    Interview an amazing survivor Jimmy Roenick, from Obese to Beast and ICU to Brand New

    Jimmy is a survivor who wants to tell his story on Keepin It Real w/Caramel to help others that may be going through the same or similar situation. He is such an amazing person. Jimmy is from Michigan and he now resides in Tampa, Florida. He use to ride a motorcycle and now Jimmy and his wife rides scooters around town, which his friends laugh at them. I say as long as you are riding...thats all that matters..Jimmy is a Life Transformation Coach @ Motivation and Coaching. For many years Jimmy was obese and he felt depression and didn't have any self confidence or esteem. Jimmy was a chain smoke, alcohol and drug abuser, Type 2 diabetic, heart failure and he had a horrible marriage. Jimmy went through so much in his life. LETS KNOW MORE ABOUT JIMMY: 15 years ago Jimmy was admitted to the Mount Carmel Cardiac center, because he couldn't breath and his legs had ballooned up to 5 times there normal size! He was a chain smoker at just over 3 packs a day!
    an alcoholic, and drug abuser, opiate pain pills was Jimmy poison of choice, he was in a horrible marriage and when he was admitted to the cardiac care center Jimmy tipped the scales at 420 lbs! His life wasn't in a very hopeful or promising place!
    That day in the cardiac unit his diagnosis wasn't full of hope and promise either. Jimmy had congestive heart failure, caused by pulmonary edema and a lower aeo itrtic heart aneurysm! The doctors said not only Jimmy was sick, he wouldn't ever work again, his chances of survival were grim and at best. Jimmy would be on Oxygen 24-7 and need a literal bag of medicine to just keep him alive! When Jimmy was 40 years old! his health would improve slightly then back slide horribly when he would let his guard down basically when he would stop listening to the medical team trying to keep him alive!
    Soon Jimmy started back visiting all his old Demons and they remembered Jimmy well! Like his best friends at a highschool reunion, whiskey, pain pills, and lots of junk food! Jimmy was already a type 2 Diabetic taking 2 different pills in a attempt to control his blood sugar. Jimmy can remember one time, he was going to the doctor for a monthly check up after a night of drinking whiskey mixed with a few percocet and getting a blood sugar reading of nearly 400! If you don't know, normal sugar levels are 100 or less! He remember acting shocked telling the doctor this makes no sense, he has been eating healthy and trying to exercise by walking. Jimmy acting wasn't so good the doctor wasn't buying his BS. Jimmy was sent home with a prescription for insulin and trulicity both self injectable medicines!
    At that point Jimmy's life was in a pretty dark and miserable place, he didn't have much hope!

    It has been years ago and now Jimmy life has changed tremendously. His life is so very different now, Jimmy hardly recognize it!
    The drugs and alcohol is gone!
    Cigarettes is gone!
    Poor health is gone!
    Bad marriage is gone. And now is has the most amazing wife that supports him through everything. She is his #1 fan. This is Jimmy now! At the age of 55, he is an athletic beast, he is healthier and stronger than most 30 year olds!
    Best of all that hopeless feelings are all gone!
    Jimmy is blessed to get a chance to tell his story to others and be able to live a better life. His life now is Blessed! Jimmy Roenick wants to share some of the steps, truths and wisdoms he have found. Mostly, he want people to know the hard way on his journey not only to self improvement but for his very own Survival!
    I hope this story inspire every listen to know the impossible is possible. If you would like to speak with Jimmy you can email him at jimmyroenick@gmail.com

