The Rantings of a Former Fat Man

Change your diet and change your life - Tim Kaufman

………and so it begins

I thought starting a blog would be a good idea because I’m working on a book and I figured it would be a great place to jot my thoughts down. I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing when it comes to a blog and honestly, I’ve never even subscribed to one. Aside from jotting my thoughts down I love to share my story, not for kudos or attaboys but I genuinely want my story to encourage other people to change their life. My life has changed so drastically and that feels amazing but when I witness someone else making healthy changes because of my example I get ecstatic.  Never in a million years would I have imagined that this 400 pound, sick, depressed, crippled guy could talk someone else into eating healthy and exercising.

So, what’s the plan? My goal is to write about a topic at least once a week. The topics will be lessons that I have learned (and am still learning) along my way. Things I wish someone would have told me years ago although I likely wouldn’t have listened anyway. I firmly believe that a healthy life can’t happen from diet and exercise alone. I have found that most of the time we treat symptoms and not problems. Losing weight and getting fit are not rocket science BUT how do you stay in it a lifetime? I strongly believe that obesity and living an unhealthy life is a just a symptom of something else that needs to be dealt with. With that said, the topics I write about will cover a broad spectrum. As my life started changing I started to realize that the food was actually a small part of what was wrong in my life but time and time again I told myself if I could just drop 100 pound everything would be better. I was wrong. Without further ado, let’s get this blog started. I sincerely hope I can keep it interesting and worthwhile.

Bare with me as I stumble through the learning curve.  😉

  1. Thank you so much for this blog. I also have EDS.

    • I sincerely hope my perspective can help others with EDS. There’s really not much out there. I will definitely be focusing more on it in the near future. We will never get rid of EDS but the key for me was to keep inflammation and atrophy at bay. The good news is that diet plays a HUGE role. Thanks for the comment.
