You need to tell us what's going on!

Jul 13, 2019

Description:

I’m connected to a lot of people. It’s what makes this community great.  I’ve learned a lot through our connections and I want to share some of that with you. 

For the most part I can’t tell your gender, your age, your race, political affiliation or sexual preference.  I have a hard time remembering names.  The amount of messages that we exchange task my brain.  I read as much as I can and take it all in.  There are many names I see repeatedly and slowly a stronger connection is made. By that point, we’ve connected and none of the above matters to me because we have shared life experiences that bind us.  I consider us friends even if we’ve never met. 

I do however remember situations and stories. At times I have a hard time connecting them back to the author but they do often hit me.  With over 100k connections - no matter what’s going on I am connected to someone who’s living it. 

 

Mass shootings - some of you have been there. 

Political Rallies - you’ve been there - on both sides.

Protests, yup....

Natural disasters: hurricanes, tornados, flooding, fires - someone from this community has been there. 

Birth of a child - loss of a child.  Loss of a sibling, parent, close friend and spouse you’ve been there. 

Medical Ailments, disabilities, financial trouble, drugs, alcohol issues.  Someone here is living that right now.  

Day one on this journey, making goal, lifetime. -10, -25 -50 -100 -150 -200 someone I’m connected to has been there. +5, +10, +50, +100 same thing.  

 

This is what binds us. We share in the celebration and we share in the pain. We find others who can relate and we laugh together and we cry together.  When we find those who laugh and cry along side of us, we connect.  When we connect, we continue working on our shared goals.

I woke this morning to a devastating message in one of my inboxes.  All I had to do was read it and reply.  I was frozen. Speechless. I can’t even imagine and again, my role is to simply support from 1500 miles away.  They are the one who need the strength to live through it.  

I share this to remind you, no matter what’s going on, someone in this community can relate.  To find them you must summons the courage to share. When you do, you can connect.  That’s what makes this world great.  None of us are so unique that we need to walk alone. 

I’m truly honored to walk with you as you search for those who can carry you better than I.

SMSgt Michael "FatDag' Daggett's Military Retirement Ceremony

Jul 1, 2019 01:03:40

Description:

Thank You!

General Clark, Major Kipp, Chief Snyder, MSgt Sweet, Lt. Col Geary and the entire JFHQ staff, thank you for making today’s ceremony possible.

I’ve been to many retirements and I often hear a lot of people say, “I promised myself I wouldn’t cry”.  Well I’ll tell you right now, that’s BS.. I’m warning you now, I’m going to cry.  So if it looks like I’m reading this - I am. I did that for your benefit.  

To keep the emotions in check by reading words I’ve now read over and over again a few dozen times. This collection of words - arranged in this order are now familiar to me, so it should help limit the emotional release that comes from digging into the memory banks on the spot.  This prevents me from ad libbing as much and thus carrying on for 2 hours.  Your Time is valuable and I want to be respectful that. 

Before we get too far into this - It’s important to recognize that I did not arrive on this stage today alone. This was not my doing, this was a collective effort of everyone in my life so, naturally there are so many people to thank.  

I know better than to call you out by name because every single one of you have had an impact on my life, so it would only be fitting to go seat by seat to say thanks, but clearly, none of us want that.  

The fact that you are listening to me right now,  be it in person, or via the web, tells me all I need to know.  Somewhere in our individual lives, our paths crossed and we connected.  We stayed connected and therefore you helped shape my life.  

You found value in our friendship and thus continued to honor our relationship with the Gift of Time - Rick Warren says it best when he says “ The greatest gift you can offer someone is your time.” - So, with all of my heart, Thank you for being here! Thank you for taking time from your schedule and giving it to me and my family on this special day.

I believe the 2nd greatest gift you can give me -  is money, more on that later.

I want to thank our God for the guidance and love that has enabled me to be here fulfilling my mission.  More than once I’ve found evidence of his presence sprinkled into my life. When I thought there was nowhere else to turn, I looked up and a path always presented itself.  

Regardless of your spiritual belief, there is a higher power guiding us all, call it source energy, call it synchronicity, or even coincidence -  call it what you want, but I encourage you to listen to that intuition, follow the lead and be open to whatever opportunities are presented before you. There is always a path.  

5 years ago, my 5 year plan had NONE of this on it.  I’ve been tapped on the shoulder for a new mission of service because there’s more work to be done, I’ve listened and found my place for my service.  That’s why we are here.

This ceremony that brings us all together today is only possible because of the rest of you. I figure everyone else here fits into at least one of three categories. So I’ll take a moment to give detailed thanks to each and every one of you collectively. 

 

First, My Immediate Family

This journey for all of us starts at Birth - or conception, Depending on which side of the room you’re sitting on - I know what you’re thinking though - Oh boy, it’s gonna be one of those stories, well,  It’s important for you to know how I arrived here, because it gives you the insight into my DNA.  

I didn’t just “decided” to join the military 27 years ago. No, that decision was made for me by a Senior Chief and his bride in the heat of the moment when they decided that a second child might be a fair trade for 2 minutes of extra curricular activity right after a long Navy deployment of sea duty.  The hearts of two incredibly loving patriots combined to form a third, or technically in my case, the fourth.  My Dad Deployed a lot.

I was born on a Navy Base in Charleston, S.C., rightfully so, they tore it down shortly after I was born, but anyway, I was raised in the comfort of the Military Lifestyle and with the Core Values of: Integrity, Service, and Excellence. 

Regardless of the verbiage actually adopted by each branch of service, these words ring true for anyone who has ever worn the uniform in defense of this nation.  My Parents honored that commitment and through all the deployments and personal sacrifice their 23 year career presented, they did well.

So, to my Mom and Dad - Thank You, this is what your sacrifice, hard work, and love has produced.  I owe much of this to the foundation you’ve provided and I’m truly grateful that you are here to celebrate our mutual success! - I love you!

To My Older Brother, USAF, CMSgt (Retired) Steve Daggett, I followed your lead to navigate the lives we were destined for.  I’m glad you were the first to disappoint Dad by Joining the World’s Greatest Air Force - I didn’t want to be the one to break his heart but, there was just no way I could join the Navy - So thank you for leading boldly into the Wild Blue Yonder and climbing high into the sun.  

You provided the framework, roadmap and some bread crumbs along the way.  I’m pretty sure I out ranked you most of our careers, well, that is until until you demonstrated superior intellect and were aptly promoted to highest enlisted rank, representing the Top1% of our Military.  

I am so proud of you, I’ve always been proud of you!  I’ve looked up to you every step of the way.  Your mentorship helped me get here, so yes, you own a piece of this stage with me as well. 

Congrats to you on your loving family, your amazing career, your retirement and thank you for riding with mom and dad in the car for 15 hours just to be here. It makes total sense that you’ve decided to just fly home alone though. I get it, I’m sorry.

My younger brother Chris who is Serving his community at home as a Sergeant for the Kittery, Maine Police Department. I’m proud of you too.  Though, had you scored a little higher on the ASVAB (That’s the Military Entrance Exam), you might have qualified for the Army, but none the less, I understand that your calling to service was to Protect those who can not protect themselves and create a safe environment for the members of your community.    

You and your family should be proud for all that you’ve accomplished together and building on the foundation our parents provided and continuing to put your life on the line by serving in your own way.  When I first met you, you were immediately my younger brother, but it didn’t take long for you to be my friend.

To My In-Laws, USAF, TSgt (Retired) Tom Roberge and his wife Doris - On the few occasions I actually thought about my retirement ceremony, I had always envisioned that You and Tom would both be here to celebrate with us.  I never saw it any other way.  

So, it's difficult now to put into words how I’m feeling, because it wasn’t supposed to be this way and these unfamiliar feelings are all so new, and still very painful.  I know we agree however, that he’s here watching this whole thing and likely standing at attention with a sharp salute.  At Ease Tom!

Doris - Your strength, is admirable, and your service to our nation as a Military Spouse and as a caregiver during his battle with Cancer are qualities you’ve passed on to your daughter.  She’s the best of both of you. You two have done incredible work as parents.  I’m incredibly fortunate to have all of you in my life.  You trusted me with a piece of your daughter’s heart and in addition you've given me a piece of yours as well.  I promised the both of you, I would love her forever, that I would honor and cherish her, until death do us part, and following your lead -  I renew that commitment daily. 

The rest of the family, be it by blood or by marriage, being able to count on you as family means a great deal to me.   Thank you for being here!

The next two people are my heart and soul and I couldn’t possible limit myself to words on paper.  So at this point, I’m just going to speak from the heart.

My High School Sweetheart Janine  - I love you!

My Daughter Megan - I love you!

 

Next: To Those I call my Military Family - My brothers and Sisters in Arms:

If you are currently wearing, or have ever worn, the camouflage threads that protect you as you defend our nation - you are my hero. Whether it be a single day, or 30+ years, the mental commitment is the same.  What you signed up to do, is noble and there isn’t a citizen, whether born here, or naturalized who doesn’t appreciate the promise and sacrifice you’ve made to make this country the greatest.

You too have voluntarily raised your hand in defense of this nation, against all enemies both foreign and domestic, you’ve guaranteed your oath by offering your life as collateral so that you could preserve the freedom this nation was founded upon.

The Flag behind me, and the ones presented today stand proud as a symbol of our Nation and fly freely because of your actions.  

Don’t for a single second forget that there are evil people out there willing to trade their lives to ruin ours.  We are trained, we are ready, and dammit, on our watch, this is simply not going to happen!  

Few of us understand what that truly means and I’m telling you now - I get it and I thank you for your service.  It was an honor to serve with you.  As I take off this uniform for the last time, I put my Fatih and trust in your ability to tuck this nation in safely, every single night.

 

The rest of you - I consider My Wingman Family.

This is where my life has taken the greatest turns and yielded the greatest impact.  You bring to my life diversity.  Up until the point where you entered my life, I’d only ever known what my family held onto as truths and what my military family was permitted to share as unclassified discussions during the work day.  

Your collective wisdom has been bestowed upon me and I want you to know I’ve taken something from all of you.  

If you spent your whole life with only those who raised you, and those who look like you, talk like you, and think like you, then there’s a good chance you’re going to miss the amazing souls who fill this room. 

It’s our combined experience that contributes to our great country well beyond the calling to take up arms and wear a military uniform.  You make this country great, and most definitely worth defending.  

You challenged me to think differently, see differently, act differently all while loving equally and unconditionally.  You’ve gotten me through some incredibly difficult times and I can truly say the strength in numbers, through diversity of thought, belief, race, gender and ethnicity have given me tools to tackle any scenario masterfully. 

I’m very well equipped for the future, any future.  We call our land the melting pot and it’s true because your heart has melted mine and I consider us one.  I truly wish to thank each and every one of you in person over the next few hours.  Some of you came from down the hall, some are watching online while others had the opportunity to travel in just to be here. I sincerely appreciate every bit of it.   

 

What’s next for me:

 

Folds of Honor:  

This chapter began to take shape back in 2007.  I was flying all around the country working for National Guard Bureau.  December 4th, I flew 8 flights in one day - I was trying to reach executive platinum status with American Airlines. I left San Antonio early in the morning and flew SAT-DFW-OKC-DFW-TUL-DFW-AUS-DFW-SAT - it was the Tulsa - Dallas flight that altered the course of my life forever.  

