You Can Learn Series Cares
about Your Health.

This little section of the YouCanLearnSeries Website is to talk to you about steps you can take to improve your health. This is more than weightlifting. We will discuss eating right, exercising, mental health, goal setting and more. On January 2, 2004, I set out to my local blood bank to donate blood. If you have ever given blood before, you know one of the first things they do is take your blood pressure. Well my blood pressure was so high the blood bank wouldn't even allow me to give blood. I immediately called up my general practitioner and was able to get in to see him that day.
I just assumed he was going to increase my blood pressure medication and everything was going to be okay. Guess what? Instead of giving me more medication, he told me to lose some weight, ten pounds to be exact. I bargained with him a little and we agreed that in the next 3 months I was to lose 8 pounds. Unfortunately, I had a big problem I still had 3 containers full of Christmas cookies to finish. So, I didn't start to lose weight for about 5 weeks, until the cookies were complete.

Well, I started a little dieting, a little exercising and reduced the number of candy bars I was eating and lost some weight. I was able to shed more than the agreed upon 8 pounds, more than 10 pounds, I lost a lot of weight. In this section of the YouCanLearnSeries website, we will discuss the things I did to lose weight and I will even tell you how much I lost. But, the losing the weight story is more than reducing food intake or increasing exercise, it was a change in my mindset. A change you can make in your life, if you want to make that kind of change. I want you to be happy, healthy and full of life, we are gonna help you change into the person you want to be, with the friends, money and health you want to surround yourself with.

When I was in my late twenties, I would play basketball with the neighborhood boys and we would talk sports, cars and running. One boy came by my house one day and we talked for over an hour on his desire to be a better runner on his high school cross country team. Something we talked about inspired him to excel and he ran times faster than ever before. But just before the big conference race he came to me and I let him down. I had an opportunity to inspire him, to lift him up to the success he dreamed of, but I failed. We will discuss what I said right and what I didn't do to help this youngster achieve his goals.
