Turning 40 and not giving a shit.

When I graduated from high school in 1998, I weighed 215lbs.

I played Varsity Golf and had played Baseball, but I took senior year off, to focus on golf.

I had a scholarship to play college golf, and turned it down to go to school with my friends. Thinking, let’s face it, I’m a good golfer. But I’ll never be pro.

Fast forward to 2000. I’m no longer playing any golf, I’m partying 3 nights a week and putting on weight.

I can still remember the day, I was sitting on the toilet, and realized my belly had lapped over. #dunlap

I weighed in around 225lbs by summer.

That summer I got a job in a factory making air conditioners. Lost 25lbs in the non air conditioned factory and went back to college #ripped. 6’3, 200lbs with a 4-pack.

Then, back to partying I went, finally graduating around 270 lbs.

A few years later I got married and got up to about 300lbs.

I gave zero shits.

I had made it back on the wagon and found my way back to 270lbs again and went on coast mode. We were expecting our second child and I had no motivation.

Then boom, I read a @loseitapp article about how a woman lost over 100lbs without exercise.

Having dropped that 70lbs and finding myself around 200 again, I’m a new man. The 18 year old fresh out of college ready to play some golf. Ready to wrestle one of my boys on the carpet. Ready to take my wife back to the bedroom and ravish her guy is back.

I also quit smoking in June. I was a smoker for 20 years, and now cigarettes gross me out.

I’m excited for World Long Drive to come back to Arizona.

I’m excited to work out.

I’m excited to play with my boys.

And most importantly, I’m excited to help others.

Shoot me a message if you’re struggling, and I’ll respond back with some real advice and honesty.

I turn 40 on Tuesday. And it should be a big deal, but to me the big deal was weighing in at 199 back in August.

While I may be turning 40 physically, mentally I’m back to 17 again.

And I have a new found desire to play golf again.
