Jeff Miller, August 2015, 238 pounds

Life is short and can be taken from us, our the ones we love and cherish in the beat of heart. Like everyone else I have my good days and bad days, good years and bad years, days when you can’t wait to wake up and days when don’t want to wake up. The life style journey that I chose to embark on 9 months ago has been quite the ride I have gained new friends and lost old friends all because of the person I appear to be on the outside, there has been overwhelming support and questions about how I am living healthier and when I answer those questions openly on social media I am viewed by others as bragging or shunning them this couldn’t be further from the truth, I have spent many years living a self destructive life and I am one of the lucky ones to be able to still change before irreversible damage was done. I am very aware of the fact that there are lots of people out there that would love to change their lifestyle but it’s not in the cards for them and it’s not because of a lack of trying we just have to make the best of what we are dealt with.  Part of my transformation was to appreciate life, to be less concerned about things I possess and more of the beauty that is around me. I am only 9 months into this journey and their are lots of people cheering for my success and others cheering for me to fail and be miserable. I have no clue how this journey will end but I can only hope my that on my lowest days when I want to give up that I can lean on my support team. I make no apologies for photos that I post of myself past or present I choose to use them to motivate myself only and my main reason for writing this is so when the days or years come that I want to give up I can look back at the post and hopefully it will inspire me to follow the right path again. Enjoying the best days of my life and I hope this inspires you to enjoy your days the best way you know how.

Jeff Miller, August 2016, an awesome looking, 167 pounds!!

Chuck Duboff: I have never really known Jeff on a personal level, other than that he is one of the photographers for the Winnipeg Goldeyes.  Having seen him in the past, I was taken aback by the amount of weight Jeff had lost this season…not knowing him on a personal level, I didn’t think it was my place to say anything.  On Facebook we have been “Oh, I know who he is” kinda friends.  When Jeff posted this yesterday on FB, I reached out to him and asked if it would be ok to use his words as today’s blog.  He was more than happy to share…to say I am proud of Jeff would be an understatement!!  Keep it up man and see you at the ballpark!!
