2013 Chubby Hubby Contest Updates
Thank you to all of my family and friends for helping me get this far! A little history about myself, I used to play soft ball 3-4 nights per week. As we all know, getting older is a challenge in itself, and I have already overcome many hurdles including knee and ankle surgery. Most recently, I had a double hernia surgery, 2 heart attacks within the last year and a half, and a cancer scare. I know that life is too short and giving up now is not an option for me. My wife recently challenged me to lose 50 pounds by the end of this year. Since I have 2 amazing kids (ages 20 and 4) I have a lot to live for. With your love and continued support I am ready to accept this challenge. I am fully committed to doing whatever it takes to stay motivated and to not give up. I want to get back out on the field and start hitting home runs again. I want to be around when my son graduates from high school and I don't want him to be embarrassed of me. Most importantly, I hope that I will make you all proud. Thanks again for voting me into the Top 5 and for giving me this great opportunity.
My name is Ronald D. Simkiss and I am 32 years old. I used to be a very active person and loved the outdoors... hiking, camping, gold panning and anything where I'm close to nature. My rock, my Mom, passed away suddenly at the young age of 49 and my whole world was turned upside down. I did not know how to handle loosing the most important woman in my life and turned to food. I've gained over 100 pounds since she passed and still struggle daily with the hurt and loss I feel. I need help and I am hoping this opportunity will get me started on the right path and give me the drive I need to lose the weight. I want to be around for my two kids and want to move forward with my life. I know I can do this... it just starts with me having the right tools and support to so this. I am ready!!!
I entered this contest because I am tired of being fat and unhealthy. Heart disease runs in my family and being overweight doesn't help. My weight has caused me to have Type II Diabetes and Sleep Apnea. I suffered a heart attack at the age of 29 and underwent open heart surgery one year ago. I have struggled to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I feel this opportunity is a blessing I will not let go to waste. I have a beautiful wife and three amazing kids who deserve to have a husband and father who can be as active as possible. I am constantly tired and have no energy at the end of the day to do something as simple as take my son for a bike ride. Please vote for me so I can continue on this journey to a healthy and happy life.
I am 44 years old and have been married for 20 years to a person who gives all of herself to everyone around her, I have 2 kids, ages 16 and 12, who are growing up fast. I know what I have in my life, and my biggest fear is to lose them, or for them to lose me. My friends call me Big Sexy, i want them to not think of me a big. Just sexy. I want to win this, not to make my friends and family proud, because I know that they will be proud no matter what, but to make me proud of myself. I want to win this so I can take the prize and give it to my wife so she can buy a new sofa. I have ruined the old ones we have had because of my weight. She always says that living with 3 boys she can't ever have anything nice. So consider a vote for me. Help me become just Sexy. Help me be proud of myself. Help my wife get a couch!
I started dating my wife in July of 2006. After a few medical setbacks on my wife's behalf, we were married on November 20, 2010. Within the last two and a half years my weight has steadily increased. With the stress of working full time and taking a full course load each semester, I was always too tired to exercise. Throughout our relationship I had been so focused on my wife's medical problems that I didn't realize that my health was starting to deteriorate. In June 2012 I was diagnoses with diabetes and was told I needed to eat healthier and lose weight. I was doing well for a period of time but my focus quickly shifted back to work, school, and my wife's health. When my wife mentioned the "Chubby Hubby" contest from Mix 96.9 and Red Mountain Weight loss I told myself it was time to finally think of me. I am doing this contest so I can lose the weight, be healthier, and to be able to meet the weight requirements for a romantic hot air balloon ride with my beautiful wife, Katherine Anne.
