13.1 MILES... I DID IT!

Been overweight, then skinny, then slowly crept back into obesity... and then ran as fast as I could toward the me I wanted to be. I set things right again for my own self-esteem, gave my wife back the man she married, and have so much more energy for my kids. Turned a new page by running a half marathon in May 2014, and am now resting up my worn knees while I plan for what's next!

My Weight Journey:

Update (July 14, 2014): I've run a 10k, a half marathon, and have managed to maintain just below my goal weight for the past six months. The future looks bright. :D

Update (Jan. 14, 2014): Seven months... 80 pounds gone forever. Hello goal weight, nice to meet you...

Update (Oct. 21, 2013): In 20 weeks, I've lost 66 pounds, and weigh in now at 199 for the first time in over seven years. Closing in on my goal weight feels quite surreal sometimes.

Update (Sept. 11, 2013): After 14 weeks, I'm down to 210 pounds! Ten more pounds and I get to go buy a new wardrobe!!! :-D

Update: After 10 weeks of consistency and pushing hard, I've gone from 265 to 225 pounds. I never expected this, and I'm beside myself and grateful for the results. 35 pounds to go!
