Well happy Friday to all of you out there in CUREZONE land. The weekend is finally here and we all have a couple of days to do the things that we want. I love the weekends, cannot wait to get out and do some thing. I have promised you all some info about me, so today I thought I would share it with you
I am a 36 year old man from HOUSTON TEXAS, Yes, the Hurricane and Air-conditioning capital of the PLANET. Also the Restaurant capital. I bet you all did not know that Houston Has more places to eat than any other city in the states. So you can Imagine the collective waistline of this city. I am married to the most wonderful women in the world. It is the second marriage for both of us. We each have a child from our previous marriage. I am in the insuramce business.....OK, OK, OK, stop yawning now. I am 6'2' and tip the scales at a SVELTE 298 pounds. I am what you would call a big 'ol boy. NOT A REDNECK, Lets make that distinction right now. I was born and rasied in Houston and the only cows and horses I usually see are on the side of the roads when I pass them in my gas guzzling TAHOE or at the RODEO. I have always had a problem with my weight ever since I was about 12 years old, I was always the biggest kid in my class and although I did not get teased a lot. I know that I suffered in other ways. I DONT WANT ANYONE TO FEEL SORRY FOR ME. This is just my lot in life and only I can fix it.
I have always had a lot of friends and managed to drop a lot of weight in my Mid twenties. After My daughter was born 8 years ago I managed to drop my weight down to around 205 from 280. But things in live always dont go so smoothly. Right after my daughters second birthday, My First wife fell down the stairs of our house and Shattered her ankle while I was out of town, This was the first thing in a series of events that led me down a path of BLOWING UP......in the midsection. I nursed her back to health once she was all better. I noticed that I liked the idea of taking care of people. I thought about quitting my job and going into the medical field. YES, a male nurse, I just liked the thought of helping those who need it. I did not tell my wife this.....BIG MISTAKE and quit my job, She was not to happy needless to say, but we were ok, I had plenty of money saved in the bank and I thought I could make a go of this. WEll, 2 weeks later she got mad at me. I really cannot remember what about. I am sure it was one of those little things that we use to get to the bigger issue. Needless to say, she packed up her stuff and my daughter and moved out. Then I got hit with Divorce papers. Well, you can only imagine the downhill spiral I went into. Here I was 29 years old, no job, no marriage, no chance I thought. I was left with a mortgage and bills and a ton of despair. THE POUNDS RETURNED like a vengance, I was soon back to my old friend to sooth my pain. Looking back on it I could have done things differently, but If I had I would not be in the happy spot I am in now. I know that this is a lot to pour out, but it will give you all some idea of where I came from and will let you all see that every one and I mean EVERONE can get out of there dark places and get there life and health back.
The funny thing is I am a healthy person, Just got the A-OK from the doctor. BP is 125/80 and Cholesterol is 175. No liver problems, no Blood problems, and reflexes are great, I just got DUNLAP'S DISEASE. MY BELLY DUNLAP's OVER MY BELT....I LOVE THAT ONE. or how about this one. THE DOCTOR SAYS THAT I SHOULD GET IN SHAPE an the SHAPE I HAVE CHOSEN IS A CIRCLE....I laugh about this but I know weight issues are not funny. They lead to heart problems. diabetes and other things that can grab us.
I have decided through much reading that I am going to do the MASTER CLEANSE and then follow it up with a juice fast. My goal is no solid food for the month of june aand then move to raw fruits and veggies by July 4th with the hope of staying as close to raw as I can. I will fill you all in on the process I am going through daily and Look forward to your comments and suggestions. We cannot do this alone. Tomorrow I will give you some more info about me and my current life.
