Designing My Body: My Weight Loss Journey




































At the end of 2013 I was 281 lbs, in pain and unable to move without discomfort. I sweated profusely and feared having a heart attack. I was on the verge of becoming an insulin dependent diabetic by the time I was 49 years old. At the strong recommendation of my doctor, I needed to shed 80 pounds.  I worked hard to slim down in 2013 shedding 27 pounds by changing my eating habits and walking. At some point the weight loss stopped. I realized that I needed guidance and an extra push to help me lose the additional weight and tone my body. I met Cailah Brock Owner/Personal Trainer of Rock Solid Fitness in May of 2014. She was finishing her book about weight loss and healthy living. Cailah and I agreed that she would help me to 'redesign' my body and I would become the Editor of her book. We began working together as client/Editor June 2014. As a result of our connection I began a journey in self-discovery, embraced a healthier lifestyle and grew exponentially. Cailah has become a much sought after motviational speaker and has sinced published her book, Design Your Body: Your Guide to Cutting Through the Fat. She continues to offer expert training to her growing list of clients.


As of September 2015, I have lost at total of 75 pounds. Of those pounds, I lost 48 pounds thanks to a written training plan and Cailah's guidance. Her confidence in my ability to 'design my body' pushed me harder than I have ever pushed myself. Click on the picture of Cailah and me and watch our candid interview.
