About Me

About me:

about meIf I could describe myself in one word it would be complicated. There are many dimensions to me and most of them I’m trying to understand and find myself. I don’t expect you to understand me out the box, nor do I expect you to try and figure me out from the start. I haven’t even accomplished that myself yet.

I’ve been through more than you can probably imagine, so before you start to judge me, wait until you try to understand me. I have a reason behind every action/word I do or speak .

I wear my heart on my sleeve a little too much at times.
I love being with friends & family.
I don’t need liquor to have a good time.
I believe everything happens for a reason. (although this is a hard one)
I love meeting new people.
I’m not even close to perfect.
I’m very strongly opinionated but most of the time I bite my tongue.
I hate being lied too.
I hate being ignored.
I’m really not that funny, but laugh at my own jokes .
My favorite color is green. (green eyes are the best)
I love to laugh & love to smile.
I am a VERY honest person.
I usually say whatever is on my mind.
I treat others as I want to be treated and tend to go the extra mile at times.

The TooBIG.net Blog is well known around the Detroit area People call me TB, TooBIG, BIG, Jess, and a lot of other stuff…lol But I mainly go by TooBIG. I work for an IT Company.  ( 9 years now) I’m having a blast doing it. The best job anyone could ask for. I currently live in Fraser, MI with my wife Amy & Daughters Shelby almost 4yrs  & Alivia almost 1 year. Amy’s my rock and one of gods greatest gifts. She is my true soul mate. My girls our my world. They’re the real reason this journey is taking place.  I’m a big guy but I’m a good guy and there’s not too many like me out there.  I have the best family someone can ask for. My Mom, Dad & Grandma Lena have molded me into the man I am today and I’m very proud of the job they’ve done. I lost my hero (my Dad) Feb 5th, 2008 to a 13 month battle with pancreatic cancer and that’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with.

I’ve been blogging since 2002 and I have tried it all as far as a diet. This time. This time it’s my turn to finally get it right and share it all with you. The struggle, the crying, the bleeding, the sweating, the love, the NSV (non scale victories) The gains and most importantly the pounds dropped.

I’ve recently took a break from blogging to pursue my weight loss journey away from the limelight and was only going to come back when I was ready and had proven to myself that I could have success and lost a significant amount. I honestly didn’t feel I could really contribute to the social world as far as weight loss was going or really be an inspiration to others if I wasn’t practicing what I was preaching.

I reached out to a friend of mine from high school who is a personal trainer and has opened his own gym and he offered to help save my life, I’ve turned to a #NSNG (no sugar no grains) approach in my lifestyle.

I want to thank all of you that have been with me from the beginning and those of you that have just come aboard.

I’m finally living by my own quote

Stop Making Life The Excuse, Make Life The Reason

I’m back
