For the October 2012 Transformation Spotlight I’ve selected JSF member “Croz” (Bob). There were several reasons why Bob–43 years old and an unhealthy 255 pounds–decided to make some significant changes in his life. Certainly at the top of his list were the deaths of his father and his wife’s father, both of whom passed away in their 40s from heart-related problems. Bob’s transformation developed in stages, and he’s the first to admit that his methods… [Read more]

September 2012 Transformation Spotlight: baldridges
The Transformation Spotlight (formerly the “Transformation Spotlight of the Month”) makes its return with an outstanding life-changing transformation by forum member “baldridges” (Stephen). Stephen’s fitness journey began a little differently than most do: overweight, out of shape and unhealthy, he didn’t go on a “diet”–he simply decided to start training for a 1/2 marathon. Stephen’s diet evolved naturally to further his endurance training. Today Stephen is almost 60 pounds lighter, he’s dropped almost 10 inches… [Read more]

April 2012 Transformation Spotlight: FatLenny
For the April 2012 Transformation Spotlight I’ve selected forum member “FatLenny” (Terry). At just 35 years old, Terry was morbidly obese, extremely unhealthy and facing what was certain to be a very short and unhealthy life. When Terry began his transformation he weighed in at a scale-busting 336 pounds. Now, just 1.5 years later, Terry has lost more than 125 pounds of fat, clearly added muscle and is a completely changed man. Now when Terry… [Read more]

March 2012 Transformation Spotlight: Terps01fan2006
For the March 2012 Transformation Spotlight of the Month I’ve selected JSF forum member “Terps01fan2006″ (Ryan). In 2007 Ryan was morbidly obese and decided that it was time to make a change. Like many of those who resolve to lose weight for the New Year, Ryan’s first attempt at a transformation lasted a good solid week. The seed was planted, however, and Ryan found it within himself to to try again the next month. Closing… [Read more]

January 2012 Transformation Spotlight: T-1 Sella
If you’re looking for some inspiration to get into shape in the new year, look no further than this month’s Transformation Spotlight, forum member “T-1 Sella” (James)! A devastating series of personal and financial events led to James’ rock bottom. As many of us tend to do when we’re miserable, James initially blamed others for his problems and allowed himself to slide further and further away from the person he once was. One day James… [Read more]

December 2011 Transformation Spotlight: NCNBilly
For the December 2011 Transformation Spotlight I’ve selected long-time forum member “NCNBilly” (Billy). Billy has been an active member of the JSF Forums since the very first week of their inception (January 21, 2004). Some people prefer to undergo a relatively fast and dramatic transformation, while others make changes that are gradually incorporated into their lives over a longer period of time. Neither approach is wrong, it really boils down to which method works best… [Read more]

November 2011 Transformation Spotlight: wisedude
For the November 2011 Transformation Spotlight of the Month I’ve selected forum member “wisedude” (Alex). Alex’s transformation has taken place over several years, and mistakes were made along the way. Initially Alex dropped all the way down to 130 pounds (he’s almost 6 feet tall) because he wasn’t lifting or eating properly. Determined to correct his errors, Alex began to eat more (and healthier) and lift hard. This hard work paid off: Alex packed on… [Read more]
