My name is Joshua Weissman. I was born and raised in California and I currently live in Texas. As this may come as a shock to some of you I am currently 16 years old. I love my family more than anything in the world. And if it wasn’t for the constant love and support of my amazing parents I would be nothing and wouldn’t have been able to do what I did (which you will read about in the next paragraph)
Ever since I was a little kid I have had this immense passion for cooking. But sadly as I got older my health began to decline and I began to have serious problems with my health but my love for food remained strong! But not for the better. I struggled and struggled with my problems and got constantly ridiculed and made fun of because of the weight. So one day I had enough. I was simply fed up with the ridicule, feeling sick, and unattractive. So I began eating healthy and learning more and more about health and started re-exploring my love for food. Yes believe it or not you can be a food lover and still be healthy! After a grueling and back breaking year and a half I managed to lose over 100 pounds. Now at the age of 16 I am healthy, fit, happy, and still have a love for food strong enough to part the seas.