My eyes were exposed to the other side of war.  I learned about taking care of others through the Folds of Honor Mission and quickly volunteered my free time to Honor The Sacrifice and Educate the Legacy of our nation’s most deserving heroes.  Lifting up others easily rewarded me internally, more so than I had ever experienced. 

Fast Forward to 2009 - Militarily, I applied for and was selected to be the State Recruiting and Retention Superintendent here in Indiana. With that responsibility, I learned that one of the areas I was going to be responsible for was recruiting TACP Airmen.  

These are some of the most elite battle field airmen we have in the Air Force.  I quickly learned of SSgt Jacob Frazier.  Jake was a Guardsman from Illinois and was the first TACP our nation has ever lost in combat.  Jake gave his life on 29 March 2003 during Operation Enduring Freedom.  There are literally thousands more like Jake who have given their life for our freedom, thus never having the chance to stand on this stage like I am today.  

Newly exposed to the voids left behind, I wanted to personally honor the sacrifice Jake made on our behalf.  For the past 9 years every single day, I’ve worn this bracelet bearing his name - with honor.  Often, I leaned on Jake as a constant reminder as I looked into the eyes of the parents of my new recruits. 

I need to confidently re-assure them that although this job is very dangerous, no matter what  - this brotherhood for which they were about to enter, would never leave them behind on the field of battle.   

There have been many times I’ve confided in Jake, asked for guidance and even taken him for a run, on the days I didn’t want to, but knew he’d enjoy the fresh air.  Together we have arrived here today, at our retirement.  Rest in Peace Jake, this is just as much your day as it is mine. I’m taking this bracelet off now so that you too can enjoy the benefits of a job well done.

I love People and taking care of our military families is my passion. It’s a mission I continue today and I’m proud to report that this year alone, The Folds of Honor will award $25 million dollars in scholarships to families across the nation.  As the Indiana Chapter President, last year we’ve awarded 44 Indiana families scholarships totaling a $218k, and our goal this year, is to raise $500k for disbursement locally in 2020. 

 

Operation FatDag

 

In addition to The Folds of Honor, I learned of another way to give back.  

The DoD admits that 7.8% of our Active Force is overweight.  However in the Guard and Reserve components it’s dangerously higher.  According to the Obesity Journal, it’s estimated that obesity in the military service is rapidly approaching the civilian estimates indicating roughly 1/3 of our nation battles obesity.   It’s the #1 Retention Issue facing our military, and on the other end of the equation, 31% of the youth today are disqualified for military service. It’s a story I know all too well.

For 20 of my 27 years, I was significantly overweight.  I became broken. Mentally I had checked out, my honorable service to this country was on the line and failed fitness test, after failed fitness test, meant, rightfully so, my discharge was imminent.  

My departure would not have been the joyous occasion that it is today.  I was scared and needed help.  I sent an email to about a dozen of my closest friends. I poured my heart out - I begged and pleaded for help, I needed to get my weight under control, my career, my livelihood depended upon it.  

The one response I received that had the most impact came from my Wingman.  He simply asked what the issue was and basically hung up the phone before providing a solution.  The next day I woke to an email from him that read - Good Morning Mike, 68 Days til your next fitness test - go make it a good day. - The next day, Good Morning Mike day 67, go get it..  Good Morning Mike, 66, 65, 64 every single day for 68 days he reminded me that I needed to prioritize my own needs first, before I attempted anything else for the day.  

It’s a lesson that has stuck with me today.  Many of you have heard this story before, but what you may not have realized is that my Truest Wingman is Standing Right here with me on this Stage.  Major Kipp - thank you for walking with me, For carrying me through a dark period of my life, for never leaving me behind and for teaching me that when you summons the courage to ask for help, there will be someone to answer the call.

Many weekends, I’ve traveled the nation speaking out about the National Security Crisis brewing within our ranks.  It became quickly apparent that there is a greater need for my time, energy and talent in order to defend those, who defend us.  

I learned that I needed to hand the flag off to my brothers and sisters and take on this new challenge.  I founded and was granted tax exemption from the IRS for my own Non-Profit Charity aimed to care for actively service members who’s careers mirror mine.  I want to be the one that answers the call, just like my wingman did for me.  

While my next chapter in life starts to take shape, there are a lot of details I am not permitted to share at the moment, but what I can tell you is I’m armed with Passion. I have a team of wingmen and I’m not going to rest until that mission is complete as well.

I’m working a special project as an unpaid Intern for WW in NYC.  WW is determined to bring a wellness solution to every body and without giving anything away, there isn’t a single person on this planet who is more poised to make a difference right now in our history than me.  

While there are over 2 million military members actively serving, My collective life experience to date, makes me uniquely qualified to take this giant leap into the future.  Staring fear directly in the face, I’m going for it.  

My position here has been advertised and there are many talented people to take my place - I’ve recognized if I don’t step forward, there isn’t anyone ready to carry forth this new mission.

So here we are, at the beginning, and It’s time to close out my military service, so that I can leverage that experience and continue to fight for our freedom. 

 

I wish you all well - and thank you again for believing in me!

FatDag - Chapter 2

Jun 10, 2019

Description:

I promised you an update by 6/10 so here goes. It’s a big one. 

Other than a day here and there for out-processing. I’m officially done wearing the military uniform. Preparing for this day has not been easy.  The uniform is much more than some camouflage fabric sewn together and dressed with boots. It’s the fabric of our nation and serves to protect the Flag for which we stand. It’s very much a part of my identity - think Superman, without a cape, Spider-Man without a web, Captain America without his shield. Yet, in no way do I feel like a super hero - but when I’m wearing the Military Uniform I am granted super powers. 

The collective energy of a grateful nation and the last breaths of those who have gone before us provides the heart and soul to anyone who wears the uniform when fighting for freedom. It’s a feeling you can only experience by raising your right hand and agreeing to give your life for a greater cause. To support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic is a “blank check” kind of promise and I swore to God, asking for help, as I made that initial promise back on July 7th, 1992. 

To now, no longer have the direct responsibility of that Oath is strange.  The seemingly joyous occasion of my military retirement brings about mixed emotions.  I’m very proud of my service. I trust fully those who volunteer for this enormous responsibility going forward, Yet a piece of my identity is now lost. I’ve been Airman Daggett for 27 of my 46 years and waking up again as Mike will take some getting used to. Trying to re-invent yourself in the middle of your life, is something I wasn’t fully prepared for. 

You know the story - I almost lost it all due to failed fitness tests. I came here 3 years ago crying for help.  Without hesitation you answered the call. You were more than the heart and soul of a grateful nation. You answered the call as a peer and a friend.  You answered the call unconditionally as family and that made you my Wingman. Together we fought hand in hand against a strong enemy.  I won my internal battle, like many of you have, but we continue to fight the bigger war because that’s what’s been asked of us. It’s a global battle we fight together as individuals.

The DoD admits that 7.8% of the 2 million Uniformed Military members are losing their internal battle. That’s 156,000 thousand members, but I’m afraid these numbers are conservative. With 39.8% of the US Population fighting this fight, and 31% of otherwise qualified potential recruits ineligible for military service, it won’t be long until our ability to defend our nation is severely degraded. The National Security Crisis at our doorstep is The Obesity Epidemic. 

I’ve openly shared my vision for a healthier Force. I’ve launched a non-profit organization and recruited an amazing team.  I’ve talked in front of thousands of military members who have joined the fight. I’ve wanted nothing more than to give back to a community that saved my life. It gives me great pleasure to announce that on 6/10 I start a 2 month internship at WW in NYC to lend my experience, time and talent to the World’s leader in wellness to put forth an actionable solution. The Air Force has agreed to release me early, WW has accepted the offer and it’s now time to fight!  This is Day one, I don’t know where this ends, but I do know it started right here, simply because you said you believed in me and walked with me down the path to wellness. 

I march forward not as an individual , but as a representative of all that we’ve done here. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to change the world! 🇺🇸🦅❤️ 

I’m gonna be just fine!

May 23, 2019

Description:

I just left my doctors office for my annual physical.  We didn’t discuss my weight as a contributing factor for any of my ailments. We actually talked about actual treatments BESIDES the dismissive “lose 20lbs”.  He drew blood, checked me from head to toe and a little more 🥺.  It was a thorough visit!

I’m a lifetime member, I made goal in 2016.  In the past 8 months or so my life has been crazy. We talked about all of it.  I told him everything.  He checked my records, my heart, eyes, ears, lungs, Blood Pressure and checked my weight.  He didn’t say a word.  We talked about my strength training routine and how it’s added muscle. I told him I wanted to learn to eat better and asked for a consult to a nutritionist. Sure - I can control my weight with willpower when life is “normal” but I want to learn to really eat better naturally. It’s been my goal, ever since making goal. Given my medical history he linked the nutrition consult to obesity.  I’m so relieved. This is exciting because I’m at a point in my wellness journey where I will actually listen to a nutritionist.  I may not have a couple years ago.  I left without a single prescription, just some lifestyle and wellness adjustments!

I share because, every so often I get reminded from this community that I’ve gained weight since making goal 2+ years ago. I know that. I share it openly. I know why. My doctor knows why and we’re good with it. I just figured I’d put the rest of your minds at ease in case you felt the need to remind me again 😂.

Truly - I’m good. I have a very good relationship with my doctor and I’m thrilled to still be connected to an amazing group of wingmen!

I snapped this photo on the way home to compare it to a point in my life when I didn’t care.. Yeah... Doc is right... I’m gonna be just fine!

WYOOPSEP

May 17, 2019

Description:

 

The reason I joined WW was because I ate too much BBQ sauce! - There I said it!

 

I used to say, just the opposite actually ~ “I didn’t join WW because of BBQ sauce” but in reality I was kidding myself.  It WAS the BBQ sauce, and the small handful of M&Ms.  It was the last couple fries from my wife’s plate. It was the 2 cookies in the break room, the small bag of chips, the extra bottle of beer, glass of wine, it was the 3 Hershey’s kisses on the secretary’s desk. It was ALL of those things that in essence were “Untracked” because I rounded them down to Zero in my mind.

 

This meal above can be Zero Points or 11 Points depending on how you eat it.  Once in a great while, it likely won’t matter which one it is. However the more often you have it, the more the data matters.

 

If you started the day with untracked coffee creamer, you’re now quickly approaching double your allotted points for the day - but the app shows a 🔵“Great Job”.  The danger that arises from “being on plan - and not getting the results” leads to quitting frustrated.

 

The difference between “Weight loss mode” and “Maintenance” is somewhere between 2-6 points a day depending on how accurate your tracking is.   So I track it all so that I have an accurate picture of what I’m eating. Then and only then can I learn to make adjustments to hit the goals I have set for myself.

I root for People!

Apr 15, 2019

Description:

I root for people.  I want to see you win! I want you to be incredibly successful.  I’m not digging into your past, I’m simply accepting you as you are today, and I want you to go after it and win!

I’ve made mistakes in my life.  I’ve done stupid things, I’ve learned from them and as a result I’m a different person today than the younger version of me who wasn’t perfect either. It’s quite possible, you’re reading this and willing to admit you aren’t perfect either. I’m still rooting for you just the same. However, If you are not inspired by Tiger Woods’ 5th Green Jacket, then I simply ask you to allow your heart to see the human side of this victory. See it in the eyes of humanity, as if it were your brother, your father, your uncle or friend.

