Hello and thank you for being part of the journey. Not so long ago, I was well over six hundred pounds. I took cholesterol and blood pressure medication, walked with a cane, and hated life as well as myself. Now Eighteen months and several pounds later, I'm cane free. I no longer need medication. I have rediscovered my life and appreciate every day.
I'm not a teacher, doctor or a professional. I have no degree or plaques on my wall. All I have is the experience and knowledge needed to regain control of ones life. I have found the key to a healthier and better me. Now, I want to share what I've learned with the world. We're on this earth to help one another and I hope to inspire many with my new book "Man in the Mirror (Getting my life back)".
"Eating felt good. The taste, the imagined love, swishing around in my mouth took me away from the shame and embarrassment. My comfort was found in food." ~ Man in the Mirror (Getting My Life Back): By Dan Hawthorne with Patricia Garber.
Dan currently lectures in and around Hagerstown, Maryland, where he lives. He has been showcased on the local news networks as well as Fox News DC, Tampa, and Kansas City. Believing that ones relationship with food begins at childhood, Dan cannot stress enough the importance of setting a healthy eating habit early. And when he's not talking to kids, he's encouraging overweight adults to have their own mirror moment. "Confront that sleeping giant," he says. "Love the person not the image."
