I spent most of my adult life destroying my body. Little by little and day by day. In high school I was athletic and very active in sports, after high school life happened and I went from an athletic healthy young man to a depressed couch potato. In my early twenties I decided on getting back in shape and making a conscious effort to become active again. I began exercising daily (weightlifting and cardio) and modified my diet to a healthier although not sustainable diet. This continued until my mid to late twenties. I lost weight and my body became muscular again. unfortunately the damage was already done, during one of my heavy lifting sessions in 2003 I suffered a heart attack. This was a major blow to me mentally, emotionally and physically. Depression set in again and maintaining the lifestyle I was supposed to be living became very difficult. I slipped into a rut in which I became sedentary and the weight and my health continued to slip. In 2005 I was diagnosed with diabetes II , I have struggled to regain control over my health since.

Before and After, anyone?
Hello all,
I have been a user of the site and app for awhile now. I Started my journey well before I found the site or phone app. I am still a work in progress as most of us are. I am recently divorced, and struggled along the way due to this but I managed to find my path and I would like to share my results.

I read this somewhere and thought I would share:

"Great abs do not start in the gym, they start in the kitchen."

Unfortunately mine ended in the kitchen also...LOL Smile

Men Living with Gout?
anapdc, Others have posted cherry's as an option to help speed along the recovery and prevention of your husband's gout symptoms, may I suggest Black Cherry juice you can usually purchase this at a whole foods store. I will also suggest celery and like others have said a lot of water. he should also avoid caffeine as much as possible because it dehydrates your body. I found that when my gout flares up ( or it starts to) I immediately drink the cherry juice and start the celery increase my water intake and it usually clears up n anywhere from 2-4 days. A word of caution though the cherry juice has lots of sugars if your husband is diabetic it may play havoc with blood sugar. Also, has your husbands kidney function been checked? Any blood test came back with high uric acid levels? Just curious.
I really feel for him gout is some bad mojo and hope he recovers quickly.
Ps. Someone may have mentioned it but seafood bothers some gout sufferers also.
