So here I am. This WordPress blog before you is an outlet to me and my raw thoughts as I fight to regain my life through primal/paleo nutrition and lifestyle.
Before starting this journey, I was probably one of the sickest 28 year olds in America. 6’7″, 525 lbs… On the verge of heart disease or worse with high blood pressure and acute A-Fib… Living 10 years on antihistamines to control my chronic urticaria that came out of nowhere at 18 years old…
Despite all of this, my lovely wife and I decided to have a child, and last year I became a father to a wonderful boy.
This scared the shit out of me. How could I fully take care of and love a child if I can’t even take care of myself? Would I even be around long enough to see him grow up?
This caused me to really consider surgery, although I never liked the idea… It seems like a bandaid on an issue that won’t fix the real problem. So I decided I would put one last ditch effort to diet, and go paleo… I started January 14 2014, and I’m still going strong. I hope these words here can give someone some encouragement as I continue on this path.
