Oshkosh, WI (PRWEB) March 25, 2009
Motivated by the success of dieters on a reality TV weight loss show, a successful Wisconsin businessman is taking his own weight loss struggle public - inviting everyone to watch him lose 100 pounds via his website, http://www.watchmelose100pounds.com.
"A little over a month ago on my 47th birthday, I had a good long look in the mirror and realized that I was on the same exact path that had taken my father from this earth far too early in his life," Scot Standke said.
"Besides losing 100 pounds as the name of the site indicates, I plan on completely eliminating three medications I am currently taking for type II diabetes and high blood pressure"
Although fairly athletic and in terrific shape throughout school and his 20s, Standke had been fighting the battle of the bulge off and on for the better part of the last 15 to 20 years.
Since quitting his job 10 years ago and starting a successful home business, Standke said, he found it increasingly difficult to keep the weight off.
One day, after watching dieters on a reality TV show, "I thought, what motivates these people to be so successful in their weight loss? And I realized that doing it in front of a national audience was a great motivational factor to help you stay on track," Standke explained.
And Standke is encouraging others who are struggling to lose weight, to join him in his public quest.
"At my website http://www.watchmelose100lbs.com not only can you follow me in my quest to lose 100 pounds, you can also set up for yourself your very own FREE blog and document your own weight loss much the same way as I am doing in a community atmosphere. My line of work is an Internet Marketing consultant, so I naturally gravitated towards the Internet for this project."
To lose weight, Standke is on a modified low carbohydrate diet because of his diabetes, and is now visiting his local YMCA several times a week.
