Well…I like to start this blog as somewhat as a journal and also a chance to gain some knowledge and maybe a lil support as I begin my journey back home.
When I say journey back home,I’m referring to the healthy active lifestyle I had once attained. I was in a car wreck about 2yrs ago that put me out of order for a while. In the process I gained almost 100lbs and not to mention annoying back problems.
I ballooned from 280 to 375lbs…which didn’t help my back any. I’ve always been an active person and at 280lbs I only carried a 38 inch waist and minimal fat for my height(6’3) and stature…could dunk a basketball with no running start…well maybe a lil one…lol.
A few months before I had set a personal record for myself of finally benching 405lb and squatting 685lb(I’m all rear wheel drive). I was kicking ass in my Martial Arts…and so on. But to make a very long story shorter…not short…lol…I was in the best shape of my entire life and it was changed in the blink of an eye. But I’m also grateful to breathe and write this.
So this is my Journey Back Home…back to when I could just feel good(looking good is a plus,but feeling good can never be surpased)…back to when people would asked if I played in the NFL…and when I said “no” they asked “why not?”…back to when people at work would ask why i was so big when I only ate chicken breast,apple,and a yogurt on lunch break…not knowing I eat 8 small meals a day…and so on.
Those that are “Home” know what I’m talking about. I will be there with you eventually. So hopefully I can start this as a chance to gain some knowledge,support,and maybe a few friends…or enemies…its all good. Peace
