Hi evryone just wanted to say hi and whats up to Everyone. I am a 38 year old husband and father of 4 from Colorado looking to learn some body weight excersices and get myself back into good health. I was always in great shape until I decided to go out and get myself a hardcore substance abuse habit and then as you can guess I lost all motivation to workout . Now, after 7 years of being clean I got a rude awakening after going to the doctor last month for some regular blood work. You see when your 320 pounds deep down you know that your not healthy but when your doctor says "You are officially morbidly obese and your lifestyle has caused you to get type 2 diabetes". Believe it or not, it is still a major shock and your heart falls into your stomach.
Then to top it off I took the family to Elitch Gardens (which is a colorado based amusement park)today and had to get off a ride in front of a whole crowd because I was to big and couldnt get the seat belt to fasten. That has to be the most humiliated I have ever been. Look I want to be clear here and say I am not whinning or crying about my situation, I take full responsibility for my current state of health. I got a copy of The Spark that I am starting to utilize along with weights and riding my mountain bike I will succeed in getting this weight off and getting my Type 2 under control.

Thanks for listening to my rant.
