Male, 56 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 4 grandkids. Was very athletic and in great shape in my younger years but even then I struggled with eating habits and gained weight easily. 25 years of poor eating habits go by....3 years ago I was diagnosed with coronary artery disease and had 5 stents placed in my coronary arteries, have been told I'll likely need bypass surgery at some point in the future. Over the past year my blood sugar levels have been creeping up, getting close to pre-diabetic levels. Dec 2013 I fell off the roof onto my back on an asphalt driveway, fractured my L5 vertebrae, broke 2 ribs and punctured a lung....from that I'm now having back pain, numbness and nerve pain in my lower torso and legs/feet. So I have multiple important reasons to eat better, lose weight, exercise, and live a healthier lifestyle.
I'm tired of feeling like crap and constant worry about my health. My heaviest known weight was about 279 lbs. May 1, 2014 = a new start after a couple years on fatsecret and no change in anything. It's time to be intentional and take control of the things I am able to do for my health. Diets do not work, they've always been a temporary weight loss that just comes back, so this is a lifestyle change. Looking forward to a healthier and happier me, one day at a time. :)
