Six Pack or Kangaroo Pouch?

Auto Date Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008


Look, I’ve done it all.

I’ve walked up to women and asked, “So when are you due?” thinking that they were pregnant and damn near got beat to death.

The crazy think is that I was trying to be nice.

Who knew that they were carrying so much ‘extra’ that they looked like they were pregnant.

I’ve also been on the cell phone in the airport talking and said, “You know, I just believe that being over-weight is a sin.” This statement didn’t sit well with the people listening in to my conversation.

I’ve also been on several airplane flights where the person next to me had their whole body ‘overflowing’ into my seat and they were sweating profusely to the point where I was getting their ‘juices’ on me. NOT COOL!.

Now, I must admit. I’ve made some mistakes and been in some situations where my I couldv’e certainly been “smoother around the edges”. I’m not saying that I don’t make errors.

I certainly have.

I certainly do.

And I will probably again.

But I can tell you this.


Many of you know of health concerns that the individuals in my extended and immediate family have suffered from and many of you are aware that their problems have been doggone near eliminated through the elimination of fat!

My father went from 265 pounds to a right and tight 224 pounds and he’s planning on finishing doing his 3rd half marathon this year.

My mother completed her 1st half marathon too (I’d like to tell you how much she lost but good ole mom won’t tell me how much she weighs) :-)

Last year at this same time I weighed 241 pounds and now I’m chilling at a right and tight 220 pounds. (And I’m working at getting to 212. (when I get down there, I’ll be sure to send pictures).

What I’m saying is this……

Do Yourself A Favor

Many people are dying unnecessarily because they refuse to impose healthy eating habits.

We are ALL going to die. That part we can’t control, but we can control how we live.

Let’s not live life huffing and puffing to walk up a flight of stairs or live life breathing heavy before after and during sex and worse yet, not being able to perform with your mate at all.

Let’s not live life loathing the times when we have to bend over to tie our shoes.

Let’s not live life where we have to eat so much that its necessary for us to unbutton our pants so that we can BREATHE!

Let’s get it together good people.

Let’s stop walking around with these “kangaroo pouches” and start walking around with our six packs. we’ve got ‘em. All we have to do is show ‘em.

So whaddya say?

But, Rhadi, it’s so

Yeah, I know its hard, but its harder making your loved ones watch you suffer from diabetes, heart disease, and ailments that are directly and indirectly related to your weight gain or lack of weight loss, healthy eating and exercise.

So PLEASE help me help you. I want you to get the help that you need. If you need someone to talk to, please give me a call or send me an email and set up a phone consultation.

An “Inside” Look At Olympic Level Judo Preparation (part 1)

Auto Date Thursday, July 17th, 2008


I was just training with Taraje and I wanted to let you in on what we were doing.

In the 60kg weight class a throw called “Sumi Gaeshi” is the new Drop Seoinage.

About 5 to 10 years ago, everybody in the 60kg weight class was doing drop seoinage.  Now, everybody is doing Sumi Gaeshi.

It is a HARD throw to stop and a very safe attack to perform. Because so many people in the weight division use it, Taraje and I had to really prepare to stop it and of course, we start from the ground up.

Here’s part one of Taraje’s training
