  • About: I'm 30 years old and I've struggled with my weight for most of my life. At 5'10" I weigh about 275. When I was 20, during college finals, I had to leave an exam with a migraine. When I went to the clinic they took my blood pressure and got a reading of 220/114 and immediately started me on blood pressure medication which I've taken ever since. soon after I turned 30, my doctor decided that my LDL cholesterol was not coming down on it's own and started me on cholesterol medication as well. I have several skin problems including hand eczema and folliculitis. My knees are starting to give out, and I've had surgery on my foot to remove bones spurs caused by the bones rubbing while supporting the extra weight. Even though I'm 30, my body thinks it's 55, and it's very frustrating to feel like an old man when everyone around me is enjoying the what should be the prime of our lives. If I don't make a change, my doctor says I will be lucky to live very far past 45 or 50.
  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: My wife and I have been married almost 2 years and she insists that I'm contracted for another 50 years of marriage. So when a friend challenged us to watch Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, and try a Reboot, my wife jumped on board. After watching Joe and Phil, I was encouraged by what I saw and began to think maybe this program was different from all the get-thin-quick schemes that I've been suckered into before. What I realized is that what I needed wasn't a diet, but a complete change in lifestyle. So I made the commitment. We bought a juicer and began a 15 day reboot program. Today is the first day of the juice only period (day 6 of the program). I've already lost 5 lbs, I don't feel guilty after I eat my fill, and I don't feel like I need a nap after dinner. I'm not really sure how long it's been since I actually felt energized after a meal. Well, we had an Un-Beet-Able this morning, I've got my coconut water on my desk, and a bag full of jarred juice in the fridge, so lets see how long this goes.
  • Favorite Juice? Sunrise
