My old party crowd gave each other nicknames: A-frame, Junebug, Tomohawk...I ended up as T-bone because it started with my last initial. Seemed appropriate here as "meathead" handle.

My nickname is Big Josh Stud, and I didn't want to come off as a douche bag with a username like that, so I shortened it to BigJosh.

I have wrote this before in other related topics, but this is a short post I made some time back (with a few additions) that goes with the thread topic.

"When the night comes, I will pick up the pieces."

This statement is imbedded in my heart every day. The reason I began my quest for health and fitness is a long story, but it begins with a warning from my body and ends with the love for my wife.

About 6 years ago, my wife was diagnosed with Lupus, and also has a bone condition called: Fiber Dysplacia of the front left facial bone (has had this all her life), she can carry an extra 15 pounds of water in her legs, get skin rashes, swelling of various tissues, bone pain, muscle aches and pains, severe migraines, severe sweating, to name only a few.

She has had several operations on her face where they literally shaved her front cheek bone and sinus area that continually gets blocked from the bone growth. She had one surgery sometime back, and this one was rather serious and needed to be done or she faced certain death due to the placement of the bone growth. (brief synopsis)

She never complains, and is not ashamed of herself, always puts herself last and her family first.

She is always persistent: She is my idol.

Doctors say she wonít live past the age of 60. I say she will because of her heart.

Whatever happens, when the night comes, I will pick up the pieces.

If you ever wondered what drives me, itís my wife. I keep myself physically conditioned to be able one day to: cloth her, bath her, feed her, and put her to bed.

I love her: She is my idol.

When the night comes, I will pick up the pieces.

I must be prepared so I must keep my aging body fit for the task and not let her down or myself down.

I am not out to be the biggest, or strongest as compared to someone else, but I am out to be the best I can be. I will be strong, I will have endurance, and I will be lean, and I will keep myself mean and angry to keep me inline.

What she lacks in beauty she makes up with her heart and soul:
I love her.

I have cried and I have bled in the gym. I know the journey.

However, there is nothing I canít bare when I look at her, that she hasnít felt. It makes my battles in the gym so trivial in comparison. It makes my battles in life to work in diet and training around life's obstacles, so petty and baby-like in comparison.

She is the one that boils in my heart of desire. I would do anything for her.

This one of the reasons I am who I am and act the way I do. [b]I know I can make her life as happy with her medical condition, and want to set out to do similar things for other people. I know it can be done because I see it every day.


I see everyday what having a determined heart and soul can do to a person.

With all of her medical problems, the fire burns within. She leaves no doubt that we have it in all of us to spark the fire and overcome anything in our path of life.

She is proof that it "can be" all in the head.

She is an inspiring person to live with.


So I Chill mentally in this respect, thus my screen name.


Best regards,

Chillen

Chillen,

Hats off bro, all due respect. I think I can learn a lot from you.

When I was in school I thought it would be cool to be a DJ, so I thought up a "cool" DJ name. Been using it as my gamertag and screen name for years.
