Physical and Blood Test: I’m Very Happy

by Steve Ray on June 7, 2012

Fat me!

Three years ago the doctor told me I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and I was pre-diabetic – with a few other problems as well. He gave me pills.

I told him I didn’t need his pills, I knew what to do…

…lose 40 pounds, cut my food intake in half and eliminate unhealthy foods. Our family decided to switch to only good foods (fruits and vegetables, whole grains and nuts, seafood, turkey, etc.).

Better shape, running with my son Jesse

In addition, my wife and I decided to exercise an hour a day together which for me meant running and biking and an elliptical machine which we put in our basement.

I went in for another physical last week.

Today I got the latest results: I am no longer pre-diabetic, cholesterol ratio is perfect, normal blood pressure, and everything else is in line.

It was a bit of work and self control but it worked and I hope others will choose to do the same.

Here is my plan which I posted a while ago.

I want to serve the Lord for a long time so I have to follow a healthy lifestyle. I also want to watch my grandchildren grow up in the Faith.

And my wife? She deserves to have a husband around to love her and to be a team player and patriarch for the expanding family.

Maybe I will inspire a few others to be healthy too. I hope so.


“2016” Coming to a Theatre Near You

by Steve Ray on June 7, 2012

An important movie is coming this summer – It is called simply “2016”. Below is a trailer for the movie with a short talk and introduction by Dinesh D’Souza, college president in New York and author of many New York Times best sellers.

The movie is from Gerald R. Molen, producer of Academy Award winning Schindler’s List, Jurrasic Park and Brave Heart. It explains in plain language who Barack Obama really is, what he stands for, and the dangers of him being reelected for another four years.

Watch this short informative video preview of this movie which came out only yesterday and share it with others. The preview has already been seen by over 1.2 million people. Within a very short time it will have been seen by tens of millions! After you see the preview, listen to what Dinesh has to say about Obama, please take the time to hear this and pass it on.
