I was miserable. I was 263.5 lbs and was facing disciplinary action for multiple fitness assessment failures from the Air Force. I needed to lose weight and wanted to lose weight, but failed the many times that I tried.

I found the support I needed to crush my goals, and lose 91 lbs. I have a healthy Normal BMI and an Excellent Score on my Fitness Assessment. I want to walk you through the mindset needed to accomplish your own personal goals.

I want to be your Wingman!

There were 5 minutes of my day today that were absolutely magical.  Perhaps the best 5 minutes I’ve experienced in a long time – I’m glad I had the opportunity to be present for them.  The rest of the minutes, we jammed packed!

The day started about the same way my days have started lately, multiple alarm clocks to wake me from a deep sleep.  I spring from bed, and rush around trying to check off one thing after another. 

Today was no exception – After my 1.5-hour commute, I arrived to work just 5 minutes before my first meeting with my bosses’ boss.  We went from that meeting, to the next, to the next, to the next, to a phone call, to lunch (YA) to two more meetings, 2 more phone meetings and then back in the car for my 1.5-hour commute home.

I arrived home with 5 minutes to change out of my uniform and get back in the car to head to the High School.  We arrived at the school 5 minute before my daughter’s track meet.    This was the first track meet of the season, so it was important to be there for a number of reasons, without a doubt it was locked into my calendar!

Megan participates in Unified Track – it’s where able bodies students, compete with special needs athletes on the same team.  Her heart pulls her to this event and as I sat in the stands watching her jump for joy as her partner athlete runs around the track to hand of a baton, it brought a tear to my eye.

As my eyes watered watching her excitement, I connected that moment to this one.  Watching her give her heart freely and willingly was magical.  It’s a part of being a parent that validates that she’s been listening as we did our best to raise her.    For this small moment in time, nothing else mattered. 

Then back to reality.  We rushed from the high school to grab a bite to eat, so I could fire up the devices and go live!  My goto zero-point dinner choice was out of Turkey!  So, we drove to another restaurant.    We sat as a family to catch up for the first time today. 

Before the bill arrived, I left in a separate car to beat the 9:30p clock.  It was important that I get home in time to fire up the devices, draft a script, pile through the inbox and deliver a message of hope, belief and inspiration. I arrived home right around 9:10.  Yet, it simply was not enough time to deliver the message I wanted to deliver.

As I fired up the computer it hit me.  I’m committed, but not focused.  As I often tell you, at some point you have to do your best, given the circumstances you’ve been given.  Today I was given a full agenda, and my best, is to simply deliver a text version of everything I wanted to say.  I had to rely on my commitment to bring be back into focus.  As I’ve often encourage you do to, taking the time to pause and write down your thoughts is therapeutic.  It’s calming.  It’s the part of this journey where the focus is solely on you and that sometimes is the best thing you can do for yourself.

I’m headed out today to deliver your words of encouragement to our nation’s military via #OperationFatDag

I started this journey alone and the connect community quickly stepped up to be my Wingman!   It changed the course of my life forever!

Once again I have the honor to speak to “me” before I knew support existed! The group I’m speaking to today are all at a point in their military career where they must change their life in order to preserve it. 

I deliver a message of hope. I tell them they can do it and I tell them they are not alone. I then prove it by delivering the cards and letters you have written to them!

I can see the relief come over them as they read your words and for the first time, they finally understand that we believe in them!  It’s powerful and I can not thank you enough for allowing me to deliver your message to them. 

Episode 182 explains it in much greater detail ❤️🇺🇸

3 We've built a squadron - now let's build a WING! The mere fact that 250 of you have come together the provide the support for the podcast is overwhelming. Thank you! I just mailed out thank you letters to those who I had the address for.
 
The hardest part of the podcast is the piece so many of you recognize - and that's the interruption to Janine and Megan's routine as I 'shut the house down' to record and go live.
 
I've been working towards moving into a dedicated studio for a bit, but I've had to slow down the train to make sure it was a sustainable jump to the show. The last thing I want to do is make a leap I can not sustain. Your financial support is helping tremendously. We are getting there!
 
I have a few contracts with outside advertisers for the remainder of Q2 but the bulk of the support comes from YOU! Your pledges give me a consistent budget framework to build from! So thank you!
 
I'm all about attendance - not performance, you know that. So I make a simple ask of you - please join the Patron Community with a monthly pledge of $1 - and spread the word. With the 8000+ daily listeners - $1 per month from just half of you will make a tremendous difference! http://dag.fyi/FDPatron
 
To those who already contribute, Thank you! On 4/14 I will announce the First Annual "Patron Award" to someone who was there since day ONE! You're not gonna want to miss it. I will broadcast that LIVE from inside the Patreon App, so you have to be a contributor to watch it!
