The site name is an homage to one of my favorite t.v. series–The 4400. In the show, Jordan Collier forms a city on the edge of Seattle, WA called Promise City.
Since that city represents the promise of saving humanity, this site represents the promise to save myself from an early death. If successful, this site may even help others to live longer, too.
This site details my journey to becoming healthy. In the process, hopefully, I lose weight, too.
I’ll be noting all existing health concerns I have below just as a gauging point so that I know if these clear up.
I’m a 44-year-old female who works a job sitting down all day at a computer.
I started out weighing 300 pounds on 2017, May 1. I’m a mere 5 feet, 4 inches tall, so I would definitely be described as morbidly obese.
Around December 25, 2015, I was diagnosed via an ER visit as diabetic (over 200). I also had slightly elevated blood pressure. I don’t know about cholesterol and other levels, but I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if I have high cholesterol. I do not currently know my blood sugar or other levels.
I have chronic pain in my legs, mainly with my knees hurting. I also have computer elbow in both arms with my right arm worse than the left one.
I likely have some neuropathy in my fingers due to diabetes with my index and middle fingers tingling or hurting on some days.
I have had steadily increasing issues with heartburn for the past 3-4 years. This reduced substantially when I cut down smoking to one day a week (Saturdays). It also reduced when I started taking Chlorella Spirulina tablets daily and having LonoLife Beef Bone Broth from time to time.
I’m missing a front tooth on my left side that I haven’t had fixed at the dentist. This causes tooth pain on a nearly weekly basis.
I plan to attempt to correct each health concern through nutrition, exercise and, for dental, getting a permanent implant.
I’m slowly progressing toward fixing everything. This site is my truth stone where I don’t shy away from admitting my weight and health problems along with admitting days when I don’t follow my nutrition plan.
