Hello and thank you for checking out my story! My name is Jason and I work as a Paramedic in Orlando. In addition to that, I own OFF ON the Go, a travel and entertainment website. Three years ago, I started my health journey to transform myself. My starting weight was over 320 pounds and I could not keep living that life. Food for some is a basic necessity, but for me, it was an escape from life. I choose food to celebrate accomplishments but also to cure sadness and issues in my life. I did not want to live that life anymore.
I started working out and saw a bariatric surgeon. In January 2018, I underwent weight loss surgery that would kickstart my goals. It’s been more than two years now and I have lost over 135 pounds! Through this process, I have also gained a love for working out and living a healthy lifestyle.
I am excited to announce that I will be the ambassador for the 2020 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend powered by AfterShokz to support Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. I will be racing the 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon over the weekend and raising money and awareness to support the food bank. I decided to get on board with this program because I know what it’s like to eat for fun but also know now what it is to eat to survive. For some in our community, they do not have this luxury and have to worry where their next meal will come from. Because of Second Harvest Food Bank, thousands in Orlando and the surrounding areas will have food to eat.
Thanks for following along on my journey. I’ll be sharing more about my training, healthy eating, and of course, having fun in Orlando! You can follow my social journey on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter at @OFFOnTheGo. Thanks for checking out my story and if you see me on race day, make sure to cheer me on!
You can help outrun hunger at Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend too.
