Braggin on James!!

I'm going to brag on James for this post!  If you haven't seen James in a while you probably wouldn't recognize him.  Last summer I came home from the Czech Rep. and just felt it was time for our family to start eating better.

I felt that we needed to do better for our family, each other and ourselves.  We didn't eat awful but we needed to do much better.  James was having some major body pains.  He went to see a surgeon and was told he needed MAJOR ankle surgery.  James just didn't want this surgery and knew it would be hard on his body and the recovery that would be needed was three to five months off of work.

When I came back from Czech I found this book, Metabolism Miracle.  I started reading about this book and it had a check list to see if you were this type of metabolism or not.  After reading the checklist I discovered that both James and I were both matches.

After eating clean and working hard I am so proud of James.  He was and still is so dedicated to loosing weight and being healthy.  He has lost a total of FORTY FIVE pounds!!  No diet pills or starving himself, just good clean eating!  After six months of eating clean, he also started working out.  He has been doing Crossfit for the last two months and his body is starting to transform like crazy.  He saw one of his coaches from  high school and his coach asked if he was at playing weight and James was so happy to say, yes!

Since loosing forty five pounds, James' body aches and ankle pain have gone away!  He started out in a size 36 pants and an XL shirt and now he wears a size 33 pants and medium shirt. His starting weight was 217 and he now weighs 172!

So proud of you babe!!! You have worked hard and have inspired a lot of people!!
