My Renaissance

I turned 50 last year, and 50 quickly turned on me. Now, I'm getting my health in order and reclaiming my life. The journey starts here.

My Goals:
I started at 244, after having peaked at 253 several years ago. I have not been able to get the weight off - until now. I now weigh what I did in my 20s.
Start: 244 lbs
1st Goal: 219 lbs
Final Goal: 209 lbs

My Program:
All I do is track what I eat and exercise 3-4 days a week. Since I can now see the caloric impact of what I eat, it made me no longer want junk. I eat zero fried food, and my diet is mostly lean protein and complex carbs.

Other Information:
I am a photographer - especially street photography, poet, and a writer by avocation.

Welcome to Photobugs! Please come over and post in some of our topics when you have time. We are currently posting fall and Halloween pictures, but if you come across a great shot, we would love to see it! We post everything from sunsets to insects ( and everything in between!). I look forward to seeing your pictures!
