following: XBrockmanX's own diet
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week

I am 27 years old. I was 420 lbs and my life was going nowhere and I was always depressed. I had no job, no girlfriend, basically no way to support myself. While on the waiting list for bariatric surgery i joined the local Optifast program. This is where my life changed.

I am currently a devote follower of the program and have had a great amount of success. I am really active now, i workout everyday and joined a ball hockey league and play golf every chance i get. And oh yeah i got a job! i am a part-time employee in the produce department at Fortinos. It's nothing special but its a start and a spring board to get me where i really want to go working with computers. i self teach myself on off days.

I went to McMaster University and have completed my English degree.

I co-host a sports talk radio broadcast on Wednesday nights at 6, you can listen online at http://cfmu.mcmaster.ca and follow me on twitter @Homedog_Brock

I have my own place and i am just enjoying life now!

feel free to add me as a buddy!
