Jim Bradley started this site to log his weight-loss progress. He’s down 25 pounds already but he’s starting from upwards of 300 pounds, so he’s got a ways to go. His story:

I grew up in a small town in Massachusetts where hiking trails were abundant and beautiful. Needless to say, hiking soon became a favorite activity of mine. But, like most young adults, life was moving fast and the time to enjoy the trails began to diminish. Along with the poor eating habits that developed, I began to really pack on my weight.

I wasn’t myself. I was tired, so tired. Because I really enjoy hiking, geocaching, biking, kayaking, camping and outdoor adventures, I didn’t want my weight to be an issue any more. I am inviting all of those who enjoy the outdoors or/and are overweight to follow my adventures. Who knows where we’ll end up!

Healthier, at the very least. With any luck the “Husky” part of the site will be purely ironic in a couple years.
