Low-Carb Weight Loss Inspiration Connects With Old Classmate

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ November 22, 2006

For those of you who bought a copy of my autobiographical book about my low-carb weight loss experience called Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: My Journey from Flabby Fat to Sensationally Skinny In One Year, you may recall the name Keith Jackson from Chapter 5 on motivation.

Here’s what I wrote about Keith on page 67 of my book:

“Keith and I were in the same high school class at Bolivar Central High School in Bolivar, TN in the late 1980s. Like me, Keith was overweight when he was in high school. But I could not believe my eyes at my 10-year high school class reunion in 1999 when somebody told me that skinny man with the goatee I inquired about was none other than Keith Jackson himself. I remember staring at him for what seemed like an eternity completely mesmerized by his incredibly radical change in appearance. This former chubby classmate of mine had dropped a considerable amount of his weight and restored his health by implementing a low-carb program. Although I was still skeptical of the low-carb lifestyle at the time, I never forgot the dramatic change in Keith’s physical appearance.”

I never got a chance to personally thank Keith for the impact he made on my life, but I was hoping to do so at my 20-year high school class reunion in 2009. But, as fate would have it, I didn’t have to wait that long because Keith himself found my blog on Monday and stumbled upon this blog post where I had written about his influence on my life.
