After the love on my life went to be with the lord just before Christmas 2019, It was time to look at my life. Last month at my doctors office i weighed in at 317 pounds. Though I’m a big frame tall guy, my ideal weight should be around 200 pounds. Today i weighed in at 293 pounds! 🙂
When i was 13 i hung around a neighborhood TV shop after school learning how to fix radios and televisions. I lost my right eye being a dumb kid playing with a friend. We were breaking paper clips in half and shooting em with rubber bands. Zap right into my eye.
Growing up poor in my teens realized I needed a trade to earn a living. Dad drove a taxicab so i also hung out at the taxicab garage. Those guys could fix anything and kept those cabs on the road. By my mid 20’s I was buying selling and fixing cars and opened a small used car lot. Later on I specialized in auto air conditioning repair. I’m ASE and MACS certified in automotive heating and air conditioning, a great trade during Florida’s hot muggy summers. Dad died when I was 16 of emphysema of the lungs, I watched him suffocate with a breathing tube in his throat. Mom died of a lymphoma in 1994. And I’m the only child.
Since 1991 I have operated a Fidonet network computer bulletin board system that’s still online today. When the internet was rolled out to the public I studied it’s potential and followed Google learning all the latest web technology, and now are a top hobbyist webmaster, and manage several blogs. I’m a specialist in being found online (seo and social media marketing.) I’m also a conservative blogger and Trump supporter.
Being alone again after my love of the last 11 years passed away, I decided the weight had to go. I had to love and take care of myself first before loving another. Also I wouldn’t want to be a burden to my next and probably last love in this lifetime. Though I’m 68 now I intend on living to at least 100. Weight is literally falling off my hulk of a body! 😉
The human body is an amazing machine able to repair itself by the fuel we put into it.
