Tryin' to live a healthier life

My name is Jovan and I live in Dayton, OH. When I first started Sparkpeople back in 2006, I was trying to count calories and keep track of my fitness. Then that wasn't working so I started just eating healthier - no dairy, no processed food, no white stuff. That sort of worked but then for some reason starting gaining a ton of weight for no reason. So I got fed up - stopped excessively exercising and started lowering my carbs. This is in August 2010. By November 2010, I switched to mostly ...
My name is Jovan and I live in Dayton, OH. When I first started Sparkpeople back in 2006, I was trying to count calories and keep track of my fitness. Then that wasn't working so I started just eating healthier - no dairy, no processed food, no white stuff. That sort of worked but then for some reason starting gaining a ton of weight for no reason. So I got fed up - stopped excessively exercising and started lowering my carbs. This is in August 2010. By November 2010, I switched to mostly zero carb and at times very low carb. And it is WORKING!

I used to be an avid runner. I've ran 7 half marathons and 1 marathon as of April 2010. I feel like exercise contributed somehow to gaining weight so I've basically stopped running longer distances for now. My body needs to get used to burning my own fat instead of carbs so once I get to my goal weight...we'll see if I can get back into the longer distances. I also enjoy playing wallyball with folks at work.

I have a couple of chronic diseases - asthma and Hashimoto's Disease (thyroid disease).
