Hi. My name is Ted. I'm 38 years old. And I want my healthy life back.

I was a SparkPeople success story. I followed the plan. I set goals. I formed new habits. I achieved goals and saw results. I lost 25 pounds. I ran my first 5k. I bought new clothes. I gained self-confidence. I was where I wanted to be and where I wanted to stay.

And then I let myself go. That was just over a year ago. I'm now 30 pounds overweight. I've forsaken my conditioning. I've grown lazy in my eating choices. I've stopped all but stopped running. I can see and feel the changes I've allowed to happen. I'm low on energy. And the circumstances only feed into my lack of desire to make changes.

I want my health and fitness back. I want my confidence to return. I want to run and bike again. I want to hike and geocache again. I want to want to look at myself in a mirror.

I want my life back.

So I'm going to do this again. I know I'm not alone in my struggles and challenges. We can do this, right?

Here's to seizing life. Everyday.
