raise the roof

Don’t worry, this is not going to tell anyone to do anything crazy, well maybe not crazy. Raise the roof, means to raise your excitement level. The person that stops, each person, everyday, from having the most fantastic day imaginable, is them. Think about that. I’m saying that I control what kind of day, I am going to have I can have an awesome day or I can have a horrible day, I choose.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
