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!

I am still changing!

I realized the other day how and when this blog got started. My first post was on changing, (unreal that this was written back in August of '07). Changing my lifestyle, changing my weight and changes in general. WOW, to borrow an old cigarette commercial..."You've come a long way baby!" Even the blog has changed. I very rarely write about weight loss anymore! Hey, I said rarely, not never!

The picture above was taken yesterday on Easter Sunday, and I am in the first suit I have owned in 13 years!

I am at 190 pounds, and have been at that mark for about 6 months now. Things fluctuate, depending on the days of the week. During the week, I'm good! I mean really good. The structure of work keeps my eating very routine. So my weight stays right where it needs to be. On weekends, that's a different story. I eat junk! There is no structure, so things get a little out of whack! But's that's OK! I feel that's what keeps me honest and truthful! Let's face it kids...Papa Scott is not perfect! There, I've said it, I'm not perfect!

Something I am proud of though, is my wife! I mean, look at the pictures. They speak volumes on what she has done! She gets a little frustrated now and then, but don't we all. To look at where she and I have come from, to what we are now is truly amazing!

Basically guys, God is good! Without the loving hand of our Father to guide us, where would we be? We have our health, we have each other, and we have RJ. Now that can be a whole other blog post, but today, it's a good thing. I am Blessed with a capitol "B"!

These words spoke to me back in 2007, and they speak to me now.
Yes, I am changing on a daily basis. But I'm changing for the better!

It's time to have a great day!

Here's a link to the other pics that were taken on Easter. I really like the ones of Beth!

Yes Scott, those pics of your family are just awesome! Beth looks smashing! And both of you look so happy. I like what you said. You don't write much about the weight anymore... I think we reach our goals, start grasping our success, and life brings us many wonderful things we did not have before....
