I've been overweight for as long as I can remember, and while I enjoy sports (participating, not just watching), I've been at my heaviest the last several years. After being diagnosed with OSA late last fall, I thought screw it, now is the time to take the bull by the horns.

I'm tired of back issues, and really want to get back into playing sports I enjoy - softball, ice hockey, volleyball...and really get back to consistently good golf. The last time I was consistent was just before my back went out and I'd lost 30lbs on Body for Life with a buddy of mine.

So I'm going on the offensive this time and taking responsibility for making this happen.

Aside from weight loss, I'm a native Canadian living in Northern Virginia...been here about 12 years now. A colleague of mine in Toastmasters introduced me to a local public access radio station, and for the last year I've had my very own show that airs Mondays at 9pm on Radio Fairfax ( called Canadian Accents, showcasing Canadian artists for the DMV (DC/MD/VA). Feel free to visit my website!

    Thanks for responding on my page!
    I'll have to look into getting a monitor. I hadn't bothered since the only runs I do off the treadmill are during races, but I am definitely curious now! I have been shedding a lot of mass, so something really does have to be wrong with either the calorie counter or the fitness calorie counts, and I am betting it's the second one!
    Thanks for your encouragement!

    Thanks for your commet on my blog and the advice about toastmasters. I've heard good things about them for sure. It's a little too short notice for my class tomorrow, lol, but I'll certainly think about it for the longer term. Great advice - thank you!

    Hey, so apparently I don't get notifications of when a comment gets left on my personal page so I didn't respond earlier. You saw that I had a few FFDP tracks in my workout list. Other stuff I have on there is Disturbed, A7X, Stone Sour, Drowning Pool, Papa Roach and a little Mudvayne. I love heavy stuff but hate the screaming. Finding bands that ride that line well is a bit difficult. My two faves are FFDP and Stone Sour. Also saw that you're a hockey fan. I'm from Minnesota myself and been playing all my life. Best sport in the world.
