When I started here, I was angry and disgusted with myself. A week after I started, I found myself in the hospital learning that I had spent the last year or so about one moderately firm poke in the wrong spot away from either death or massive open surgery and long-term hospitalization. The end result is that I'm not being slowly poisoned any more and the future looks brighter than it has in ages.

Makes a fellow pause, y'know? Now I know some things about myself that I didn't know before. About where my mental, emotional and physical limits are. Any lack of clarity about my priorities has been evaporated. I care about my family, my self, and our mutual happiness first, and everything else a distant second.

I'm still fat, but looking around here, it's clear that fat can be overcome. I'm going to stay positive, stay active, and keep collecting data--I WILL reach my goals--and if I can help anyone else reach theirs, that's gravy!

Fitness Minutes: 279

My Goals:
I'm a realist. I know that with my height, my frame and my genes, I'm never going to be slim. it's not in the cards. But I am going to be fit, healthy, and not obese. I am the only person responsible for and, therefore, the only person with authority to change my life.

My Program:
I am tracking what I eat, every day, every meal, every snack.

I am exercising regularly, gym 3 times a week, and as much additional activity as I can manage every day.

I want to be able to run a mile, to bike to work, to exercise my dog. I can and will accomplish these things.

Personal Information:

Charleston, SC

Place of residence:

Herndon, VA

Very Married




Other Information:
I am an omnivorous reader, an inconsistent writer, and a thoroughly untalented musician.

I like to play games of all sorts.

I have a deep appreciation for good engineering, innovative design, and fearless artistry.

I believe that the accumulation of material is neither it's own reward, nor a means to any kind of purposeful end.

I believe in my own freedom, that it originates in me and cannot be taken away from me regardless of my situation or condition. It was born with and dies with me and no one else can possess it unless I allow it.

I believe the same thing about you.

I believe that we have an overriding responsibility to use that freedom wisely, humanely, and, above all, kindly.

I believe that is not too much to ask of ourselves and our fellows.
