time as a leader and I use my income from my meetings to sustain the effort as well. With that, I'm constantly working to improve the show and provide content as I develop new ways to reach out. I'm glad to do that because it's working. I would like to grow and expand the reach but I've reached my limits, your help as a patron will enable me to continue to grow the community and have a far greater impact. You are under NO obligation to become a patron, everything I do currently will still be available - but if you do, know that I appreciate it. Your support of the show will enable to me look for new ways to reach those who believe that there is no hope. If you'd like to support the show financially, thank you!
If you are unable, or don't want to, that's completely fine as well. I want to make these tools and the show available to everyone who needs it - That has been my intention from the start. I simply want to give back to the community that saved my life!
P.S. - If you'd prefer to make a one time donation, you can do that through Venmo or PayPal. However, Venmo and PayPal are not automatically linked to Patreon, so the rewards listed here aren't currently available for one time donations. (You still get a great big thank you from me though)
