I am a dude. Just your ordinary and typical dude who like sports, beer and good food. All my life, I have been a big boy with fluctuations in my weight worse than a roller coaster at an amusement park. Up and down and Up and down.
All my years I have always curbed my angst and depression with food and poor choices in eating and then when I was the fat guy, I was the joker, the funny one that made people laugh.
About a year and a half ago, I thought to myself, enough is enough and I needed to do something before I hit the ripe age of 45 that was coming fast and furious. I decided to start to take control of my life.
Throughout my journey for the past year and a half, I have gained a lot of great friends, found some people who dont like me that much and discovered that there is a whole new person that was buried under all of that shame and guilt.
With the urging of my wife and son and close, personal friends I began to help other folks by blogging my thoughts while I was drinking my morning cuppa Joe and called it #coffeetalk. This then progressed to the point where I started to record podcasts from my home and began to gain some traction with that being able to tell my story, help others in creating theirs and urging everyone to find their true and authentic selves.
The podcast that I started recording is called CoffeeTalk with Liquidshano1973 and it is a great way to connect with all of those folks that inspire me and some folks that need some inspiration in their day as well.
I am no doctor nor psychologist but again, as I opened with on this page, I am a dude. I am a dude who has gone through what you are going through in one form or fashion and If I can help just one person, one family or one life then I feel that I have done my job.
