I have been overweight most of my life. This is an effort to recapture a time when I was active and healthy, a time when I was most happy.

I've come a long way since December 6 of 2007. I have increased my fitness in ways I didn't know possible. I feel like a different person. Now I need to keep it up, which I'm having a little trouble with. I'm struggling with keeping my calorie intake right now.
My father died earlier this month, and I tend to use food as my comfort. I haven't experienced this much stress in many years, and I have found myself falling back into old habits. I am determined to get myself back under control and back to a healthy lifestyle.