As a society, we lift greatness up, and quickly dump it with early signs of trouble.  Those who fall from grace often have lost the very support they have come to rely on, even if done recklessly by their own hands. To rebuild a life, takes courage.  To do it alone takes strength. To do it from a public stage, takes humility and patience.

This display of greatness has nothing to do with golf.  Golf was simply the skill he developed to allow today’s story from Augusta to impact with the greatest reach.  The game allowed him to rise to the national stage so the world could bear witness to one of lifes greatest lessons. This lesson, 14 years in the making, garnered the attention of the world.  Very few details were left private, a whole world of sin had been exposed. The years of internal defeat were largely silent, yet we were still an unwelcomed witness.  Rather than fade away and give up he went to work to rebuild his life.  His life as a father, a son and a friend needed to him to be mentally strong, giving up would have been far more devastating.

The Master’s Victory for Tiger Woods is a celebration of his courage.  It’s a celebration of strength and it took the game of golf for the word to see what mental strength looks like. The most beautiful part of this story, again, is that it isn’t about golf.  You possess the same capability.  He didn’t do a single thing that you could not do.  He simply kept trying with his sights set on a dream, he remained focused towards its accomplishment.

Go follow this leader, set a goal, make a plan, and get to work. Don’t ever give up because no one ever wins from the sidelines.  The dream is out there, just waiting for you to grab it for yourself.

I believe in you!

Own the Weekend!

Apr 3, 2019

Description:

Not all days are equal!

Monday ↘️
Tuesday ↘️
Wednesday ↘️
Thursday ↘️
Friday ↘️
Saturday ↗️
Sunday ↗️

This is one of the more difficult concepts for me to grasp. When I lost my weight, I was hyper focused. The weekends looked like the weekdays, at least in the tracker. As a result, the scale quickly confirmed my effort. I made goal, then lifetime.

I began to experiment with tracking, strength training, and a term I call balance. I’m looking for the perfect combination and my brain believes that a solid effort M-F can accommodate a less than ideal Saturday and Sunday. My thinking is 5 days on, two days off and since 5 > 2 it’s all going to be alright.

The data does not confirm this however. Now I don’t go crazy on the weekends, I’m still accountable to the process, but quite often it’s 2-3 larger meals over the weekend. Nothing like I used to, but none the less a great weekend. I call it balance. I’m more social and enjoying the company and social element that food provides. But as I always do, I analyze the data.

2-3 unchecked meals, can EASILY eliminate any progress that the previous 18 meals provided. It seems like an unfair ratio and that’s where many of us get stuck.

Our brain says “we’re following the plan” and we are, but with simple math, It’s about 85% effort. (Assuming the 18 are solid) Now, 85% is effective, it will move the needle in the direction you want to go. However, since the progress may be slower than the 1-2 pounds a week that WW says we can expect, we tend to give up citing a lack of progress.

Now if the 2-3 unchecked meals, turns into 3-4 by adding Friday night to the mix, then during the week there is another one here and there, you could very easily find yourself in a “plateau” that really isn’t a plateau. Mentally you’re confused because more often than not you’re “on plan” - but the data I see, after about 3 years of daily weighing, is that 85% isn’t why you joined.

Go all in. Give it 100% and see if that provides the results you’re looking for!

The FreeStyle FIX!

Mar 20, 2019 40:11

Description:

This evening our workshop had an amazing discussion that lead to this discovery.  I call it The FreestyleFix!  I'm sharing the video because I want you to get the full effect.

Here is the summary.

Your daily point value is determined based on your age, gender and Current Weight.  As you lose weight, you lose points.  Everyone gets that, we don't like it, but we get it.  Our bodies are smaller, so we need less food.  As we lose points, we are then forced to make lifestyle changes to accommodate the reduction. 

There is no such systematic reduction in the zero points foods.  So if you start off doing well on FS, and then hit a plateau that you can't break, I suspect that it's because the quantity (caloric intake) of your zero points foods hasn't reduced with your smaller body.  

When you first join, you have success because you make the transition to healthier food, even in larger quantities and it works.  As you get smaller, you needs less, but often you actually increase the intake of zero points foods because you are now starting to enjoy them.  

You need to mindfully adjust your intake as you find success.  By how much? Well that's were you have to do the hard work to find what works for you, but now you know you at least have a starting place to look for success!

I believe in you and wish you good Focus!

 

 

On the path to wellness, Judgement is unhealthy!

Mar 19, 2019

Description:

For three years now I’ve shared many details of my journey publicly. The highlights and revaluations I often share here but often spare you from the downs.  I do it for a couple reasons, mostly because a positive attitude is required to win and I don’t want to take that from you. The other reason, is much of it is personal and I simply am not ready to share it. When appropriate and tied to a lesson I freely share for the benefit of others.  

I do however share one piece of my journey regardless of the outcome and that is my weight. It auto tweets, posts to FB and any amateur detective using google could find 174,000 results it in about .061 seconds. I share it freely as part of this process because I treat it as one data point in a much more complex puzzle.  Only I know the full picture of my journey, and even at that there are still pieces I’m missing and will continue to search for. The ups, the downs, the back ups and back downs are well documented and accounted for.  You can only get this much data by not quitting!

I’ve addressed this before but it continues to come up and I feel the lesson is good for the group.  I know many others see my weight data and comment publicly, privately or even internally. It’s entirely your right to do so and please don’t let me stop you, but I’d like to address the associated judgement that from time to time makes it to my ears and my eyes. It’s unhealthy for our community. I’m strong enough to shoulder it, but not everyone is for their respective journey. 

I recognize it so easily because, regrettably, I used to do it as well.  The longer I stay committed to my health and attract others with the same goals I meet some incredible people with inspiring stories.  I have welcomed back people after a complete reboot, completely unaware of the life tragedies they have proudly rebounded from. 

I have seen people considerably overweight and when they say they are down 100+ pounds my initial judgement stands corrected.  They're proud to share their success yet the fear of judgement prevents them from doing so. It limits their ability to pull from the best resource available and that’s a healthy mind, accomplishing a similar goal. 

Your physical appearance and/or scale number has nothing to do with your worth, or the value you bring to this community. Regardless if you love the data or not. Regardless if it’s day one, or year 50 at free lifetime. The value you bring to this community is measured by your willingness to lift others up regardless of where they have fallen from. The value you bring to the world is to do so free from judgement.

I set out recently on a path with a new goal. From time to time some comments appear and remind me that I’m not there, not even close. My goal is to live in a world where we are treated equally without regard to race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation, economic factors or of course our weight. 

I have made goal, that I promise you! I’m just waiting for the internet and the rest of the planet to catch up!

🍏❤️

Hi Mike!

You are an inspiration and I’ve shared your podcasts with my WW group. They love it and have become fans.

Mike, I love what you are doing.

I am concerned that you are slowly gaining your weight back and it worries me. It looks like you’ve gained nearly 40 pounds in the last year. 175-219.

... I understand you’ve had some personal challenges with your father in law’s health. I get that. But a 40 pound gain is quite a bit. At some point, you have to deal with what life throws at you and stay true to your cause. We all do.

I want you so badly to be the beacon of hope for the WW audience. It just seems that you are not practicing what you preach and it saddens me. You are the spokesperson for positive and consistent weight loss and yet you are gaining—nearly half of what you have lost.

No one wants to point out the obvious, “Hey Mike, you advocate health and weight control, and talk about a 92 pound loss, yet you are rapidly gaining weight. How can you inspire others when you are faltering yourself?”. It’s like a preacher being unfaithful. Or Tony Robbins needing Prozac in his morning coffee.

Please don’t take this note harshly. I’m probably saying what a lot of folks are thinking. I remain

A concerned fan,

Name Redacted

 

(MY REPLY)

Good Evening,

Thanks for your note. I truly appreciate it, and it was received in the manner in which you sent it.  Genuine concern.

I'll try to offer an explanation and give you an idea what else is going on. 

In the hunt to reach goal, I developed a 'self-diagnosed' eating disorder.  I was very addicted to losing weight.  It caused me to lose considerable muscle mass as well. I was running 6-8 miles a day, and living off of protein bars, at times eating them as my only food for the day.  I would eat the same things over and over, because it fit into my 'points budget'.  If I ate a little too much, I would lace up the shoes and go for a 5-6 mile run to 'fix it'.  I would skip a meal if it meant I might be able to lose a pound in the morning.  When the family wanted to go to dinner, I'd insist we go to one of two places, so I could 'stay on track'.  My focus was 100% on weight loss and I was 'thinner' but headed down an unhealthy path.  I'm glad I recognized it.

At 175lbs I still had a roll of belly fat that bothered me. However, 175lbs is way too skinny for me. I checked in with my doctor and confirmed that all of my bloodwork was perfect - I'm not taking a single medication, but I never told him about my eating habits.  Socially, I was not happy and food still controlled me because it was tied to the number on the scale.  I had to make a choice, continue to try to lose weight, or figure out how to get healthy. I decided to make some changes to bring sanity to my life. I started referring to that as balance.

I stopped running for distance.  I've been strength training regularly for over 2 years to add muscle to my frame. I'm more muscular now that I have ever been in my entire life.  I run regularly for fitness, not for weight loss. Rather than going out for a long run, I go for speed! I use it as a way to clear my head, I rarely need any music to keep me company, because I enjoy the run.  I began to look at the food I needed, versus what I was getting.  I realized I'm very nutritionally deficient in a lot of areas. I have other 'food issues' that make trying new foods a challenge, yet, I'm working to overcome them. I stopped tracking points altogether because it was forcing me down the wrong side of health.  I began to gain weight.  I love it.  Some of it is clearly muscle, and some of it is clearly pizza.  I suspect that puts me closer to 195-205 as a number that I can live with, but I truly don’t know.  What I do know is that I have a balance in my life that I have never had.  I have a healthy relationship with most food.  I have a healthy relationship with my self-confidence.  I have a great social life.  The freedom I've gained, has given me a total sense of joy that I'd longed for, for a long time.  There are many foods that I no longer crave.  The list of foods that I'm no longer addicted to is long, and most of them can be purchased from a gas station.  I've safely and successfully made significant changes here. The WW program, was instrumental in teaching me the basics and showing me that I'm capable of more than I ever thought possible. 

I wanted and needed more. I've been experimenting with new foods, trying to live a much better life, and have a much better relationship with food than I ever have.  That learning process, coupled with some stress does have me up on the scale and I'm 95% ok with it, because I understand why, and understand more about it than I could ever possibly share.  There are some things I'm still learning, but I'm 100% committed to my overall health.  I have not given up, I have not reverted to my old ways, I'm simply doing the best I can, given all of the circumstances and re-learning a lot of things in the process. I share what I'm learning from time to time, when I think it adds value to our community in a broader sense.

Faltering is not what it is.  I'm at the beginning of a lifelong evolution that has been very public for about 2 years. It's impossible to share every detail, nor am I willing to.  I simply share the positive message of health, balance and wellbeing. I trust that you take the pieces that make sense and write your own success story. To me, that is the ultimate goal and I've hit it and strive to maintain it.  By my calculations, I have another 45+ years on this planet.  That alone is not a number that I could have confidently typed just 2 years ago. 

Thanks again for checking in.  I believe in you and I wish you good focus! 

FatDag

It’s Showtime

Oct 19, 2018

Description:

I’ve taken the stage many times in my life to deliver key messages on various topics. I’ve been the center of attention before, mostly because of the skill, talent or even the title I held. 

