I am a 40 year old gay male living in Branson, Missouri. My partner, Michael, and I have been together for 13 years this July 14th. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats and I have 2 sons from a previous marriage. Being in a relationship for so long, I had grown WAY too comfortable and consequently stopped working to maintain a slim waistline!!

So, September 2008, I started on my weight-loss journey. Since then I have lost about 80 pounds and am working on losing 40 more. I really, really want to be down to 170 by my 41st birthday - which is only about 3 months away. Lots of work to do!

I look to meet other people on here who have similar goals and aspirations. I'm hoping to find others who are driven to get healthy again and who are also looking for some positive motivation and accountability.

If you think you "fit the bill", send me a friend request and together we'll find a way to get past all of the hurdles.
