At maximum capacity I weighed 524 pounds! Follow the journey to climb my personal Mount Everest by loosing the weight. Not another "boo hoo I am fat blog", a "holy crap! If that guy can do it, maybe I can too" blog. Visit, comment, and start living your best life too. I am Mike Badger, and this is my blog.
Met with my Doc for my physical and to get my lab work done. It took 3 needle pokes to get the veins they needed for the blood tests (I HATE needles!).
Dr. Schaat was awesome and made me feel comfortable. The EKG (heart mapping) was humiliating though. I had to take my shirt off, mount my fat lard on the hospital bed/chair. Nicole Richie couldn't have fit on that thing comfortably.
Then two skinny young female nurses stuck wires all over my fat body and ran the test. They were nice but it still sucked. I think nurses should all be 40+, heavy set and slightly unattractive. It really would help me be less self conscious.
Born in Utah, I moved from coast to coast as a kid and camped long enough in Charlotte, NC to call it home in my teens. After High School I served a mission for the LDS church in Ventura CA. I fell in love with the people. After I moved to Utah and met a woman who was everything I wanted in a wife and more. We are building a beautiful family with my handsome boy and my baby girl. I have grown to love the beauty of Utah. When I die and go to heaven, I am convinced it will be a lot like living on a houseboat at Lake Powell. Jack of all trades and master of none, I am a fixer and an idea man. I love to tinker or, as my Dad calls it, dinkin' arround. I love to find solutions to other people's problems and figure out the stuff that drives people crazy. My loooooong term goal is to be a dbadmin or database software developer. I believe in God the Father and in his Son Jesus Christ. I believe in a Latter-Day Prophet and that the gospel of Jesus Christ exists today as it did when he lived on the earth. I hate when people take themselves too seriously. Laugh. Smile. Be nice just because.
