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 17 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. 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. I was bullied, shunned from groups and a lot of the times physically harassed.
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. (Before and after photos here) Now at the age of 17 I am healthy, fit, happy, and still have a love for food strong enough to part the seas. So please stick around and be ready to have some fun. I’m really excited to see what people have to say so don’t be afraid to post comments and email me if you have any questions, comments or even arguments!
