Starting on Sparks again.2/1/2014

For most of the last 20 years I have been out of shape and very self-conscious. My career was very physical, but I ate a lot because thats what hardworking guys did. Poor food/ beverage choices were commonplace day to day. Eating healthy was a salad with everything on it( including bacon bits). My family on one side has a background of eating/obesity issues. My self-image was so poor I hated the thought of taking off my shirt in private, let alone a public beach. My body was in terrible shape and I did not want to be unhealthy. Only I can take care of my body and that is what I have chosen to do.
