    Getting older changes your perspective on life. Things that once seemed important just fade away. The most important thing, the only thing really, is living a life that matters. Making a difference. Not just to those that are going to love you anyway, your family, your partner etc. But someone you may have no emotional connection with. Knowing that you are making, or have made, a difference to someone else's life gives you such a warm glow in your heart. We are here to learn, to grow and to reach out a hand to others who are struggling. That's our true purpose. prime-purpose

    Can I just give this piece of advice to anyone who’s looking to lose weight? Be kind to yourself! This weight loss journey is HARD. If it was easy there wouldn’t be anyone overweight. It takes time. It takes patience. It takes determination. You won’t always get it right. Every day brings new temptations to frustrate and derail you. Friends will invite you out. There will be parties, celebrations. Enjoy them. Then get back to the grind the next day. You won’t always get it right. But if you get it right more days than you don’t, then you will get where you want to be. Stop beating yourself up. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. One bad day will not derail you. Unless you let it. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back on that horse. One binge is not the end of your story. One donut, one cookie, one piece of cake will not undo all the success you have had so far. Unless you allow it to. People have a habit of saying “I’ll believe it when I see it.” No. Believe it and then you will see it. It’s all about MINDSET. If you go in there not really believing you can do it, then at your first slip up you will throw in the towel. Out will come the excuses. “I knew I wasn’t strong enough.” But if you go in with determination, with belief, with a will to win, you will see that first slip up for all it is. A slip up. You won’t use it as an excuse to quit. Change your mind, change your life. control-your-mind

    For the past two weeks my wife and I have been eating low carb and extremely low sugar and higher protein. We’ve been feeling great with so much more energy. Yesterday as it was Easter, and as we were eating with family we just ate what we used to eat as normal. Namely, carbs on carbs on carbs. We ate a healthy breakfast and lunch and then for dinner we had Italian bread, cheese raviolis, and for dessert had Italian cookies. So much carbs. So much sugar. Today we both feel lethargic and we feel hungover even though we didn’t drink. So back on our sugar detox we go. Sugar really is an addiction. We both far prefer the way we’ve been eating and feeling the past 2 weeks. Sugar isn’t necessarily bad, but most people eat far more sugar than they need to or should. every-bite

    It's amazing and disgusting how many drug commercials there are on television these days urging you to "ask your doctor about" their latest drug and then reeling off a list of horrible possible side effects. Yes, sometimes Big Pharma is necessary. Yes, some illnesses can only be treated with some kind of medication. But many of today's common ailments can be treated by a simple lifestyle change. A good diet and getting off the couch can lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, help lower the rate of heart disease and reverse diabetes. I was on Metformin for several years to "treat" my diabetes. It wasn't until I figured things out three years ago and started losing weight through watching what I eat and running that I actually started to see an improvement. Most times drugs are designed to treat symptoms, not the cause of any disease you may have. You can presecribe yourself a healthier life simply by changing the way you live. Below is something I tweeted. "Instead of asking your doctor if the latest "wonder drug" from Big Pharma is good for you, why don't you ask your doctor if a healthy diet and active lifestyle is good for you. Side effects include well being health and happiness." health1

    Never quit. Whatever you have started, keep pushing forward. If you stumble, catch your footing and keep going. If you fall, pick yourself up and keep going. If you have to crawl, keep going. Any progress, no matter how minimal, is better than just giving up. You started this because you cared enough about yourself to get on this road. Now care enough about yourself to carry on the journey. No matter how arduous it becomes. One day you will be so grateful to yourself that you didn’t stop. Until you reach that day… Keep. Going. dont-quit

    Eating the right food can transform your health and have a more positive affect on your health than the medication you're currently taking. In fact, eating healthy can often reverse your illness and get you off your medication altogether. Do not underestimate the power of a healthy diet. healthy-eatinghealth

    I've lost a total of 60 lbs through counting calories. I thought it was enough. But I still have a layer of fat in my belly that even with lifting weights and running as well as counting calories, won't budge. It has been annoying. Three days ago I started a new plan that focuses on eating real food and cutting carbs and sugar as much as possible. It's only been three days and already my belly has shrunk! For a while now I've meant to pay more attention to my diet. Because that's where true health lies. Food either fuels you or it fools you. I turn 50 next month and I'm going to be in the best shape of my life! farmer

    It starts with a decision. A decision to make a change. No matter what. When you make that decision, you make a commitment to yourself. When you make that commitment and you really mean it, you become an unstoppable force. In one day I made a commitment to lose weight and get off diabetes medication. I have lost a total of 60 lbs and I'm been off the diabetes drug Metformin for almost three years now. This is what I did. What will you do? one-day

    "You are what you eat." this may sound cliche but there is more than a grain of truth to it. While no food should be considered "bad", there are definitely foods that should be eaten less and foods that should be eaten more. If you eat more natural whole foods and less "junk" food you will not only see a difference in how you look, you will also see a difference in how you feel. nutrition

    I was tired of being overweight. Tired of being on diabetes meds. Tired of feeling unhealthy. So I did something about it. If I can, you can too. The first thing you need is a strong enough will to change. A dark tiled room as a background

    I took advantage of this January thaw with a nice five mile run. I will always be grateful that I took up running. Running has not only helped me lose weight and get off diabetes medication, it has taught me I am stronger than I ever thought I could be. run

    Nearly three years ago I was overweight, my sugar was too high and I was pretty much a couch potato. Until I went to the doctor for a checkup and he wanted to put me on a second medication. I'd already been taking Metformin since August 2008. Enough was enough. I knew I needed to make a change. So I joined a site called MyFitnessPal, started tracking calories and started walking daily. The weight started to come off. Walking led to running. And that made a dramatic difference. The weight started to fall off and my fasting sugar lowered into the 60's. In April 2015 I came off Metformin and I haven't needed it since. Any kind of exercise helps but running is especially intense and if you need to lose weight I highly recommend taking up running. It will transform your life. IMG_20171014_104526_010

    I love sharing my story on social media of how I've reversed my type 2 diabetes through diet and exercise. If I can inspire just one person to do the same that's a worthy achievement and makes my life worth something. Reaching out to help other people is something we should all aspire to do. Together we can make a difference. IMG_20171023_014849_947