In many cases I hated the way I looked as I was preparing my final rehearsal.  Once I got dressed up, I knew I looked the best I could, and that the audience wouldn’t care because I would be distracting them with my message.  My appearance didn’t matter, they weren’t there to hear or see me, they were there to hear my message. My message was always something besides “ME”. 

Today, I embark on a new journey. On Sunday I will address a subset audience at a conference of 10,000 dietitians.  The makeup is industry professionals all focused on the same thing - keeping people healthy and using our food supply as the tool.  I realized for the first time, I’m not speaking as an Industry expert, I’m speaking as the glimmer of hope, and a success story that so many others have just now begun to write. I speaking on behalf of the hundreds of thousands who share my pain. My message is suddenly and simply “ME”.

Slides, graphs and visual aids have no where near the impact that my physical transformation does. Yet the audience on Sunday, has no frame of reference. The starting point for my story is long gone. I worked hard to burry it and make it a distant memory, but I now need to bring it to life, to deliver my message effectively. The pain has to be real again. Pain that I set aside and worked through must now be resurrected. Pain that I have overcome is now forced to be fresh in my mind. I have to re-live my journey in front of a room of strangers, with no expectation that they understand. 

It’s a story that has to be told through photos and sound bites. Even I, at times, forget just how far I’ve come because I’m incredibly proud of where I am. I live in the now.  I worked hard to forget the past.  So as I prepare for this incredible opportunity, my brain wonders.... 

Can I deliver the entire journey in words? Can I make a compelling argument that I truly am proud of what I’ve accomplished? Can I channel the energy from this community and give back? Can I stand on the stage and represent the change that our nation needs?

The number one retention issue in our military currently parallels the #1 medical condition our nation and globe faces. Heart disease, diabetes, and so many other chronic illnesses are directly related to our poor and often deliberate actions.  The result is obesity and it’s time we address it.   Today, we lose more military members to the chow hall line, than we do to foreign conflict.  The numbers are staggering yet often underreported. 

In just a few hours, I’ll huddle into my inner mind to channel these emotions.  Then on Sunday afternoon, whoever is in that room is going to get it from a fire hose, I’m going to hand them the problem and asked for their collective experience to work with me to solve it!

I could not be more honored than to be tapped on the shoulder in this moment. A moment I’ve unknowingly prepared my whole life for. 

If you’re with me, dig deep, write your story, add it to the list of successful outcomes so my entire journey becomes validated!  The solutions exist, we know that, we must continue to prove that. Together we will work with those with the educational background to channel our victories into replicable actions.  

That is why what you’re doing matters. It matters beyond your life, beyond your family and extends across the globe to all generations. 

It’s show time! Let’s Do this!

I wish you Well

Sep 25, 2018

Description:

A quick google search reveals all you could want to know about the rebranding to WW.  I wanted to take just a second to give you my thoughts on the press release many of you have seen or heard. 

Weight Watchers changed my life. At the time I lost my weight I fully believed that. I gave credit to my leader, the meeting room, the Smart Points program, Connect and my Wingmen.  I credited so many of the other tools that I used properly to lose weight.  I lost 91 pounds. Got to GOAL, made lifetime and joined the team as an employee.

I reached a Healthy BMI.  I was warned “you’re too skinny” but I ignored it. I pressed on because I loved the result I was getting from the scale.  The scale controlled me and I tamed it down to 173lbs. 

I began to rely on the foods that I “knew worked”. There were days that I would eat a protein bar for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner AND dessert because I felt that food was “safe” and I was unwilling to deviate from “foods that worked”

I would run 7-8 miles, for no other reason than to see a lower number on the scale the next morning. I did enjoy it, but the sole reason I laced up was for a scale reward. 

Thankfully, I recognized I was heading down a dangerous path. I had a healthy BMI but I wasn’t mentally healthy with my relationship with food or exercise. I started making changes out of necessity. I decreased my running distance and focused on my speed. I would burn a lot less calories, but I felt so much better, more accomplished.  

I gave up protein bars and powders as a meal, and managed to figure out a new balance as freestyle was rolled out. I overate healthier food, and re-introduced some of my favorite foods and that’s when something magical happened. 

I started actually “Feeling better”... not just physically, but mentally as well. It’s hard to describe because I actually did feel good when I reached goal at 173lbs. 

During this transition, I increased my strength training, because I enjoyed the results I was getting from weekly exercise. The health benefit was muscularly visible and motivated me to want more. I set small goals along the way.  I hit them. I modified others. 

I set Goals that were not related directly to the scale and although I still weigh myself daily, it’s a single number in a complex formula called Wellness. I continue to eat healthier, run faster and strength train on MY terms. 

During this transition I’ve witnessed so many other people get to goal. Perhaps lower than they need to in order to satisfy a scale. I’ve seen people get 100000 daily steps simply to declare a victory.  

I started to resent a program I once loved. I felt enslaved to the individual data points.  The dangers I recognized in myself, I started seeing in others. I contemplated more than once resigning as a “leader” - but I loved helping people and knew of a solution. 

I started focusing on my health.  The industry taught me a term called “wellness” and I loved it. I felt healthy, even if the scale says 207.  I loved every bit of my new life, the one I created with the help of so many tools. Some I still use, some I’ve packed away in working order should I need them again. 

When I sat through my “WW Rebranding” meeting, I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to say - “That’s it - I cant buy into this anymore, I quit” instead what I heard and what you’ve read excited me. It’s an opportunity for WW to meet me, where I am now in my journey and I can’t wait for you to see what’s “in-studio” for us all!

It is about being healthier, and you’re the one that gets to determine what that means for your specific journey.  So as we wait for the formal rollout, beyond the press release.  I simply say, I wish you well!

🍏❤️

I'm honored to be your leader!

Sep 19, 2018

Description:

I'm humbled to be called a leader. For the longest time I declined the title, until I found this definition!

This was given to me today and it kinda choked me up. I've read a lot of motivational things. I think I’ve heard most of them, one way or another. This one however, I hadn’t heard before and it hit me hard.

I don’t want you to follow me online for motivation. I don’t want you to be dependent upon me. I don’t want you to feel like “I changed your life”.

I can't get you to Goal. I can't do anything like that for you. I only remind you that it’s possible. I simply believe in you!

You have to do the work.

What I can do is tell you that you have the ability to use whatever tools you need, to tap into your internal strength and reach your goals, that’s when we can celebrate. If I am one of your tools - perfect. If not, perfect! Use whatever it takes, but listening to the podcast won’t make you lose weight. Being in my meeting room doesn’t guarantee your success. It won’t make you healthier. It won’t cross anything off your list of goals.

YOU HAVE TO DO THAT!

When you close your phone, when the podcast ends, you have to enter the real world and make decisions that support your goals while I’m hundreds of miles away, and you ARE!

You have to use YOUR mental strength to change YOUR life and the good news is, you can!

I'm wiling to be your leader because, I believe in you!

I don’t want 6-pack abs!

Sep 1, 2018

Description:

I don’t want 6pack abs!

There I said it. I’m more likely to want a 6 pack of beer than carry a washboard stomach on a 45 year old body. I neglected my body for so long that six pack abs hasn’t ever been the goal and now that I find myself in great shape, it’s still not a goal of mine. 

The doesn’t mean fitness isn’t a priority. It doesn’t mean health and eating properly are being ignored.  It simply means I’ve found peace in my life and I best describe it as balance. 

I have other goals in my life. Since this is a weight loss community, I mostly talk about that here.  If this is the only side of me you follow, you’d think all I do is focus on weight loss. I am however active in a few other unrelated communities. In those communities I rarely talk about health/wellness, unless it contributes to that goal as well. My name isn’t even FatDag there, and many of my friends there don’t even know what “WhysAdvice” means! The point is, I have many goals and I do my best to achieve them all. 

I’ll share just a little.  One of my goals is to stay happily married for another 23+ years. One of my goals is to build our foundation into a $1M valuation (which means we will award 200 scholarship annually). One of my goals is to finish writing the two books I’ve started.  I have a goal to travel the globe as a motivational speaker.  I have a goal to retire from the military in 11 months, and not have to find a (9-5) J.O.B.  I, of course, have my health/wellness goals, personal finance goals, and social goals. I even have goals for my daughter.

I have so many others, but you get the idea.

As I continue to work on these goal, I’ve broken them all down into smaller steps that are more actionable.  As I work on balancing these goals towards completion, I’m always thinking and adjusting. 

This is where the six pack comes in.  Many times the actionable steps to reach one goal, is in direct conflict with the overall result of another goal. Some times I’m working out to get the 6pack, other times I’m handing them out and raising them to toast a fallen hero and their family. 

Some action steps contribute to multiple goals at the same time and when that happens, it’s perfect.  More often than not, I have to decide in an instant what goal is the priority for that moment.  

Example: Telling the marketing director for a major sponsor that “I’d love to try your latest product, however I’m out of points” is only serving one goal!  

Going for a run, and writing a book can not be done simultaneously, by me at least. 

I keep myself on track by always adjusting, always evaluating and I’m getting much better at planning (another goal born out of necessity) 

There was a period of time when 99% of my focus and attention went towards my weight loss goal. I achieved what I wanted at that time. During that time, I lost traction on some of my other goals, but that was what I needed to do, I made that decision deliberately. I had to prioritize that goal highest in order to accomplish it!   I checked it off, crossed the finish line as I say, and immediately created a new goal around that notion. 

The point of this whole post, is to bring balance to your life.  Like I have mine. Soon my parents will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, and you bet I’ll have cake. Not because I want it, but because  celebrating with my entire family aligns better with my marriage and social goals and in that moment that will be the priority. The next morning, I’ll likely go for a run!

We Got This!

I have food issues....

May 14, 2018

Description:

Yesterday I shared my weight entries as I have for quite some time now. Thank you all for being great a wingman - your continued support is tremendous. It’s time I share the “rest of the story”

I’ve noticed the upward trend and understand it. Mentally I’m solid. I’m not worried, I’m not stressed, I’m really just trying to find a comfortable long term solution and in that process I’ve become too lax. I see that. I’m correcting it. It’s hard to describe, but truly I’m in a really good place.

There are aspects to my journey that pose challenges that I’m still learning to navigate. Since I share my my weight daily, I felt I had to post it - so that you knew, that I knew.

Hi - my name is Mike - I have food issues. About 95% of the recipes and food pics I see on connect I’m not willing to try. Most everything I eat is plain. I’ve been a picky eater for as long as I can remember. I hunt around a restaurant menu for the 1 or 2 things I’ll actually eat. It’s not often what do I want it’s often what can I tolerate. Usually a steak, maybe a chicken (depending on how it’s prepared). I’m the guy who orders steak at a seafood restaurant and Olive Garden. I don’t do pasta either.

I have texture issues. I don’t do a lot of vegetables- not do I care for seafood, beans and well let’s just say the 200 point list of food is just about useless to me. The only egg I’ll eat is scrambled. A salad for me is lettuce and cucumbers. No dressing. I’ll pick at it, but it will never be a meal for me.

Apples, Bananas, Strawberries, Grapes, Watermelon and oranges are about it from the fruit side.

I’m also not your gym head. I don’t mind working out, but I’m not your 10,000 step a day guy. I like to run, but even then there are days I don’t want to. I do it for the mental clarity, not necessarily the exercise. My strength training has been consistent, but that’s because it’s convenient and I have a standing appointment in my calendar that’s easier to attend than it is to cancel.

