Welcome to my page. I’m Gareth, and was a stated in my heading was stay at home dad who homeschooled. In addition to homeschooling my boy, whose name is Christian, I am a Pennsylvania state certified secondary English teacher. I have been overweight all my life, and was always uncomfortable with it. Finally, about ten years ago, my doctor said that if I didn’t loose weight, I had about five to ten years to live. I had reached a top weight of 400 pounds.
I had weight loss surgery about ten years ago and lost about 170 pounds, but regained thirty pounds during the pandemic. Here, I blog about my weight-loss journey, healthy living, cooking, pretty much all things that I encounter. This would include updates on our case against the Pennsylvania State Troopers who shot and killed my son, on December 30, 2020, the day before my fifty-seventh birthday. This was with the ruling our our local district attorney’s office of, “justifiable,” after they witnessed my son’s hands in the air for fourteen seconds when the troopers opened fire on him.
If this is a problem for you, I encourage you to leave. I am fine with that. All others, welcome aboard.
