Guess I am supposed to introduce myself here. Here goes:
Hi, I am John. I am a little (OK, a lot) heavy and I guess it's time for a Change. I've been a rather large guy for all my life and I just got used to it, and even joked about it. Lately though, I've been feeling the need to do something different and get in shape. This may sound funny, but I seriously want to participate in a Triathlon.
I'm hoping that the tools/resources/community here are SparkPeople will help me to realize this goal and finally get in shape.
I have 3 wonderful kids (20, 6, 2) that are looking to me to be a role model to them, and sitting all day on the chair surfing the web is not the role model I want to be.
Please feel free to visit my blog (I'm new to blogging so bear with me) or send me a message. I need to be online at least a few quick times a day to log my food and update the blog.
