At maximum capacity I weighed 524 pounds! Follow the journey as I climb my personal Mount Everest by losing the weight. Not another "boo hoo I am fat blog", it's a "holy crap! If that guy can do it, maybe I can too" blog. Visit, comment, and start living your best life. I am Mike Badger and I chose the best version of me TODAY.
Not really a weight loss related post but I probably wouldn't have had the confidence to go on this fishing expedition a year ago. I would have worried about having a hard time keeping up with my team hiking into place and walking the shore line. When Justin, the fish whisperer, asked me in an email if I was okay walking a long distance to get to a good fishing spot I didn't have to hesitate. It was awesome to reply "No problem here."
It was a blast and I have got the fishing bug bad. The whole Badger clan is headed up Big Cottonwood Canyon this next weekend and I think Karlie and I are going to break of from the pack and go fishing early Saturday morning at Silver Lake.
Standing for 4-5 hours fishing would have left my legs and ankles in bad shape for days a year ago. It wasn't a problem for me and it was hard for me to leave my fishing spot to be to the docks for weigh-ins. I love the outdoors. I am so grateful that I am able to enjoy nature. I would have been prohibited by my previous weight in so many of the things I am doing now. I am not quite to the point where I can climb cliffs or charg up mountains but for now I can hike, fish and camp. It's exciting to see opportunities open up and see the future with endless possibilities.
