According to my business card I am a writer, philosopher and curmudgeon. In real life I am whatever I need to be to get the job done. Over the past couple years I've been posing as a systems analyst for the country's largest specialty food producer. While our primary products are fruit, specifically pears, we also produce thousands of pounds of chocolate yearly. Basically I'm an Ompa -Lumpa techie working at Mr. Wonka's.

I've always had difficulty with my weight. Even in my younger days when I was a firefighter, I was bit pudgy. I was able to keep things under control until I started working at my current job. Access to free Moose Munch and truffles is not quite the perk it seems.
So it was that I found myself weighing in at 250 lbs during my last Dr. visit. While my health is fairly good right now it was obvious from the checkup that it would not remain so for long if I continued along my current path. Happily I discovered SparkPeople.