I eat real food. I eat real pizza - I like fried chicken - I like white bread. I eat real ice cream and I’m not giving up French fries.

Despite all this I found things that do work for me. I was super determined. I did it. I continue to do it. I made all of that work. I’m still making all that work.

I don’t post photos of my food - mostly because I know the response I’d get if I shared it. Someone would offer a healthy alternative and quite honestly - 90% of the time, I don’t want, nor will I try the healthy alternative.

Social engagements are tough because I’ll usually leave 3/4 of my plate untouched, and often it’s the healthy stuff, or the eloquently prepared fancy stuff.

Misery for me is to be invited over for dinner. There’s a 99% chance I won’t eat whatever you’ve prepared. If you do invite me, I’ll accept if it’s pot luck and I can bring a dish. (Yes that’s likely all I’ll eat) otherwise I’ll suggest we just go out to eat, or decline altogether.

So for a long time I gravitated to the processed foods and cookies, sweets and chips because I did need something to eat. I managed my way to a healthy weight by saying no, not by eating significantly better. There were a few modifications in there, sure, but nothing earth shattering. I was willing to try a few things and a couple have made it into my rotation, but for the most part - I didn’t make modification, I cut out the worst of what I would eat. Soda, Candy, and chips are mostly gone and that accounted for many of my excess calories.

I want to try new things - but am often afraid to. The texture issue, combined with a very active gag reflex makes trying new food stressful. I often look at a plate of food that others rave about and secretly wish I would try it. But I won’t.

I have my go to meals and my routine saves me. Right now I’m just re-adjusting to a new routine, but I’ve got this. That part isn’t an issue. I’m extremely successful - and now I’m just trying to build on that success as things around me change.

Thanks for being here with me!

 

What data points are you using?

May 13, 2018

Description:

I remember being 263lbs and wanting to throat punch my “skinny friends” who, at 206lbs said “I’m so fat”.

I used to think - man if they only knew what fat was.. 206 would be awesome!

I get it now. 

As I pushed most everything aside and gave my entire self to the process, I was able to lose 91lbs. I lived a year and change hovering around 190. It felt amazing.  I tossed my entire wardrobe and replaced it with smaller, nicer threads.  I was invincible. I was laser focused and had a solid routine. 

My life changed. The intense focus I used to maintain my weight, slowly shifted to some of the other priorities in my life. It was a much needed shift and it required a good deal of balance to keep it all going. The scale adjusted right along side me. The life-data reflects my shift.  The data says I’m extremely successful in some new areas, the data shows ups and downs across all segments of my life. If I overlaid the graphs, there would be huge spikes of success that would cover the spikes in my weight entries.  These spikes of success are the result of a shift in focus. It’s a balancing act for sure. 

 

If you judged my entire life solely on my weight entries, you'd be sadly mistaken.  

 

I weigh myself daily. There have been a couple days lately where I haven’t.  Im well aware of the trend, and partially didn’t want to see the data, but more so, didn’t want to share the data to distract you.   

I’m a firm believer in the program. It works, and the last thing I want is for you to doubt it, as a result of my data, not knowing the full story.  The full story is I’m not following the plan the same way I did when I lost the weight. 

Yesterday my scale approached 210. I went to get up from the couch and I could feel my center of gravity had shifted.  The 31in jeans I wear, still button, but I couldn’t wait to come home and take them off. The belt I wear at 32in is on its last notch. My medium shirts are now separated into “medium fits” and “medium kinda fits”.   Instead of grabbing anything from my closet I have to give it a little thought.  The confidence of anything fits and I look awesome is fading.

I now understand what they meant at 206 when they said - “I’m so fat!”  That’s me now. I’m there.  I’m excited that all the hard work, the intense focus and all the things I’ve learned along the way have given me the opportunity to recognize this feeling now. Before, I never recognized it until 260lbs. 

This is an amazing victory in my lifelong journey.  I am transformed! That’s the victory I’m celebrating. I’m getting into a new routine once again, and getting back into the groove of mindful eating, planning and recognizing the effect that over eating has.  I suffer from obesity and forever will manage this, the same way I manage all the things in my life. I pay attention to the spikes in the data that get my attention. I like to workout, but I have to deliberately schedule it. Much of the “healthy food” isn’t my first choice, and some of it has never been a choice. I have to deliberately control my weight through moderation. I know this, and confident that I can apply it. 

The bottom line is this - Tracking, scanning, blue dots and WYOOPSEP are easy. That part isn’t debated.  The data and the science, prove this works, putting it all into practice, is something you have to prove to yourself.

Winning is how you define it!

Apr 29, 2018

Description:

Before I boarded my plane to head to Biloxi, I had my sights set on finishing this 3.1-mile (5k) race in under 23 minutes. I have a personal goal that I'm working towards, I want to break the 20-minute time for a 5k sometime this year, yesterday, however was not that day!

I ended up tied for last at 1hr 17 minutes, though officially the clock time says: 57:29 (because they packed up at 57:29).

The International Tour is about us, it's about the community and making connections that help carry us to goal. Sometimes, making friends is far more important than beating them!

Everyone who started the race, finished the race. In our pack were two people who had never participated in a sanctioned 5k before. YES - They Finished! The total weight loss amongst the group was well over 300lbs of life changing effort!

I think so often we get caught up in the wrong data and that causes us to miss the big picture.

For those who are curious about the data you can look here for the official results

For everyone else - there's Tulsa! See you soon! #wingman

Today my best is to Journal...

Apr 19, 2018

Description:

There were 5 minutes of my day today that were absolutely magical.  Perhaps the best 5 minutes I’ve experienced in a long time – I’m glad I had the opportunity to be present for them.  The rest of the minutes, we jammed packed!

The day started about the same way my days have started lately, multiple alarm clocks to wake me from a deep sleep.  I spring from bed, and rush around trying to check off one thing after another. 

Today was no exception – After my 1.5-hour commute, I arrived to work just 5 minutes before my first meeting with my bosses’ boss.  We went from that meeting, to the next, to the next, to the next, to a phone call, to lunch (YA) to two more meetings, 2 more phone meetings and then back in the car for my 1.5-hour commute home.

I arrived home with 5 minutes to change out of my uniform and get back in the car to head to the High School.  We arrived at the school 5 minute before my daughter’s track meet.    This was the first track meet of the season, so it was important to be there for a number of reasons, without a doubt it was locked into my calendar!

Megan participates in Unified Track – it’s where able bodies students, compete with special needs athletes on the same team.  Her heart pulls her to this event and as I sat in the stands watching her jump for joy as her partner athlete runs around the track to hand of a baton, it brought a tear to my eye.

As my eyes watered watching her excitement, I connected that moment to this one.  Watching her give her heart freely and willingly was magical.  It’s a part of being a parent that validates that she’s been listening as we did our best to raise her.    For this small moment in time, nothing else mattered. 

Then back to reality.  We rushed from the high school to grab a bite to eat, so I could fire up the devices and go live!  My goto zero-point dinner choice was out of Turkey!  So, we drove to another restaurant.    We sat as a family to catch up for the first time today. 

Before the bill arrived, I left in a separate car to beat the 9:30p clock.  It was important that I get home in time to fire up the devices, draft a script, pile through the inbox and deliver a message of hope, belief and inspiration. I arrived home right around 9:10.  Yet, it simply was not enough time to deliver the message I wanted to deliver.

As I fired up the computer it hit me.  I’m committed, but not focused.  As I often tell you, at some point you have to do your best, given the circumstances you’ve been given.  Today I was given a full agenda, and my best, is to simply deliver a text version of everything I wanted to say.  I had to rely on my commitment to bring be back into focus.  As I’ve often encourage you do to, taking the time to pause and write down your thoughts is therapeutic.  It’s calming.  It’s the part of this journey where the focus is solely on you and that sometimes is the best thing you can do for yourself.

OperationFatDag Event Update!

Apr 10, 2018

Description:

I’m headed out today to deliver your words of encouragement to our nation’s military via #OperationFatDag

I started this journey alone and the connect community quickly stepped up to be my Wingman!   It changed the course of my life forever!

Once again I have the honor to speak to “me” before I knew support existed! The group I’m speaking to today are all at a point in their military career where they must change their life in order to preserve it. 

I deliver a message of hope. I tell them they can do it and I tell them they are not alone. I then prove it by delivering the cards and letters you have written to them!

I can see the relief come over them as they read your words and for the first time, they finally understand that we believe in them!  It’s powerful and I can not thank you enough for allowing me to deliver your message to them. 

Episode 182 explains it in much greater detail ❤️🇺🇸

Obesity is a Terrorist

Mar 11, 2018

Description:

When I swore to defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic I had no idea that I would one day use that oath to take on the fight against obesity.   For more than 20 of my 26 year career - I was one of the statistics that you read about about as it relates to obesity in the military.  Yet - I was a Good Airman, well decorated with many accolades that hung from a very snug 46R mess dress.  I made the assumption that I was fit (enough) to fight and I had the medals to prove it.    In all aspects of my career I wanted to be the best I could be.  I've received two national honors because I was driven internally to excel - yet I neglected my health at times with the excuse that I could 'still do my job' and I thought I was doing it well.  The truth was, I was just getting by and did so with fitness for a long time.  As my age and my weight both continued to climb I found myself on the failing end of a PT test.    It was completely embarrassing but it took two more failures for me to realize that I was just one test away from losing it all.  I wanted nothing more than to serve, so I had to change my lifestyle.   I had been successful with Weight Watchers in the past so I gave it one more shot to see if I could save my career.  This time however was different. For once in for all, I wanted to do my absolute best.  I was going all in and not looking back.  I enlisted the help of some key people in my life who kept me focused on my goals.  Through daily communication, I never drifted too far away from the course to fitness.  I kept one simple thought at the top of my mind and daily I asked myself, "How bad do you want it?"  It's a question I easily knew the answer to, but without a constant reminder of what it was I was working towards I had failed previously.  This time, I kept the focus on the prize - An Excellent Score on my Fitness Test.  The PT test that haunted me for years, was my nemesis, and I wanted to defeat it. It was the only blemish on an otherwise stellar career. I wanted to be able to excel on this test, no matter what conditions I faced it in.    There is no secret weapon when it comes to losing weight - "Burn more Calories than you Consume" it's simple math and on paper works out perfectly.  However our society makes it very easy to give in to temptations and suddenly the numbers game alone isn't motivating enough.  I had to figure out "WHY" I wanted to be fit.  It took me some time - but the articles helped drive that point home for me.  I did not want to be represented in those article.  Even though they didn't call me out by name, I knew they were writing about me.  I shamefully feared that others would read what was being reported and immediately identify ME as the subject.    Knowing what I went through to lose 91 pounds and reach an 18% body fat measurement - I'm often reminded that I didn't do anything special.  I just wanted this goal more than anything else.  I needed to remain focused on my new lifestyle until I no longer recognized the old one.  Today - I work hard to reach out to anyone who is struggling the way I used to internally.  A few times a year I have the honor to speak to those who need the motivation to win this battle.  As someone who has lived this life for too long - yet found a way to turn it around - I want them to know they have a Wingman that will walk this journey with them.   Through the course of my transformation of both mind and body I accepted healthy eating and moderate exercise as a new way of life.  I started slow in both areas and built on the foundation that I knew to be true.  Today - when I put on the Air Force uniform, a complete sense of pride resonates inside of me.  It's a feeling that reminds me of the days when I first wore the uniform during basic training.  This is what I've been called to do and I almost gave it all away.  When I eventually retire, I will know that I did the best I could, in all aspects of my career.  I'll know that I retired on my terms and that it's time to pass the torch to the next generation.  As the greatest nation in the world our way of life is worth defending.  Those who serve well into the future need to be fit - that's what the job requires.    

