I am just an average Joe.  I was an athlete in high school and was in outstanding physical condition throughout my entire time in the US Army.  One day I looked up and was over 300 pounds and suffering from health concerns.  So, I began the same quest that so many other people; to lose weight.  Over the past five years, I have tried just about everything I could get my hands on.  I even lasted 30 days on one of the programs!  But do you know what all the programs had in common?  I failed.  I failed for two reasons.  Reason #1 is they all had crazy rules that had to be followed.  I am NOT a rule follower.  Reason #2, and most important, is I was all alone in the journey.  As soon as the self doubts or minor setbacks occurred, I was done.  Then I found Macroholics!  All of sudden I found myself in a community of people who are on the same path as me.  I found out that food is not evil.  I have learned that I can eat all the yummy stuff I enjoy and still lose weight.  The Macroholics community has re-defined my relationship with food and I will never look back.
