Hi,

I'm a Montana native and have lived in the state for most of my life.
Outside of my time in the Army, I've have had a few short stints where I worked outside of the state but I've always returned to it.

Many years ago I was run over by a car which caused partial paralysis to one of my legs and cut short my military career.
Mainly since then I've worked as a cook.

I've always had somewhat of a weight problem, but I kept it down through exercise. After my accident I wasn't able to exercise as well and over the years I slowly gained more weight (the large amount of lead in my rear had some to do with it too).
About four years ago I did the splits on the ice in a parking lot, blew out both my knees and I could barely walk. I rapidly gained weight after this.

My knees are better now, though still not totally healed, so I have to be careful not to damage them further. However recently I weighed myself and I'm over 400 lbs. -I don't know my actual weight as the scale only went that high.
Anyway, it was at that moment that I decided that my only real option was that I needed to eat healthier.

So here I am.

I am my own bad companion

Hello and welcome to Veggieboards.

Personally, i would suggest that you try and include some raw food meals into your daily diet, you would probably feel fuller a lot quicker than if you ate cooked food.

Your avatar is now officially my favourite avatar here on Veggieboards.

I used to live in Great Falls too, actually born and lived there till I was 2, then moved back as my first job out of college was there as well and lived there for another 7 years. My gramps, 3 aunts, an uncle and several cousins still live there.

I'm in the Bitterroot Valley now.
I split my time between some property I own up past Connor (my official address) and Stevensville.
Moved here after selling my house in Milltown.
Was born in Missoula. Grew up in Helena.
I have several cousins living in Great Falls and the immediate area.

I am my own bad companion

Oops! That should be Conner not Connor.

No relation to the Clan McCloud.
