Where to begin!

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” —Confucius


Hello visitors.  I would like to preface this post with a note that this is my first time really blogging; I haven’t written in depth for quite some time; I haven’t read a whole lot of non-technical blogs so it may take me a little bit to feel this whole thing out.  With that said, I apologize if I ramble.

A bit of background:

I have had serious struggles with my weight ever since I was a young boy. At my highest weight ever I was 385 pounds. I am down to 352 currently and it has been a gigantic struggle to get there. I am constantly fighting with a negative self image that I have been feed my whole life.  I am working to over come this, but it takes time.

I am 30 years old and have 2 wonderful children, 9 and almost 8, with a third due in March. My marriage has been restored by the grace of God and my relationship with my wife is better than it has ever been in our 9 years together! Thank you Jesus!

My Personal Beliefs:

I am a conservative Christian, which means that I will be talking about Jesus and God throughout my blog; quoting the bible; writing through the lens of my beliefs. If you have a problem with this, this probably isn’t the blog for you.

Additionally I am also politically conservative and thing the government should stay the hell out of my life. Don’t be surprised if it comes out.

My Weight-loss Program

I will be using the Herbalife products throughout my weight-loss and life journey. There is no better nutrition on the planet as far as I am concerned. When I talk about what and how I am doing I will be listing which products I use. Know that this is not a sales pitch from me. I believe the products are fantastic and they work. Also in the interest of full disclosure I am an Herbalife Independent distributor, any views or thoughts expressed here are mine alone and may or may not reflect Herbalife’s views.

Purpose of the blog

The purpose of this blog is actually very simple. I struggle with my weight and many other things. When I try and struggle through things alone I screw up and do stupid things. I can do this, I can lose the weight.  The weight-loss is a journey for me that has many facets that aren’t directly related to the process of losing weight. There will be issues and things I need to address and share. I know that I am not alone in my struggles and if my struggles can help even one other person, then I will be glad to have spent the time to do this.

God Bless


I'm just a man trying to find my place in this world. Walking through emotions and pain trying to become a more Godly man.
