Location: Clarksville, TN, United States
In 2004 I went off to college far from home. This being the first time I was away from the church and parents I grew up with, I immediately got into some stuff I shouldn't have.
Smoking stuff, drinking, even gambling....
In the end, I had to drop out of college and became a Truck Driver.
Over the last 10 years I got very sad and lonely. I felt like a failure, and I began to not take care of myself so well. I'd eat too much, and because my job meant I sat on my butt a lot, I didn't exercise much.
I gained a lot of weight and stopped speaking with friends and family...
Eventually, I met some people. I grew up... I changed jobs, and changed lifestyles.
I have lost 40 lbs, and have gained a new outlook on life in the last year. I'm nowhere near where I want to be physically, but I'm getting there.
These days I hang around with my friends and family, because its healthy and keeps me stable. Its bad to isolate yourself, ive definitely learned that.
Anyways, That's my story. Very brief and raw, but I'm not a perfect guy. I'm still overweight, but every day I get a little closer to being what I want to be.
I'm not as close with god these days as I should be, I know that. I do believe, of course. I just don't worship or pray as much as I probably ought.
Anyway, if you've actually read this through... I am serious about finding a wife. A great woman, who is strong and faithful enough to keep me on the right path too. Someone who wants tons of kids, and joy abundant. I love laughter, and making people laugh (even if I look super serious in all my pics- I just don't like how I look when I smile in pictures).
Anyway, I'm definitely upgrading very soon. If not before Christmas, then soon after it. I just have other responsibilities and claims on my time, so I keep putting it off.
