About 1K Ton Goal Project

I am an Assistant District Attorney the Dallas County District Attorney's Office. On November 20, 2017, Comedian Bert Kreischer inspired me to start a weight loss journey. I started the journey at 475 pounds. Through Bert's support, Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer and Fitness Legend, Diamond Dallas Page, I reached changed my life. DDP Yoga and Nutrition helped me lose over 240 pounds and increased the quality of my daily life, every day. It is my goal to inspire 10,000 people to lose 200 pounds. If successful, I will help remove 2,000,000 pounds from this planet. Another way to say 2 million is 1,000 tons (10,000 x 200). Hence the name, 1K Ton. Welcome to the 1K Ton Goal Project. Vance
