Basics about me

I am a 27 year old guy, born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and now a Columbus, Ohio transplant. I work in the financial services industry and enjoy my work – and – my life outside of work. I get to share my time an adorable dog (I’m sorry – he’s probably the cutest dog in the world…just my opinion) and some amazing friends – both in Columbus and St. Louis.

SkylarAs you’ll learn, I’ve struggled struggled with weight most of my teenage and young adult life. I’ve had lots of nicknames in my life…but most of the time they always started with “Big.” I’ve always hated that. Yes, I understand it’s a term of endearment, but I never liked being seen as the “big” guy. I’ve made a lot of major changes in my life and this blog is here to give you a snippet of how I got to where I am now – and – it’s been a little bit of a roller coaster! Follow my journey to see my full story!

What to expect

I’ll admit that I’ve got a few too many random interests – and – that means I’m somewhat scatterbrained, so you never know what you’ll find! You can at least expect to see posts about food, food, more food, a side of politics and “nerdy” stuff, along with anything else that sparks my passion at the moment. I tend to follow a Paleo Diet lifestyle, for the most part, and I’ll you can read my full journey to understand why this worked for me. This totally may not work for you, but I hope you’ll at least enjoy some of my recipes and posts.

I don’t claim to be an expert at all, (in nutrition, exercise, etc) but simply wanted to share what’s worked for me – and – my random thoughts.
