One Year

I can’t really believe it’s been a whole 12 months since I started losing weight. It still almost feels like yesterday I stepped into Ryder’s gym to weigh in and then hop on the elliptical machine. Wow. There’s a lot I could say right now but a picture is worth a thousand words:

I’m not going write a lot in this post, instead I am going to do something I don’t do often enough – thank my family and friends.

First and foremost, my friend/coworker/cofounder/big brother Dave – Thank you for all of the encouragement and time you dedicated to helping and pushing me. You are by far one of the major reasons I was able to stay the course on my journey. From staying at Ryder on the elliptical machine with me for hours on end when you had better things to do, to signing up at my local gym and hitting the iron with me, and of course always trying to keep me positive and motivated (which can be realllllllllly hard to do sometimes, I know). Thank you. I really do appreciate the effort and time you’ve invested in me. No amount of Seasons 52 could repay you for that.

To my good friend Joe – Thank you for keeping me motivated and always pushing me in the gym. Your ideas, guidance, and routines are awesome and I love bouncing my ideas and research off of you. Go revLife!

To my buddy Mark – Thank you for all the positive encouragement and motivation. I know every time I tell you something that im doing and you disagree with me, I know I must be on the right track. hahahaha =)

To my father – Thank you for constantly being negative. Without you I wouldn’t have realized I was fat and lazy. LOL. In all seriousness though, I can always expect you to be real with me, though I have hated you for a long time because of it, i’ve come to learn to appreciate it in its own unique way. Your still an ass, but I love you. haha

To my family – Thank you for all of the positive words, the motivation, the encouragement, and even the guidance. I appreciate every one of you and you have all helped me in some way achieve my goals. I love you all!

To all my friends and current/past coworkers – Thank you for being a part of my journey and for all of the kind words you have given me.

With that, my one year anniversary is over and I am truly excited to see where I will be a year from now. If the sky is the limit I fully intend on breaking past it. =)

  1. wow really cockyhead tell us what you really think. Listen, from the first minutes you took your first breath we all knew you were special and there was nothing you couldnt do. Unfortunately you had to find yourself. Congratulations on your path and journey. May you always inspire us with your personality and humor lol im so proud of you but then your my favorite cockyhead. May God continue to bestow his blessings on you. You definitely have made me and poppop so proud! God bless! take Care! I love you always forever Auntie J oxoxox

  2. You’ve always made me proud to call you my son. Even when you were going thru your teen/growth pains and tried everything to make my life miserable and blame me for all the wrongs in your life. I maintained the faith that the real you would shine thru one day and you would grow into the man you are today. I love you and I’m proud of all you’ve accomplished and have yet to accomplish….keep dreaming and keep reaching!

    Love you, mom
