I am a software engineer/architect with 20 years experience developing client server windows and web applications. For more information on my profession please visit samjwest.net
I am recently remarried to a fabulous woman who has meant so much to me for her support and encouragement in this process. I have 3 children and 3 dogs which I’m sure are going to do wonders for keeping me young!
I grew up racing motocross and love the sport. My sons and I go riding when we can but it’s not nearly enough.
In the 90’s, I studied Tae Kwon Do for 10 years with Master Kim at Kim’s College of TKD and I hope to eventually return to participating in additional martial arts.
That was the life I had…
In August of 2010, I weighed 390 pounds. One year later, I have lost 100 pounds by simply being smart and eating right. I didn’t excercise or starve myself either. I am halfway on my journey and it dawned on me that I should really share this with others. So, this site is where I will record my progress, dispell a bunch of misconceptions, and hopefully encourage some of you curious enough to venture here to get your life back too!
