...I am fat.

But that is not the end of the story.

Hi every(any)body. It's me, AL. I haven't been around for a long time. I intentionally droppped the ball, and let it stay there on the floor as I consumed thai food and felt sorry for myself. There's no real reason, it just happenend. I haven't exercised. I haven't ridden my bike or had many exciting health adventures to tell you about.

But seriously, how long can I push the envelope? My dad died when he was 52. I turned 45 this year, and I'm probably more out of shape than he was. I need to do something. Make some changes. Live longer than my dad. Be around to love my kid longer.


Today I'm going to try a few different things. I know I can do it. I've done it before.


What else can I tell you? Who knows. I feel apologetic, optimistic, scared.

    emoticon back! I'm not "doing" SP right now, but I just had to come offer some moral support.

apologetic, optimistic, scared . . . story of my life. A good place to start. And I am confident you will be adding motivated, healthy, satisfied and other feel good words in due time.