    Conversation on the telephone with Award Winning & Bestselling Author JP McLean

    Conversation on the telephone with Award Winning & Bestselling Author JP McLean

    You have to listen to this interview...I can't explain but JP and I had the most amazing conversation. We had a great time. When I asked JP her fun fact, she told Keepin It Real that she and her husband just received their scuba diver license on their honeymoon. AWESOME.. I would love to scuba dive but I'm afraid of sharks. Therefore, JP has been writing fulltime for 12 years and she loves every moment. I think the best part is sitting in her pajamas and drinking coffee is a dream..lol JP has always loves fantasy and supernatural since she was a child. The reason why JP loves writing is because it fulfills and entertains her. She wants to inspire and let other newcomers or beginners in writing that you should never give up, don't compare yourself to other writers and be true to yourself & your story. JP novel Blood Mark is such an awesome novel. LETS KNOW MORE ABOUT JP: JP (Jo-Anne) MCLEAN writes urban fantasy and supernatural thrillers which have received honorable mentions from the
    Whistler Independent Book Awards and the Victoria Writers Society. Reviewers call her books addictive, smart, and fun.
    Her work includes endorsements from award-winning and best-selling authors, E.E. Holmes, Jennifer Manuel, Elinor
    Florence, Jennifer Anne Gordon, and Eileen Cook.
    JP is a graduate of the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business. She is a certified scuba diver, an avid
    gardener, and a voracious reader. Raised in Toronto, Ontario, JP lived in various parts of North America before settling
    on Denman Island on Canada’s west coast, where she now lives with her husband. When she’s not writing, you’ll find
    her cooking dishes that look nothing like the recipe photos or arguing with weeds in the garden.
    LETS FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE NOVEL BLOOD MARK: What if your lifelong curse is the only thing keeping you alive?
    Abandoned at birth, life has always been a battle for Jane Walker. She and
    her best friend, Sadie, spent years fighting to survive Vancouver’s
    cutthroat underbelly. That would have been tough enough without Jane’s
    mysterious afflictions: an intricate pattern of blood-red birthmarks that
    snake around her body and vivid, heart-wrenching nightmares that feel so
    real she wakes up screaming.
    After she meets the first man who isn’t repulsed by her birthmarks, Jane
    thinks she might finally have a chance at happiness. Her belief seems
    confirmed as the birthmarks she’s spent her life so ashamed of magically
    begin to disappear. Yet, the quicker her scarlet marks vanish, the more
    lucid and disturbing Jane’s nightmares become—until it’s impossible to
    discern her dreams from reality, and Jane comes to a horrifying realization:
    The nightmares that have plagued her since childhood are actually visions
    of real people being stalked by a deadly killer. And all this time, her
    birthmarks have been the only things protecting her from becoming his
    next victim.

Gary lives in South Dakota and he loves hiking and biking.

I will give Gary 20 thumbs up because it couldn't be me. Gary wrote a book called "Destination North Pole-5,000 km by Bicycle. LET'S FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE BOOK:

    rivers and permafrost.
    Wildlife? Dangers? Risks? Constantly!
    Hundreds of black bears and grizzlies blocked deer, elk, moose, wood bison, wolves, bicyclists, and other critters from lush road-sides. Elements (rain, wind, flurries and chilly mornings) heighten the desire for sun, wildflowers, rippling streams, glaciated mountains, hot baths and soft beds. A Meet Phillip. His mom relocates him to a new school in
    the middle of the school year. Things do not go well. Phillip lands himself a trip to the dean of student’s office when he tries to forge his mother’s signature. Maybe if
    he spelled her name correctly it would have gone better.
    Phillip also finds himself having more and more anxiety.

    kilometers (75 miles) per-day for forty days searching for iconic North Pole.
    Nature awakened history and imagination of the senior
    pensioners. A love emerged from the flat Dakota Plains, Canada’s Prairie Provinces, British Columbia into the vast
    Yukon and Alaska through eight mountain ranges with
    pristine streams and hot springs over massive glaciated couple’s love and a path through nature opened opportunities for others on this 5,000 kilometers
    (3,000 mile) adventure—Destination North Pole!
    “Age is not the limiting factor, It is personal willingness to take on, and accomplish something that
    you have been delaying for too long. Gary Wietgrefe, Author of Destination