I determine what my goal is!

Mar 8, 2018

Description:

Best $114 I ever spent - because I followed the program. This was 2 years ago tomorrow and I feel better today than I ever have!

It got me thinking - my weight loss was pretty consistent. From 3/8 to 9/20 2016 I lost 91 lbs on the scale - some of it was muscle but most of it was fat.

When I reached goal - I was ecstatic. I bought a whole new wardrobe. I started working more towards my strength training and fitness goals. My weight today ranges pretty consistently between 185-195. I auto post it all over the web! http://dag.fyi/WeightEntries

I’m proud of my data! This is a lifestyle I can agree to. It provides me a real plan that balances all aspect of my life.

When I look back at photos of me making goal, I think I look too thin. I like how I look today so I just keep being me! The wardrobe I purchased back then still fits - because I’ve changed my body composition and I’m not adding in the fat.

In the beginning I was hyper focused on losing weight. I’ve now come to understand that meant I was losing muscle AND fat. As I rebuild my muscle tone, I have a better understanding of the journey, and if I had it to do over again, I’d opt for less cardio, more protein, more food to ensure that the weight loss was FAT loss.

It’s not about the scale - it’s ONE datapoint and if you put all your effort into that one data point - you could be doing more harm than good.

I’m mentally strong. I’m all in. It’s why my scale range now is what I’ve chosen - to satisfy ME, not to satisfy a scale or a program.

I’m at Goal. Because I said so!

Change starts with me!

Mar 2, 2018

Description:

This is on its way to being approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) - and I couldn’t be more proud!

A non-profit is a corporation that is owned by the public and managed by a board. An amazing group of connectors have stepped up to manage this non-profit on your behalf and things are progressing nicely. Our first face to face meeting is at the end of this month in #Indy

Here is an article that helps explain why this is so important:
https://dag.fyi/2CPYXtY

But it goes well beyond military readiness. It’s a societal issue. I’m doing my part in the community I know best, using the connections and channels I have access to. If everyone did the same the communities would overlap and the whole world can be changed.

That’s my vision, and I will not stop until we’ve made the change!

Over the next month or so - I have a series of speaking engagements to have a direct impact. I need your help as well. I often ask for cards/letters of encouragement from you, to a soldier, Airman that is lost. Welcome them with open arms and I will personally deliver your card to them.

Gas Prices versus Scale Weight

Feb 25, 2018

Description:

Your weight is like the price of Gas.

If you stop at the same gas station every single morning, you can look at the price of gas, and get an idea of what the trend is doing.  

However if you try to determine the trend, by charting the price randomly as you drive across the country, the data is largely irrelevant and very confusing.  You will not get an accurate depiction of what is really happening.

There are too many variables to compare one station in Iowa to a station in Maine.  The brands are different, the supply chain is different and even the time of day that you compare them is different.

When it comes to your weight, the same holds true.  Rather than comparing data from different scales at different times of the day pick ONE scale - select a time of day/week/month that you can consistently check in and record that data point.  

Compare the data point only to a data point with the same conditions.

That is how you can determine if your plan is working or not. Everything else is just a distraction. 

In either event, the lower the number, the better we will all be!

I wish you good focus!

I root FOR people, not against them!

Feb 7, 2018

Description:

I root FOR people, I don’t root against them.

I want everyone to win, I want them to find the best version of themselves and ride that success to victory. However, I’m not one of those everyone gets a trophy people. I believe firmly that hard Work should be rewarded and sometimes second place is pretty amazing in it’s own right, plus it’s an opportunity to evaluate the data and try again a little more educated and a lot more motivated.

As I reflect on the Super Bowl between the now World Champion Philadelphia Eagles, and the AFC Champion New England Patriots I learned a lot from watching the game and the ensuing celebration.

Everyone in the game is a person. They each have a story and a family. Outside of their “role” they have real emotions and are no different than you or I. I can empathize with the agony of defeat. It’s not a feeling I wish on anyone.

So - I root for humanity.

As a spectator of the sport, I simply wanted to be entertained and of course would have liked New England to once again find the success they are capable of. This time however, the final prize eluded them, and nothing I could have done from my home would have helped.

Knowing my role helps me stay grounded. The best I can do is root harder. I have zero ability to influence the game beyond that. So when it comes to first and second place, I accepted either outcome.

The coaches have a true opportunity to bring success to the team, but ultimately it’s up to the players to execute when it matters. The coaches and players are people, and I said before, I root for people, so I want them all to perform at their best.

What surprised me though, is the “friendly banter” that arises after most any sports contest. The sheer volume of people rooting for another person’s failure surprises me. It’s an unfamiliar place for me, but as I try to understand it, I step further away from that mindset. As we celebrate diversity, we must accept the fact that we will not all agree. In fact my wife of 23 years and I don’t agree always, yet we respect each other throughout the process. The only person who agrees with me 100% of the time, is me. There have also been plenty of times where I’ve even changed my mind after I agreed with myself. ;)

The point of this however is to seek out the good. To parallel this to weight loss, I want you to win. At best, I can cheer you on. I will root for you and in no way will I ever root against you. I want you to succeed and if along the way we end up strongly disagreeing, I will part ways wishing you success.

I want you to perform at your very best, and in order to win, it doesn’t mean someone else has to fail. For this journey, the trophy is available to all.

So as I explore this mindset deeper, it has me keenly focused on success, looking for the clues and celebrating when we win, comforting if we don’t.  

If your first response is to cheer for failure, you’re doing it wrong!

Advertising versus Listener Supported!

Jan 15, 2018

Description:

You may have heard that, starting with Episode 160, I began accepting the financial support from advertisers.  As I started meeting with marketing firms, production studios, and other industry experts, it didn’t take me long to realize this is the real deal and to enter that market legitimately, it’s going to take some work.  I’m up for the challenge! 

As I presented my plan to each of them, they agreed we have something unique and special here.  The most common question back was “HOW did you get this far on your own?”  My simple response, was “I don’t know, HOW, I just stayed focused on WHY!”

We’ve demonstrated that the show is super successful.  In 10 months, you’ve downloaded 1.5 million episodes.  It’s no wonder advertisers are calling to get their names and products to your ears.  We are an amazing community that is focused and engaged.  It’s my favorite part of this journey.  I made the deliberate decision to accept their support so that I could begin to build the show the way I want to build it - but, I also know sometimes those advertisements are a distraction to our focus

So here is what I’ve done.  Since so many of you have already signed up as Patrons to provide a monthly contribution, I’m turning that support into commercial free episodes first.  The remaining (unfunded) episodes will be released to advertisers.  I think this is the perfect balance as we take WhysAdvice™ to the next level.  The advertisers who have stepped up, are incredible wingmen, as well, providing me the validation that we actually CAN build this.   

Their support, combined with yours, is making this a reality.  I’ll let the community decide the right balance between, sponsored and unsponsored episodes.  I will just focus on bringing you better audio quality, more consistent scheduling, audio/video interviews from real success stories, and engaging social media.  I’m ready to build a team to put this all under one roof! 

I’ve made it fun to make a monthly contribution at Patreon.  You can give yourself a fancy title, such as Wingman, Sergeant, Colonel etc, but note, there can only be ONE President :)   As the number of Patrons grows we can build Squadrons, Wings and Groups!  The sky is the limit, and with your support, we can continue to defend the world against obesity.  

If you’re already a Patron, log in and select the appropriate tier level for your current contribution.   How fun would it be, if this show, generated FOR you, was 100% listener supported.  That somewhat goes against the rules in this industry, but then again I’ve never really done any of this by the rules.  I’ve simply followed my heart.

Are you ready to Enlist? :)

I’m doing it all wrong!

Jan 6, 2018

Description:

I’m doing it all wrong!
And I LOVE it!

I’m a regular guy. I dropped out of college at the request of the dean and joined the military. I have 2 associates degrees, but have little desire to use either of them. Nor do I have the desire to chase a bachelors, but I’ve never stopped learning.

I’d been overweight most of my life, you’ve likely heard the story and have seen the changes I’ve made. I’ve documented it all on FatDag.com in case this is your first introduction to me.

Ever since I made Goal, I’ve wanted to convince anyone out there that re-inventing themselves is doable. My wonderful life, became even more wonderful when I shed the weight and the associated baggage that 91 pounds adds to a tired body and mind.

There was a point early in the journey, when I amassed 8,000 social media followers. A number that caught me off guard. I got caught up in that frenzy and felt the need to “grow it”. I began doing things to deliberately see if I could move the needle towards fame and fortune. It didn’t take me long to realize that was the wrong direction and actually conflicted with my internal desires. So I backed away. It was the best decision I could have ever made. I spent the next 18 months just being me and a big part of me, is this desire to give back.

I’m not a business person. I don’t have a social media strategy. I never look to find out when the best time to post was. I just lived my life and shared the ups and downs with you. I knew you craved a real person, changing their life, to demonstrate to you that you can change yours as well. I know this, because that’s what I needed and that’s exactly how I made goal.

10 months ago - I didn’t know what a podcast was. I’ve spent more time on google trying to learn, than I have in my bed sleeping. I’ve learned enough to know this is bigger than me and larger than any of us could have ever predicted.

So, it gives me a great sense of pride to Welcome you to Chapter 3 of an amazing journey. I met with a full production media company to get some assistance. As we met there were 4 things I insisted on and they are non-negotiable.

The listener is the Priority. 👆 When the dollar is more important than the people, we’ve failed. I must Connect with real people and help them succeed.

 

 

That’s what this is all about. With those guidelines, in place, I can build a team that I can trust. I’m now free to do what I do best and that’s keep us all motivated. In many ways this gives me my life back, and in so many more it gives you yours!

I started 2018 with the vision to take the next step. I had the choice of giving it all up, or figuring it all out. Giving up has never been a strategy. So I’m not wasting any time figuring it all out.

As we begin to work on what’s next, my promise to you is that it only gets better! For 18 months I stayed focused on the community and my need to serve. This time taught me so much more than I could have ever figured out alone.

I fully understand the need and I’m going to deliver on it. I’m asking for your support as a Wingman to take the next step with me. By becoming a patron, we can make the dream a reality for all of us. It’s an uncomfortable ask for me, but I know it’s what needs to be done. While it conflicts with the desire to give back, I’ve learned that by pooling our resources, we can do more together than any of us can do alone. You taught me that, and I’m honored to be here today to give back!

2018 Vision

Dec 31, 2017

Description:

I’ve done all that I can alone, and by alone, I mean a team of amazing listeners, connectors, friends, social media contacts and wingmen. With your support, we launched the WhysAdvice™️ with FatDag Podcast on March 14, 2017 and as of this post (30 Dec 2017) it has reached 1,429,690 total downloads and grows by the minute.

While I didn’t do it alone, much of the back end and Vision to keep it going, I took on by myself. Your support provided the Why and I worked tirelessly to figure out the How.

As I launched a LIVE steam simultaneously on 5 platforms last night, I sat with an overwhelming sense of pride knowing that we were reaching even more people. Since I made Goal, all I wanted to do was convey the belief that losing weight was actually possible. The addition of a 5th stream meant reaching the rest of the world where they were, rather than waiting for them to join the 104,426+ of you following along on the 5 major social media networks, plus Connect.

