Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

Walk From Obesity...1 month later!

Wow, I can't believe it's been a whole month since The walk From Obesity in Nashville! We had a pretty good turn out this year. Anyway, here are a few pics from the event.

This years event was held at Nashville's Centennial Park. Originally built for Tennessee's 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the original Parthenon in Athens serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. The plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles found in the Naos are direct casts of the original sculptures which adorned the pediments of the Athenian Parthenon, dating back to 438 B.C.

I think this years walk was pretty successful. At last count, we had raised over $25,000. Funds generated from the event support the ASMBS Foundation and its research and professional education initiatives, and the patient and general public educational and advocacy programs of the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC).

This year we also tried to involve corporate and non-profit organizations into the walk. The booth displayed above is the organization where I work. The Regional Intervention Program (RIP), is a non-profit organization that teaches parents positive behavior management. I usually refer to it as a way to shape your child's behavior without beating 'em to death!

This is just me reading the proclamation from our great Governor declaring September 20, 2008 as the Official Bryan G. Woodward Walk From Obesity for Children's Health.

And the walk begins. this year we had over 200 registered walkers.

And of course, the team I walked with...The Lunch Bunch! We are a group of people who have had, or working on having some type of weight loss surgery. We welcome all people, no matter which surgery, which Dr. or which hospital you come from. Our main agenda is getting together once a month for a support group over lunch. We also do clothing swaps at these meetings, in turn saving everyone a little money!

Have a great day!
