My friend Ari is a very successful Private Investigator, and a Forensic Genealogist. About a year ago though he had finally had enough! Enough of the teasing, enough of the big-pants shopping, enough of the failed attempts to lose weight & diet gimmicks, but perhaps most importantly his little girl couldn’t get her arms around him to give him a hug. Ari once served as an EMT and knew a likely future he would be facing unless he really made a commitment. So- he began taking some important steps. Literally. We talk about those steps today, one year later. Enjoy!