When Episode 153 ended, I realized - I’m in over my head. The photo captures my excitement, but confirmed that I’ve gone nuts. I’m at a cross roads in this journey and it’s time to make some serious decisions as it relates to the show, but how does one go from here, to there. I’ve already exceeded any expectations, especially since I started with none.

The emails you’ve sent, are incredible. I get more email than I can respond to. My social media is solid, yet all I have time for is skimming and reading. I curate the content that moves me, and I push it back out in the form of a Podcast. I know that alone is not good enough. You want more, you deserve more. I’ve decided that you are worth it.

The demonstration of need drives me. You’ve given me a stage, a taste of the responsibility and all I want to do is walk with you and watch you succeed. As I share in your excitement, I realize there are hundreds more who have yet to find that excitement. It’s my true desire to reach them that prompts this message.

I’ve scheduled a series of meetings the first weeks in January with industry experts. I want to see if we have what it takes to change the world. I need a podcast producer, I need a social media team, I need audio engineers, and an equipment list that I’m not even smart enough to google. I need a dedicated studio so I can record the show during some normal hours, and also so that my family doesn’t have to run and hide as I yell, “5 minutes til showtime”.

I need to fulfill a dream that was handed to me. That dream brings you with me and we search for lost souls and invite them into our world. I’ve never had the opportunity to Dream Big before so it scares me to try it now.

All of this takes a leap of faith. It takes a belief that what I’m doing has value. A value you’ve confirmed and I understand in its current state. There is however an unknown potential. The unknown potential can only be realized if I dare to push beyond what I believe is good enough and just go for it. I did exactly that with my weight loss, and that turned out pretty good.

It’s has always been about the vision and the reach. Everything I’ve done to this point, was added when I said, “If I could reach one more person - if I could save one more life”. It’s time.

Hello 2018, I see you knocking, this is me answering!

Managed Obesity

Dec 28, 2017

Description:

The longer I live as a fit/athletic person suffering from obesity the more I learn about this disease.

It wasn’t until I tried living as a skinny person did I come to have a much better understanding of the true picture. You see, I’ve been an overweight, fluffy, fat, big boned, manly, obese person most of my adult life, and although I’ve shed the pounds, I have not shed the disease.

My name is Mike, and I suffer from obesity!

I’ve never been to medical school, and admittedly I’ve just recently taken an interest in this subject, but I have a lifetime of experience that I am trying to figure out.

As a New Year’s Resolution in 2016 I decided I was tired of being fat and I fixed it. The funny thing is, I made that same resolution in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012... you get the idea. So why was 2016 different for me? I wanted to find out how to convey that mindset adjustment so that others can benefit. I figure out it was “management”.

Since 9/20/2016, I have declared that I won, because I was no longer Fat. I hover in a weight range that keeps me around 18% body fat- a stat that while I can improve, I’m actually quite proud of. I can go run 13 miles with little preparation, or I can run a 5k right at 21 minutes. I workout at least weekly, often times more. I’m a huge success! I can score an “excellent” on my Air Force Fitness Test, any time, and day. I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished but that pride breeds contentment. Contentment gets in the way of wanting to push a little harder, or is it something else?

I’ve found that if I divert all of my energy into getting fit, working out and eating right I can have success. Well, success if you’re strictly judging me as at a fit person who used to be fat. The truth is that other areas of my life started to get neglected. Being a great employee takes focus, being a great friend takes focus, being a great parent and husband all take focus. Any area with great success takes great Focus. With only so much focus to give, I need to find a better balance.

For the month of December my attention was needed in some of the areas that temporarily were second and third place behind “FatDag”. As I tried to keep all of the balls in the air, I realized I just can’t do it all, and therefore a new term has emerged into my vocabulary. “Managed Obesity”.

I quickly learned that, even today, I can and will overeat if I don’t manage my intake. I do not naturally crave the foods that are good for me. I’ve made great improvements, but the introduction of Weight Watchers Freestyle™️ has taught me quite a bit. In a month where my focus was needed elsewhere, my WW plan changed as well. It was the wake up call I needed.

Although I am fit, it is solely because I’ve managed to focus all of my attention towards controlling my behavior.

At the first introduction to Freestyle, months before it was publicly released, I began to sweat. As I looked over the list of Zero Point Foods, very little from the list excited me. As others in the room cheered and applauded, I began to internally unravel. Rather than adjust to the new plan, I secretly protested. I stayed in my routine and ignored the point deficit in my tracker and I couldn’t care less about 180 of the now 200 Zero Point Foods.

I don’t handle change very well, and that’s when I figure out I’m still obese living in a smaller body. My mind and body craves fat, sugar and processed foods. My favorite foods can be ordered by number and delivered through the car window. I’ve found a way to make it all work - yet this freestyle concept was anything but freeing to me!

I’m not mad about the change, I’m quite thankful actually. It’s forced me to look deeper into my journey and get honest with myself. Knowing that at a moments notice it could all unravel at the sight of #5, reminds me that it was the proper management, not a lifestyle adjustment, that made me successful. As long as I took the time to manage my obesity I could keep it from being visibly apparent.

I’m tired of just managing it. I want to naturally live it. Living as a fit, healthy adult is amazingly fun! I don’t ever want to give that up, but I have other goals in my life that I’d like to accomplish as well. Those goals are going to require intense management for awhile. The same intensity I used to lose the weight, can be used in other areas of my life. I’m hopeful that with this new plan, entering 2018, I can move away from managing this full time and into just living it. It’s going to take me adopting some solid eating foundations which will give me more time to manage some of the other areas of my life. If it weren’t for the offering of these foods at zero points they would never have made it onto my plate.

The one thing that I’m confident in, is my ability to prioritize. Regardless of where I focus on improving myself, the common theme is that I am and always will be the priority. It takes a steady balance and by recognizing it, it gives me the Freedom to adapt.

So here goes - FatDag Freestye!

Whatever it takes

Dec 5, 2017

Description:

I’m in a very unfamiliar place at the moment. For the first time in my life, I have a flush of emotions that I can not define, and therefore am unable to resolve. I’m in a good place, a very good place, but the emotion is not excitement. It’s a mixture of fear and pressure combined with confidence and pride.

My father served our nation for 23 years in the United States Navy. I was born at the Weapons Station in Charleston, SC and although the hospital I was born in no longer exists, the patriotism they delivered that day is stronger than ever. I was raised to love this country and the hardworking people who call this land home. The President I was born under - I didn’t vote for, yet that never mattered. What mattered is, as a family, we take care of each other and as a nation, we are a family.

As I navigated my way through grade school, moving every few years - meeting and accepting new people was a practice I became good at. In order to make friends, you had to be a friend. My love for our nation grew right alongside my love for its people.

My first attempt to join the military left me rejected. I vividly remember coming home from the physical, going into my room and laying from one corner to the other, across my bed. My shoes hung off the left side, and face down I drenched my pillow with a river of broken dreams. I remember my mom trying to comfort me, yet nothing she said made it better. I prayed for the opportunity to serve - “I’ll do whatever it takes” and I meant it.

As I attempted to re-invent myself, I quickly learned that a college degree was not in the cards either. After a second consecutive semester making the “Dean’s List”  (no, not that one - the other one) he politely made room on the campus for someone else to fulfill their dreams. My medical enlistment waiver could not have been more a timely lifesaver.

Off I went, into the Wild Blue Yonder! I became whole again. The above and beyond work that my recruiter, MSgt Mona Naragon did to simply give me a chance, forever shaped my life.

As I traveled the globe, I came to realize just how special our piece of the planet truly is. It’s unlike any other place on Earth and it’s worth defending, even if it cost me my life. I became incredibly grateful for the opportunities that were afforded to me by our nation. My initial patriotism grew in intensity - I fully and finally realized what makes our nation so special is its citizens and the men and women who give their all to defend it.

I became a military recruiter.  It was imperative that our way of life be protected, and I took it upon myself to ensure there would always be someone here to preserve our freedom. I processed waiver after waiver and if anyone wanted to join me, I did my best to give them the opportunity. It pained me when I was unable to enlist a patriot who was unqualified to serve. I led the nation in accessions my first year and I continue that successful career today 17 years later. 

My career, our nation, was threatened by an enemy I had failed to identify. Years before, flying into Bosnia, taking on small arms fire, didn’t have the same impact on me as failing my fitness assessment did. I had accepted and calculated that risk, and was I prepared to do what our nation called upon me to do. However, when I failed a series of fitness assessments, I felt like I let my country down. No matter how much I knew it, no matter how hard I tried, there was a missing link in my brain that connected my fitness ability to the mission. I eventually figured it out. I don’t fully grasp how I figured it out, but I know with more clarity than I’ve ever had, I need to deliver this message to leaders and policy makers on behalf of our nation.

When the invitation arrived to deliver my testimony to Washington, DC I accepted without hesitation.  I didn’t fully understand just what I had agreed to do until just moments ago as I began to key these letters together to form words.  Once I landed in our Nation’s Capital, I wanted to spend the day preparing. For the most part, I just considered this to be another opportunity to tell my story.  It’s a story I’ve told a few times to other members of the military who could easily relate to much of what I struggled with.  Speaking to an audience has never bothered me, and in this case, I have a firm grasp of the content.  It’s a story of my life - the details are vivid and I don’t need a script.  I’ve briefed Generals and audiences in excess of 10 thousand.  From a pressure and confidence standpoint, this was sure to be no different.  Nonetheless, I wanted to mentally prepare myself.  

I made my way to the Capitol building - if change is going to happen, it’s going to happen here. I needed to visualize it, and being there was imperative. I’ve seen the building many times before, it has always been a symbol of our country, but as I stood there this time, it looked different.  I truly saw it as the starting point for the change I wish to make happen.  From there, the next stop was the White House.  The beginning and end of the change process would happen within these two buildings.  The fact that I was solely responsible for initiating this change dropped a heavy burden squarely on my shoulders. I’m in a very unique position to advocate for the change I want to see in the world. I confidently feel, there is no one better to deliver this message, at this time.  I’ve been given the stage, I’ve been given the right audience yet I am just the messenger. If I fail to deliver the message properly, there may never be another opportunity like this. Our leaders are busy, if my voice, the collective voice from our community, does not make an impact, another topic will quickly make its way through the change process. It was this realization that brings about a sense of fear and responsiblity I have never experienced before.

Feeling the weight of the word on my shoulders, I headed to Arlington National Cemetery to be amongst the most heroic people I know. I came seeking their strength, courage and guidance. Dressed in only jeans and a tshirt, I was not fully prepared to spend the December afternoon outside.  I entered the sacred ground and without direction headed to Section 60.  I’ve been here a few times so I confidently navigated my way to Major Troy Gilbert’s gravesite.   Major Gilbert inspires me by the way that he led his life, and the way that he raised his family to be the catalyst for change.  If anyone here knew what I was up against, this hero would be the one who is able to guide me.  

