I was an Archaeologist living in American Samoa originally from West Virginia. I've been married for 6 1/2 years to a fantastic Samoan woman and we have a 3 year old little boy. We moved back to WV in September of 2011. I am now and Archaeologist working for the state of West Virginia.
I am 6'5" and have weighed as much as 300 lbs. I have been seriously working on living a healthy lifestyle for the last 8 years, but like most people have had my ups and downs. I was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, which explains a lot of my ups and downs over the years. Hopefully with proper medical treatment and the proper amount of rest I have finally developed a lifestyle (proper food choice, exercise, friends, family life..etc) that I can follow in the long term without feeling I am in some way depriving myself.
I got down to 219 lbs before I had another episode of my illness, and over two years my weight went back up to 285 lbs. I have lost over 20lbs in the last 2 months and my goal weight is 215 lbs.
