weight watchers inches or pounds

It’s come to my attention that Weight Watchers does not track inches lost over the week, but rather focuses squarely on the scale, giving no credit to a gain in muscle. Does weight watchers understand or even promote an active lifestyle? and if they do, they simply MUST understand that a body building muscle is […]

constant and never ending improvement

One of the most powerful lessons I learned years ago when I was starting my weight loss transformation, was from Anthony Robbins’ book Unlimited Power. In it I learned of the principle CANI, or Constant And Neverending Improvement. I became a student of small improvements compounded upon one another and knew that I’d never stop […]

no excuses

Ya, you heard me…I’ll take a little bit extra. Most of you may be thinking food right? Nope, I’m talking about some extra responsibility. I landed a job interview on Monday with a company that I am extremely excited to work for. I was hired a whole 6 minutes into the conversation. It is by […]


My Son Sees Dead People

My Son

My son always made fun of the movie “Sixth Sense”. He would look at me and say “Mommy I see dead people”, then break out in his little giggle. I always thought that was funny, seeing as how I CAN see and hear others who have passed, but I would just laugh with him and […]

What qualities our chosen mate should possess? We fumble around from relationship to relationship… trying to find out what works […]

From this […]

Have you ever wondered if you will have a similar fate with the divorce rate being so high? I have always wondered what the secret is to a successful marriage. Well, I believe […]


I recently got this email about the “fast track to business success”, however, if you change the word business to “weight loss and health success” (as you’ll see below), this summarizes exactly what is about to unfold here at the Former Fat Guy Blog. You will find expert authors in the fields of personal training, […]


celebrate success every day

How often do we end our days on a positive note rather than a negative note? I’d like to think it’s more often than not, but the truth is that we seem to be very hard on ourselves for all the things we did wrong in the day. I’d like to have you reverse that […]
