So today is Christmas Eve! I sure hope that you are ready for the whirlwind of activities that culminate tomorrow when we celebrate this special day. I was thinking back around what led to me even being on this site, the day that I realized I needed to get some control over my life. On that day I hit an all time weight high - 228 lbs - and I realized that the lethargy and health complications were not going to stop by themselves - someone needed to take control. That someone was me!
So here I am 5 months later, slowly regaining control over my body. Down 25 lbs., working out more consistently (still need to improve there), and finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel - my goal of getting to 189. All because I took up the sport I have loved since I was a teen - tennis - which provides a significant athletic challenge and a great social outlet. All good.
So as we prepare for tomorrow I just want to thank each and every one of you for all the support and encouragement you offer to me and to all the others who are working towards becoming their best selfs. You have helped make me better and I hope I can do the same as well!
Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you! May your day be filled with love and joy!
