Reclaiming Control of My Body

I am a very active person who's love of food is hampering my activities. 3 years ago I lost 60 pounds and kept it off for 2.5 years. The last 6 months I have gained 27 pounds. I am done letting the weight rule my life. I am an avid hiker, but the weight limits my hiking clothing options. I am a flying trapeze artist, but showing up to practice having to wear spandex is taking it's toll on me emotionally. In fact, my weight's emotional impact is affecting most aspects of my life.

Thanks for your comments on my blog! I guess we don't like to boast about hthose kind of accomplishments. But you are right because I have been successful - I know it helps others. I just hope others see what an over 50 guy can do and know it is possible! I am so thankful for all my spark buddies.

Mike

Hi, thanks for the comment on my blog - it IS so easy to get sucked in by the negativity, why is that? I just finished a 50min workout and am feeling much better about myself :)
I can really relate to your intro (except the having to wear spandex bit. Won't be doing that for a while!) and love the trapeze pic , looks like so much fun.

We have another strange little connection. lol! While I was looking at your profile, my husband came home from work and started telling me about some trapeze classes up in Seattle. I asked him if he thought of that because he saw your picture or user name, and he said no, he just saw an announcement about the classes today and thought it would be something I'd be interested in, so he wanted to remember to tell me. Weird that I just happened to be looking at your profile at the time. emoticon
