Hi my name is JAMES A. HOUSTON and I'm a trucker who almost lost my health from being on the road and hitting middle age. IT was hard knowing that I mite loose my job and develop life threating health issues like high blood pressure ,diabetes or heart failure. and the loss of my mobility was getting more and more . as I continued to gain weight. AT the start of my truck diving I was very fit with a avg. of 220 lbs. and maintained that for five years but at age forty five it hit me my waistline avg. was 36-38 but in two years jumped to 44 and one more year totaled 48 and was gaining . at this point it was hard to walk and I could not fit in restaurant booths and bath room stalls . I was so mad at myself I didn't want to be that way and I couldn't figure out why ,why me I didn't over eat usually one meal a day . I tried salads that help some but no big results happened . I've always loved my MTN DEW and it has a large amount of sugar I've never liked diet drinks but knew that was part of my problem and I needed to change that. AT 425 lbs. I was going to do something I just couldn't go on this way.
this was me at 425 lbs. waistline 50" and ready to do anything to loose weight ! my niece had gastric bypass and has had many health problems and surgery's after their is risk and many gain their weight back and the cost is high as well . I have XM radio and are a regular listener to the DAVE NEMO SHOW and a driver like myself asked him to get health added to his show and in time their was info and people that came on trying to help and I somehow knew their was a chance for me that I could beat the odds and loose my weight. the driver that got the ball rolling tried getting his own support group and website but later died and I owe a great debt to WES ROLFE rip my friend
I started to put together my diet plan by reading books and getting my hands on any info I could and it worked one thing that got me here was not eating , yes not eating! I found that if we starve ourselves our body kicks in it's own self-defense and produces glucose to help when we get sick and can't eat so starving won't work and is why most diets fail.
I did it in 17 months 425lbs. to 195lbs.waist 50" to 36" I lost half of what I was and was a over the road trucker by the glory of god and a strong will to do it I've beat the odds and lost the weight all with my diet plan and their is hope if you are willing to give it your all and try. this isn't no fad diet it's a life plan that will help you your whole life just by knowing how and what to eat
