10 Years…


Pretty Damn Fat, Driving a Lemon, Totaling  my car because some idiot parked in the left lane of a highway at 5:30 am, sharing a house with a roommate in South West Allentown. My Dad and his wife buy me a new car. Turned 40 in April. Tried and failed at multiple internet dating sites. Still miserable as a Quality Assurance & Digital Imaging Technician now working in the same building I had been for 10 years for a new company. Getting to know my future wife while at work, asking her out on a date that lasted 10 hours on October 2nd. Taking her as my date to my cousin’s 2nd Wedding (I’m playing the piano at the Hotel Bethlehem where the wedding was), celebrating Christmas with her family and introducing her to mine and Celebrating New Years with her BFF Beth in South Western Pa.



Hella Thinner but far from fit. My wife and I are married going on 7 Years come May 4th and 10 years together come October 2nd. Still miserable at my job, although now working as a Quality Assurance Microfilm Technician. The current company is looking to sell so it’s the same all over again. We live in an apartment with our cat Nigel on the East Side of Allentown Bordering Bethlehem. Still driving that lil car my late Dad got me in 2010.  Putting my foot down and looking for a new job, 20 years of “safe misery” is no way to live. Being far more active on my blog. And tackling this weight loss journey head on. By proof in the photos I’ve come along quite a bit in a decade, so I know it can be done. Not to mention I still want to hit up the nudist resort after I turn 50 🙂
