Back in January 2012, when many around the Nation were just beginning to make good on their New Year’s weight loss resolutions, 40+ members of the Sigma Mu Mu chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. decided to begin “Operation Fighting Trim.” These men range in ages from 25 to 65-yrs-old, and all have one thing in common other than the fraternal bond – wellness.
Although some thought it was a nearly impossible task to complete, they pledged to lose a total of 500 lbs over the next 12 months. Today, they’re pleased to announce that their first chapter fat loss challenge, Operation Fighting Trim, was indeed a success! Their total loss for the year was 336.6 lbs, and this is 67% of their 500 lb goal! However, the following points are even more impressive:
- 44 total names were recorded on their fitness roster over the past year
- Only 5 chapter members chose not to participate
- 4 of the participating 39 members had no measurable fat gain or loss
- 7 gained weight
- 27 lost weight of whom, one Brother dropped an AMAZING 80 lbs!!!
It has been agreed that Operation Fighting Trim will continue during 2013, because the brothers of the Sigma Mu Mu chapter of Omega Psi Phi have stumbled upon a life-changing initiative that is beginning to spread throughout the entire Fraternity. Many have improved their risks of: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.

Author Biography and Book Synopsis
Bro. James Hackley just may be the most blessed individual you’ll ever meet. Despite a highly successful sales & marketing career that has spanned the last two decades, his true “calling” is touching the lives of others and inspiring them to want to change for the better. As a result of a major epiphany, James was able to lose an amazing 50 lbs of fat in just 4 months and has sculpted his 46-yr-old body into the best shape ever. He has learned to significantly reduce stress, quiet the mind and get in touch with his spirit like never before. As a result, he’s been able to free himself from a lifetime sentence of high blood pressure and high cholesterol prescription medications. More importantly, he’s been able to inspire those around him to do the same.
In his latest release, Body, Mind & Spirit: The Awakening, James explores the root causes of why we overeat, refuse to exercise, live chaotic lives and fail to accomplish the goals that God has intended for our life since the dawn of time. This is not just another diet or “weight loss” (loss of fat and muscle) book. Diets simply don’t work, and James emphasizes how we need to be more concerned about “fat loss.” In fact, this guaranteed bestseller would be better categorized as a “Negativity Loss” guide: loss of negative fat, negative habits, negative foods, negative people, negative thoughts and negative actions. This guide arms you with knowledge and encouragement to put a plan into action to finally master the things that have long mastered you.
