My Health

Recommended Posts

Not sure if you guys remember but labor day 2012 I had a life changing pain in my guts. I was diagnosed with Diverticulosis. Doc said if I eat right and exercise I might be able to avoid the knife.

Well I was over 250 pounds at the time, just a few weeks ago I weighed in at 195. Not dieting just 2 years of eating right and exercising. There has also been a side problem that is under control. Since i was about 19 Ive been plagued with cramps and frequent trips to the can. It has been so bad all my life I dreaded going anywhere. Well I was also diagnosed with Gerd. The treatment for Gerd has not had any effect on the Gerd but it has stopped the bathroom issue. If you combine the eating right and excercising with not being toilet bound I feel the best I have felt since my mid teens. Im going out regularly I mountain bike about 10 miles almost every night. I ride my road bike and mountain bike on weekends to totally blast my body. I love it.

Its good to hear your feeling better. So Drew are you road riding or are you going all terrain ? I like going cross country on my mountain bike but I do miss the challenges of the Yorkshire dales.

On the road bike obviously I stay on the road but  we have a lot of singletrack here for mountain biking. Tough terrain but fun. Im fortunate enough to live a few minutes from a state forest

I wish I had somewhere like that to ride I have flat sandy dirt roads to ride now and wish i had somewhere  challenging to ride without a 2 hour car ride.

I ride so much I bought a second bike so others could come with me. I got tired of their department store bike breaking on the trail.

The green bike is my primary

Glad to hear the good news.

I wish I'd never stopped riding my bicycle when I got my driver's license, it'll keep you young forever.

Like everything else we enjoy this is another expensive sport if you dive in deep. I should add Im very close with my local dealer. He too is enabler like a nice guy who works at a pawn shop in FL.
