I Lost 86 Pounds and Learned a Few Things
Chris Higgins

There is right timing and then there is perfect timing, this piece was the latter for me today. I have struggled with weight in past 7–8 years. To be true I always thought I was fat, popular media and culture does that to you I guess. Now looking back to a few years ago I know I was not obese, but today I am. A few things have been going on in our lives resulting in a year full of uncertainty and not focused on anybody’s health or physical well being.

Reading your story has pushed me to the realization that unless I tighten my belt and show up nothing changes.

On a side note, I would love to see the before afters… they are no doubt porn for those struggling with weight; me included.
