My whole life, I have struggled with food and my weight. As of October 8, 2015 I weighed 417.5 lbs, with my highest know weight at 430 lbs. I was born in 1978 and I have a height of 6′ 2″ (186 cm).
This is project is about a journey of the biggest change in my life: a quest to go from Food Addict to Triathlete(FAT). Telling a story about change, about challenge, about fear and most importantly about love.
The project will:
- Inspire others on a journey to better fitness -> That ‘better’ is truly attainable
- Reduce the stigma of being fat, reclaim the word and debunk myths about fat people
- Document in rigorous and honest detail the journey of a 400lb+ man to better fitness and health
I work as the President and CEO of the Calgary Public Library Foundation and am also the Director, External Relations at the Calgary Public Library, here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I have an amazingly patient and supportive spouse, Christine.
As the proud father of five amazing daughters(Born in 2009, 2011, 2013 and twins in 2017), one of my goals is to become more active so I can play more with them.
