Hi! I’m Marlon. I’m a husband and father of two. During the week I teach junior high and on Sundays I lead worship in my adult fellowship group.
For years, I’ve been teaching Health to junior high kids, but for a while I started to struggle with the fact that I was “talking the talk, but not walking the walk.” I had become overweight and I was diagnosed with hypertension and pre-diabetes.
In the fall of 2008, I decided to start taking my own advice again. I lost 25 pounds, my blood sugar levels are normal, and my blood pressure is under control. Every day I’m working to maintain better health. I’ve come to realize that, indeed, it’s me in the balance.
