Identity Theft

For the first half of my life, I was slim and athletic. I was no super model, but I was strong, healthy, confident, and content with my body. As I got older and busier, I became more sedentary; and I gained weight which I successfully lost in the early 2000s.

Unfortunately, massive stress, insane eating habits, and a thyroid condition resulted in a regain of the weight. The addition of a fractured foot that curtailed exercise for months set me over the edge to my heaviest weight ...

Unfortunately, massive stress, insane eating habits, and a thyroid condition resulted in a regain of the weight. The addition of a fractured foot that curtailed exercise for months set me over the edge to my heaviest weight in 2012.

My goal is simple. To be able to look in the mirror and recognize the person looking back at me. I don't need to look 20 years old, but I want my old identity back - the slim athlete. Today is the day that I take back my identity.

March 17, 2013 - I wrote the text above on Dec. 9/12. Since then, I have lost 30 lbs. 20 more to go. I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

October 30, 2013 - Well, I backpeddalled a bit since the last posting and have gained back 10 lbs. I WILL turn this around, however. Just watch me go!

Sept 18, 2014 - That's not gone well. Almost a year later, and I've made no progress. However, I started running 6 months ago, and I know I've gained 4 lbs of lean body mass. So, I'm on the right track and recommitted.

“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time.
Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change.
Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
-Steve Maraboli

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it all you might.
Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality.
Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
