Why would I do this again?

I used to think health and fitness was just working out and eating healthy food until I gained 75 pounds on purpose. This journey gave me a great deal of empathy for what some of my clients go through when they try to lose weight.

Over the next 8 months, many things will happen that I cannot anticipate. But the one thing that is guaranteed is that I am going to gain 60 pounds in four months! What I hope also happens is that I lose 60 pounds in the following four months, but you never know. I am ten years older now than when I did my first Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit journey.

I invite you to follow along as I go on this journey from Fit 2 Fat 2 Forty. It will be emotional, entertaining, and inspirational.

What’s The PLAN?

Aug 27


This is when the journey begins. I will stop exercising and eat a standard American diet.

Dec 27


I turn 40! By this date I plan to have gained 60 pounds! This is when I will be at my heaviest.

Jan 04


The Weight Loss Begins! I invite ALL OF YOU to join me as I lose the weight again.



The last day of the journey! I will be celebrating a healthier me along with the thousands of you who participate!

Watch the Journey!
