(Excerpt from my website) My name is Franco. In 1999 I was 550 pounds. I had weight loss surgery and lost almost 250. I was under 280 pounds once for about 3 days…. The early 2000’s were amazing for me. I could walk, ride my bike for hours. The most important thing for me was that I could fit in any seat… Including air plane seats and I went to Montana, the Bahamas, Curacao and Disney. It was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I loved not being scared of the world around me. Going to the theater, going to concerts.. hockey games…
In 2006 after a traumatic year, I ended up breaking my foot. That was the clincher. I went from 326lbs where I hovered for a year or two and just started gaining weight. I has been floating around 400 for 2 years…. and now am a little more than that. You’ll see my start weight on January 6th 2014. (It was 411) But here is what is going on….
Don’t read into the name of the site too much. After 4 hours of trying to get something in a fitness direction I decided to use a song title from my favorite singe/song writer, Butch Walker.
So now what? I don’t really know. That’s part of the journey that starts on January 6th. Time to get my ducks in a row.
UPDATE! January 6th 2014. I weighed in at 411 pounds. Check out the blog for more up to date news and babbling.
