Update: Check out all of the Independence Bowl Commercials. Awesome. Holiday update: How’d you do with Christmas, New Years and all of the celebrating (and eating) that went along with them? This is a quick update to mention that this photo is now little out dated. I just did my first “official” weigh in since we […]


In my last post I mentioned some of the benefits that I’ve experienced while losing weight and taking the super high quality Advocare nutritional products. First, a little background. Asthma. I was first diagnosed with asthma when I was 18 months old. I’ve carried an asthma inhaler with me and have been on daily medication […]


It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog… last time I did an update I was down 25lbs. Last December I started this journey at 278 and barely squeezed into my 44” jeans (pictured above). Today I’m happy to report that I am at 221 and am wearing 36” jeans! 55 lbs and 8 […]


This post is about 1 and 1/2 weeks late.

I wake up in the morning and drink an 8oz energy drink called Spark. I also start a vitamin/supplement strip that I’ll be pulling from through […]


The name of this blog (less of me) comes from a couple of areas. First, I am a Christian and a follower of Christ. John the baptist once recognized about Jesus in his life that: “He must become greater; I must become less.” – Jn 3:30 This is a theme that I hope to continue […]


Two days in on our new eating plan and I’m driving down the street when I realize.. hey, these pants are all loose in my legs! 4 days in and I really notice the room in the seat of my pants. I told you I was going to get vulnerable. And here it is. I […]


my journey

Ok, I’m going to get a little bit personal and vulnerable here. If you’re still reading, then I feel like we can trust each other at this point. Ok… here goes. I’ve always been a little heavy. There I said it. I know what you are going to say, “but Caleb, I’ve seen you speak […]