The walk to see him was chilly, my intentions were to make a quick appearance, gather my thoughts and head back to the city.  We began to chat, I rambled on and then I stood quietly.  The confusion continued, and Troy offered me a seat, to spend some time really talking it out.  The long periods of silence were only interrupted by my incoherent ramblings.  I visited with him until I had the answers that I needed.  I didn’t realize it, but I was there for a full hour. I fought back the tears as I sat there for a bit and eventually I layed down beside him.  It was extremely peaceful and I was comforted by a blanket of warmth that can only be described as heavenly.  I came seeking this hero's guidance and I did not leave there disappointed.  I exchanged a text message with his family, to thank them for his sacrifice, his guidance and to warn them, that if they get to meet him again before I do, he will likely ask them who I am and why do I just sit there and ramble so much.  

I found my answers. The message is simple.  We have a great nation, we need to take care of each other, we are in this together and we are family.  The best way to preserve our way of life is to ensure that the men and women who dedicate their life, in whole or in part, to her defense are cared for.  This provides the foundational walls for which the rest of our nation can thrive.

I stood, snapped a crisp salute and began my walk back to the entrance.  It wasn’t 10 feet into my return that the temperature caught back up with me.  It was an unmistakable sign that my time spent preparing for this journey had been orchestrated from above. There is no one more qualified nor more prepared to be the messenger for change. My prayers have been answered, I’ve been tapped on the shoulder and it’s time to make a difference. When I begged for the opportunity to serve, I said I would do ‘whatever it takes’.  

I’m doing whatever it takes!

On to Washington

Dec 2, 2017

Description:

As you may have heard - I’m traveling to DC next week to sit in some high level meetings regarding the Obesity crisis affecting our military.

I can not explain how honored I am to be able to take the next step in making a change in the world. From the moment I realized my life was different when I made Goal - I wanted to make sure that everyone knew - making Goal is possible for EVERYONE!

Yes even you!

I’m nervous, I’m swamped, trying to prepare and make sure I simply be me - but I’m a different me than I was before.

I feel like I have one chance to make an impact that is so desperately needed and having that responsibility resting on my shoulders is humbling. It scares me a little..... but...

I’m ready.

Boy am I ready!

The two years we’ve been together here you’ve prepped me for this. The stage you’ve given me has trained me to understand the issue from numerous perspectives.

Two years ago I would have gone into this meeting with just my knowledge. Now - I will walk into the meeting as the voice of 85k people - and represent hundreds of thousands more.

Thank you.

Let’s Do this!

Food is Fuel

Nov 20, 2017

Description:

It started like any other day - it ended like one of my long forgotten days.

I woke up yesterday on Fire and ready to hit the gym for a new workout. I feel incredible and want to take my fitness to the next level.

I just returned from a week long trip feeling so proud of my choices. The scale was even down when I checked in the moment I got back.

Being on the road, being social and driving didn’t break me. The habits and routines that carried me to Goal, carried me through this week of travel flawlessly. I did not have a chance to workout while I was away so, my body craved a good workout. My reward was a new gym!

I had found a new fitness facility that challenged me. The introductory workout left me incredibly sore for 4 days. I loved it! So after being away I wanted to go back and push myself again!

I took to the bags, punching, kicking, left hook - right hook. Side kicks, row boats, squats, speed bag, I gave it my all. I felt like a beast and was so glad to have the stamina and strength to go after some new goals. I WAS A MACHINE!

I hadn’t planned properly though. The workout left me very hungry. When I got home, I didn’t have my typical protein breakfast - I hadn’t restocked from my trip, but I was hungry. My body needed fuel.

What I did next, set off the entire day. I fueled it improperly. We went to breakfast and I chose a meal I hadn’t had in a very long time. I used to eat it daily - so I assumed it would “fill me up”. It didn’t. It set off a chain reaction of me chasing sugar and junk for the entire day in an attempt to fuel me back up.

Every other opportunity to eat that followed, I accepted, trying to fuel the body, and it kept being the wrong fuel so I never felt satisfied. The cycle continued.

When the social calendar collided with the improper plan, I found myself at BWW at 12:00am and left when they started moving the tables around us to clean. I couldn’t get enough fuel yesterday because I never gave me fuel. I was so full last night at 1:30am I literally couldn’t eat another bite - even though I tried.

That didn’t deter me. I woke up - got on my scale and now I’m starting a new day - a lot sore from my workout, but so educated on the need for the proper food and the impact it has on me!

We had a great day - so much fun - I wouldn’t change a thing, because yesterday taught me some important lessons that I need as I go for some new fitness goals. I took good notes! I’m now off to the store for the fuel I need to carry me back to my goal.

If I’m gonna workout like a champ - I have to eat like one!

FatDag is a Noun

May 14, 2017

Description:

Life can be funny sometimes - if you let it!

Yesterday I had one of the best days I've had in a long time. It started with a haircut - meeting one of my amazing leaders, weighing in and then seeing my picture in the WW magazine for the first time and ended with a FB live session I've posted on my website FatDag.com

I decided to have a little fun with the magazine on connect and almost got kicked out of Barnes and Noble for "starting a spontaneous autograph session without permission"! I'm kidding no one said a word, - because we took the photo quickly and ran  ;)  😂



Here's the take away. 

I've withheld my ability to have fun because of my weight for years. It's an internal struggle I've had but I never wanted to call attention to myself because I knew as others would describe the events they would eventually have to say "and then the really fat guy..... said, did, whatever." 

The easiest way to describe me to the police, if it came to that, was by my size first and my actions second. So I held back and tried my best to go unnoticed. My weight had defined me in so many ways to strangers who didn't yet know me. 

I no longer have that hanging over, or on me. I'm "new and improved" and "fat free". I'm enjoying life and now if someone comes up with an adjective to describe me, I can dispute it as subjective. It's a matter of their opinion if I'm ugly, my jokes are lame, my fashion sense is off, my hair is a mess..... all of those are disputable and I get to cast my own vote!

But no matter what, I can no longer be called fat in the derogatory sense, and that has set me free!

I've wanted this for so long and now I'm enjoying every single second of it. I thank you for following along as an amazing #wingman! If you aren't already, I want you to join me at Goal! It's worth the fight to get here, I promise you!

It's a lifestyle change!

May 11, 2017

Description:

There's more to this than just a cup of strawberries. This reflects the lifestyle change we talk so often about.

I like chick fil a. My favorite is the nuggets - not the grilled ones. The real deal. With a Coke, BBQ sauce, fries and ketchup. I would eat them at least once a week and have for many years. It was one thing I was not willing to compromise on.

As I was working the plan this meal became harder and harder to fit into the point allowance.

First I gave up the soda willingly.
Then I went to a small fry willingly.
Then I dropped the ketchup willingly.
Next I switch the fries for a fruit cup.
I then began getting all strawberries.
I dropped the BBQ sauce.

I figured out that what was important to me was the chicken, not all the extras. I have taken this meal from 30+ points to 9. I'm fully in control and made the adjustment gradually and willingly.

Last night after my ww meeting I went once again and it wasn't until I was eating did I realize that my automatic reaction to "next in line please" was the fruit cup, strawberries only and a bottle water. No thank you to sauce ;)

This is the lifestyle part. It happened gradually because I stayed on plan to let the learning process work. If you had told me on day one I HAD to give this meal up - I would have said "not going to do it" - but to learn that I made the adjustment on my own is powerful.

Tracking everything, ketchup included, and not eating points when I was out of points changed my life for the better.

Do you need Normal BMI to be healthy?

May 1, 2017

Description:

I recently went to an Indiana Pacers Basketball game - Look at the Pacers height and weight charts. 

 

 

When I started I was about a foot shorter than most of them. I also weighed more than all but one. I was 263 and 5'11 - I wouldn't have made the team. My BMI was 36.7 Obese.


I thought I wanted to set a goal of 189 but my leader convinced me to not settle for a goal outside of my normal BMI. I now have a normal BMI of 24.4 and I love it. Before I started I didn't think a normal BMI was possible for me. It would leave me too skinny and no "man" has a normal BMI - that's what I kept lying to myself. 


Sure it's not for everyone - but it worked for me and I only realized it because I dared to try. The truth is I didn't know if it would or wouldn't work - I just assumed it wouldn't and that was limiting my potential. 

 

Look at the height and weight of the pacers. In order I've computed their BMI:


27.9 Overweight
23.1 Normal
27.3 Overweight
23.1 Normal
24.6 Normal
30.2 Obese
26.6 Overweight
25.8 Overweight
25.7 Overweight
30.5 Obese
24.9 Normal
23.9 Normal
25.5 Overweight
23.8 Normal
24.3 Normal


7 of them have a normal BMI
2 of them are considered Obese
6 of them are overweight


So can you be healthy without a normal BMI? Of course you can. 


Can you have a normal BMI and still look/feel great? Of course!


Figure out where your body is most happy, but don't stop before you truly are where your body is capable of being!

 

Go Team!

Description:

On the first day that I went to the mail box, there were 17 cards from you guys! That is fantastic and I can not thank you enough.

I plan to use them at an upcoming speaking engagement to demonstrate the power of Love, and to provide a glimpse of Hope.  When I decided this time that I really needed to lose weight - I didn't start with the same level of hope that I found during the process.  That level of hope was cultivated through your support and watching you succeed by not giving up!  You believed in me, before I believed in me! That was extremely powerful and I want to replicate that action.

Next month, as I address a group of our Nation's military,  I want to hand them these cards to give them hope.  They are engaged in a battle for their lives.  They need to lose weight and get fit in order to continue to serve our nation so proudly.  I want to let them know that not only do I believe they can do it,  but you believe it, as well!  

Thank you for helping me carry out this very important task!

If you'd like to provide a card or letter of encouragement - I will personally hand it off to someone who I've come in contact with that is just starting, or needs a pick me up!  We are better together and you continue to prove it!

Getting Focused

Apr 23, 2017

Description:

One of the hardest things we will ever do is change a habit.  Regardless of what that habit is.  In order to call it a habit, that means it's something we do on a regular basis.  Over Eating, Stress Eating, Binge Eating, Smoking, Cursing or all kinds of other things fall into this category.

As we shift our focus to a healthy lifestyle, we need to change a lot of those habits - by staying focused - I mean laser focused - is not easy - but it is critical.

A great friend of mine Chris, just recently introduced me to the Law of Attraction, also referred to as Syncronicity, a term I knew but didn't fully embrace properly.   The law of attraction says whatever you focus on, you attract.  So if you remain positive, positive energy will begin to come your way more often.

It's significantly more detailed than this, but for the sake of brevity I want to give you a tool to help you stay focused, without boring you to death.  Watch how the law of attraction and synchronicity remind you that you are on the right path. A path to a better you!

Look at your weight loss journey.  How many pounds have you lost currently?  What is your first weight goal?  Pick a number.  If you've lost 15lbs use 15.  If your goal is 145 pick 145.   The number isn't as critical as the focus. Find a number that means something to you!

Now that you have that number - concentrate on it.  Begin looking to see how often that number shows up in your life.  A license plate on the car that just drove by you, will end in your number - or begin with your number.   

Your cash register receipt will have a number sequence that will contain your number.  The mileage on your car will have that number.  Your daily steps will reveal that number, It will suddenly appear everywhere as you shift your focus to you.

I want you to focus on what matters most and that is your ultimate happiness as you work to become a better you.  Look all around you for your number and each time you see it, it will be confirmation that you are on the right path.  When it does - tweet it to me, send me an email OnAir@FatDag.com tag me on Facebook, or Connect - I want to share in your journey as well.

Chris and I share the number #23 and have sent these txt's back and forth over the past couple days.   This is just the beginning!

23

 

I wish you good focus!

 

Your Wingman,
