Our goal is to equip our network with opportunities designed for the active contributor,relevant content, powerful educational resources and shareable interactive media. We hope that the bloggers, tweeters, and community leaders that we call Health Activists will find inspiration, strength and support here.
ABOUT OUR NOMINEE
On January 1, 2010 I was confronted by a picture on my Facebook timeline that proved to me once and for all that I was a 386 pound morbidly obese diabetic statistic waiting to happen. This was my “aha” moment and I was faced with a choice. I was either going to continue to live in bondage and denial or I needed to find a way to address the underlying issues that led to me letting myself get to such an unhealthy point in my life. To date, I’ve lost over 150 pounds and 20 inches off my waist alone. I started a blog to help hold myself publicly accountable to my friends, readers, and loved ones. Now I am a warrior advocate dedicated to crushing obesity 1 pound at a time! Click here to endorse Keith “Temple” Trotter as a Health Activist!
“Keith Trotter has an infectious attitude, so one might never guess the inner turmoil he suffered throughout most of his life. Recently, Keith made a decision to get healthy; from the inside out. He not only lost nearly 100 pounds, but he found himself in the process. Keith is an inspiration to those of us afraid of ourselves. Keith is real life.” — Angela
