Hi I am Bro Dave and this is my story. I was raised on a farm in western Kentucky. When I Graduated from high school in 1978 I went into the Air Force for 4 years then went into the Army. After 3 years in the Army I was in great physical shape. Running about 6 miles a day and the gym 3 nights a week. But I broke my foot in 1986 an started a downhill slide physically. I couldn't run and at the same time I stopped smoking and was sent to Germany (great food). I was medically discharged in 1989 and went to Bible College. All the time getting bigger and bigger. I have pastored since I graduated In 1993. Then in 2001 I found out that I'm a diabetic at that time I weighed 300 lbs. I got scared because my dad and oldest brother died from complications of diabetes. So started loosing weight and did real good I lost down to 210. Over the last 7 years I have steadily gained and am back up to 255. I recently moved and am now the pastor of the Northwest Baptist Church in Leavenworth KS. The love of my life for 30 years is Jane. We have 2 daughters and 6 of the most beautiful grand children you could ever meet. My wife is my greatest motivation.

    Hi! Your wife is on some of my teams (I'd have to look to see which ones) Looks like you are making good progress. Your story is interesting too. We live in Germany right now - ministering to Germans for the past 11 years. They do have good food, but thankful they also do a lot of walking, which we try to do as much as possible. God bless as you work on meeting your goals.
