After talking about the rebirth of the blog on the last post. Now I am going to talk about the rebirth of a new me. Something has happened in my life that I simply feel to share with family, friends, and of course, my readers.

After several unsuccessful tries of losing weight with many products, I am happy to announce I finally made it. We are not talking about a lot of weight, but 17 pounds in my body are a lot. If you have seen a picture of my self in social media before, you’ll now I looked kind of chubby. I didn’t get to the point of being considered obese, but I was surely on my way.

On today’s post I will quickly tell you how I solved that problem in my life with the help of one of those products advertised on TV. I am not going to sell you anything. I will actually just mention the name of the product once so it doesn’t sound like what I mentioned.

 A bit of background on it

weight loss questionsAll I know is that it is a natural product that comes from parts of Asia and Australia. It is a natural extract called garcinia cambogia and this product contains an ingredient that can block fat from forming in the body. The name of that ingredient is hydroxycitric acid and it also aides the person to stop eating large amounts of food. It makes you feel stuffed faster as if you were just eating by yourself. I found out about it on a very popular television show on America whare a doctor talks about all kinds of products for the wellness of people, specially women.

Anyhow, one day I stumbled upon this website focus hms where I read about the possible results you can achieve. It kind of convinced me from the very start. What made really go for it, was the fact that side effects were not that bad. Just minor headaches and lost of sleep is the worse it could happen to you.

All I have to say is that at the end of the treatment I shredded off those nagging pounds. If you decide to go for it, you can read more on

But do it under your own risk, I am not affiliated in any way with the product. Make your proper diligence specially with your physician if you are unsure of using the product.

This is the re-birth of this blog. I used to blog about weather topics only for many years. In this occasion I want to change the way and the means I get in touch with you guys. This time, I am going to take advantage of my followers in way that is going to help you guys as well. I want you to learn from my experiences in life. I will be talking not only about my journey through Channel 7 here in Tampa, but also regarding my family, friends, my other businesses and some of my trips around the world.

First things first

If you are completely new to the blog, I am going to present my self.

My name is Paul Striddel and I am 47 years old. I am from Atlanta, Georgia but I currently reside in Tampa, Florida.

I am have been happily working as the weather news anchor for the mentioned channel in my city. For those of you that have been following me for several years know that being the local weatherman is my big passion.

My favorite sport is basketball, which I have played since high school. I then attended the University of Florida where I played for the team that won the National Championship back in 1985. I am not going to say I was the star of that team, but at least I was part of it and I got the opportunity to lift the trophy.

My first job

Where the fun started

After graduation college I decided to move to Tampa Bay, where one of my best friends was about to open a dental office. She offered me an entry level position that I decided to accept since I didn’t have much going on in my life at that moment. I new a bit about website design so I helped her out with her website since she had no idea how to start.

Then she began having a few customer and I also worked for a few months as her assistant, where I learned a ton of things.

As a funny story aside, I met Cindy, my wife, when she walked into the dentist office. Since the first time I met her, I knew she was going to be the one. We bought a house, had a couple of children, and we have been very happy ever since.

In my next post I will tell you more details about how I got to this point of writing a blog. For now, I just gave you a sneak peak of my life.
