In January 2004, Jimmy Moore made a decision to get rid of the weight that was literally killing him. At 32 years of age and 410 pounds, the time had come for a radical change of lifestyle. A year later, he had shed 180 pounds, shrunk his waist by 20 inches, and dropped his shirt size from 5XL to XL.
After his dramatic weight loss, Jimmy was inundated with requests from friends, neighbors and complete strangers seeking information and help. The result was the Livin’ La Vida blog. Jimmy has used the blog to help as many people as possible find the information they need to make the kind of lifestyle change he has made.
