The outpouring of support for my book has been absolutely incredible and a true blessing to me on many different levels. "Thank you" doesn't seem like enough to say, really. Trust when I say, "thank you," it comes from a very sincere place in my heart.
Instead of writing a regular blog post, I thought I'd simply let the pictures tell the story of the last few weeks (of course--I may feel the need to add a caption or two...or several along the way).
Custom signed first edition copies are available directly from me by visiting www.transformationroad.com You can also order from Amazon.com or any bookstore can order it for you. My local bookstores, Brace Books and More in Ponca City, OK and Hastings in Stillwater, OK have copies on the shelf. Brace has plenty of signed copies. Also--Ereader editions are available from Kindle, Nook, KOBO, Sony Ereader, and iPad iBooks.
So--here we go...The last few weeks: In Pictures...
Dave Deken of Deke Media snapped this picture on the day of my hometown book signing. I was offering a rare serious pose--although, moments after--I'm pretty sure we all cracked up laughing as a result.
My dear sweet momma. I love her dearly.
With Rachel--aka "Cinnamon" I've known Rach since high school--in fact, she's mentioned in the book.
My grandma with me at my hometown signing...This, wow...an incredible blessing to me.
Aunt Kelli--who is responsible for many of these pictures! Thank you Kelli!
With my girlfriend Kelly at Hastings Signing.
Kelly is much more than a girlfriend. She's been a true blessing in the organizational development of my start-up company "505 Industries."

One of my favorite things to do is discuss the mental dynamics I've employed along the way with wonderful people like this customer at Hastings.
The very first person in line at Hastings was a very special blast from the past. I knew her as Mrs. Schlimpert when she was my first grade teacher at Pleasant View Elementary School. Today, the lovely Mrs. Janis Davis is a retired educator. She's the teacher who taught me how to read and write...and now she's buying my book...what a cool moment, indeed. Thank you Mrs. Schlimpert!! (I can't help it--it feels strange to call her anything else.)
At the Stillwater YMCA speaking about weight loss at the very Y where I attended summer day camp as a child.
YMCA Book Signing after the speaking event. It was amazing to have so many loving family members attend this event. It was the first time any of them have had a chance to see me speak about weight loss. Looking over and seeing their wonderful faces during the event--was a beautiful moment, indeed.
With my dear Aunt Connie! Aunt Connie and her incredible cake baking talents are talked about early in the book. It was so incredibly awesome to have her here with us!!
My cousin Candi!!
And Candi's sister, my cousin Bobbie Jo!

Coming soon--another video from Deke Media of my homecoming weekend. Also coming soon: Although I constantly say "It's not about the food," I'm always asked about what I enjoy eating--in that spirit, I'll soon post a blog full of food pictures, descriptions, and calorie values--Including food pictures of my recent trip to Olive Garden, where I enjoyed the dining experience for slightly over 600 calories. In this upcoming blog post--I'll also offer tips and tricks for getting the most bang for your calorie "buck" even at a place like Olive Garden!
I can't thank you enough for your support. It's allowing me to pursue my truest passion--and that passion is writing and speaking about all of the elements, philosophies, and fundamentals I've discovered and developed along my transformation road. I'm always learning, growing--and constantly giving thanks for the incredible blessings. Your support is a treasured gift to me. Thank you!
