Hello Team Voice!!!! This is Rae. Today I am presenting to everyone our first Team Voice Member of the Month. This is a chance for you to get to know the members of the group. As for now towards the end of each month, I will be sending someone, anyone in Team Voice,specially those who are In Training, a e-mail asking if you would like to be the next TV of the month. And keep a look out, and Keep Moving Forward.
Here is our first Member of the month..........
OK well where do I begin.
Well I am Mike Fess. I do intros with Jeff W. for AATM. I was always into sports, but never liked running great distances. Well all that faded and real life sunk in. You mean I have to get a full time job to pay my bills? What's up with that? I started to really put on weight. I was 245lbs. at my heaviest. Well things started to change when my daughter was born. I knew I needed to drop my weight and get my blood pressure in order so I could watch my daughter grow up. Well I was turned on to podcasting by an AllEars news letter. On one show I had heard this guy named Jonathan talking about how he was trying to lose weight. He started running and for motivation he was taking donations to help the foundation. After I heard how much weight he had lost I knew it was time to put aside my loathing for distance running and get off my big at the time backside and start running.
Well I knew I needed to be held accountable and I needed a team to get behind me and support me when I needed it. Well when I heard about Team Voice I knew I just had to be apart of the team. Team Voice gave me the support and accountability I needed to start accomplishing my goals. I was so excited one day when I got on the scale and it didn't go past 200lbs. I nearly went through the roof. Team Voice to me is more than a Team. It is an extended family. I always know if I am struggling I can turn to them. I recently had surgery on my knee and have been laid up for a couple of weeks. Well I am proud to say because of the support from everyone I am back on the road and mark my words Mike-Speed will be back. As for why I love Disney so much(remember it is part of the rules to be on the team) is because I got the opportunity of a life time to work there on the college program. Spring '99 OOH RAH! Ever since then I have been hooked. WDW gives me a place to forget about reality for a week and just act like the kid in me I have to always hold back. So I would like to thank the committee for the nomination and I will end with this.
