I want to get some reader feedback
The future focus of this site
I started this site, 430ToFit nearly 2 years ago, not long after I had quadruple heart bypass surgery. Since that time, my health has changed a lot. I have lost a lot of weight, and also cured many diseases that I had.
It feels really good to say that, and even better to feel the changes in my body.
The starting focus of this site
At the beginning of this website, I focused on the following general topics:
- My Health Journey
- Health Issues
- Diet Issues
More specific focuses
Under each of those general categories, I had more specific focuses.
I focused on my past history, mostly bad things, and how they affected my life, and nearly caused me to lose my life.
I focused on serious health issues that I had experienced. Mostly on heart disease, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, and vision. I experienced problems in all of these areas over the years. I have written about my negative experiences in these areas, and also what I have done to help reverse, or at least improve these health problems.
In this general topic area, I have talked about Fasting, Keto diet (Ketogenic or LCHF), and keto recipes.
As things progressed
As I got further into changing my health, I focused in on certain topics, naturally, because my life was focusing in on those things.
Weight loss became a prime target in my life. I lost weight through fasting and ketogenic eating, and thus I have written a lot about these issues.
But, my weight loss journey is nearing its goal
However, I am nearing my weight-loss goal. Now, don’t get me wrong, that does not mean that I will never have to worry about weight again. No, I will always have to be mindful of my weight and keeping my weight at the proper level. But, I also want to expand the focus of this site a bit.
Expand the focus of the site?
Yes, I want to bring in a couple of other topics that were not originally part of the site. I have decided on these issues because I have gained some experience in these areas, and feel that I can write some interesting articles in these areas. I also feel that these areas are health/lifestyle related and would make a good fit for the site.
What areas do I want to add to the site?
I have two new topics I want to bring to 430 To Fit.
- Mental Health
- Relationship Issues
I feel that Mental Health is natural. The site has been about physical health, but mental health goes hand in hand. In the past, I have never felt that I had any mental health challenges, but during 2018, I feel that I have faced some mental health challenges, and would like to explore those and write about them.
Feyma and I have been married for more than 28 years now. Like all relationships, we have gone through good times and bad times. The good times have been great. The bad times have really not been all that bad.
With Feyma being abroad, in Alaska, for work for the past 5 months, our communication has been mostly through online chatting, and an occasional phone call.
Earlier this year, Feyma and I decided to start chatting about our relationship. Neither of us really thought we had any serious issues in our relationship. We made an agreement that we could both be very open in our chat, discuss anything, and neither of us would be upset about it. We wanted to really lay everything out on the table, and see if there were any issues.
As we did that, we found that we did have some issues that we didn’t even realize were issues. As each issue came up, we decided to confront it and settle it. We did that, sometimes over days. We talked it all over, each of us made personal changes to things that were an issue for the other, and we settled each issue that we had.
Both Feyma and I believe that if we had not been separated like we currently are, we never would have addressed these issues. It has been wonderful for us to settle issues that we did not even realize were issues in our marriage.
I would like to bring in the relationship topic to this site as well. I feel, again, that I can write some really good articles on this, and would enjoy those reading to share their own experiences.
I do feel that relationship is a health issue. Having a bad relationship leads to stress, things like high blood pressure, etc. All of this leads to bad health.
I guess that adding the relationship topic to this site would mean 430ToFit moving from being just a site about health to a site about Health and Lifestyle.
