Hello, I'm GBrade - you can call me Brade. I spend a lot of time alone at home in front of my pc.

Member Since: 2/23/2007

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
My goals are all about fitness. I'm not a fitness freak, I just want to be able to move around comfortably. My obesity is wearing away my knees and my feet are really suffering under the burden of carrying me. They are spreading and that makes it hard to buy shoes, and they hurt.

My Program:
I have to learn not to sit and eat and stay up late all night consuming coffee and snacking. I need to get out of my comfort zone and get out there, doing more and moving. I must change my habits and my environment and that's what I'm doing here.. I'm turning my life around. Thank you for the positive nature of this website and the wonderful tools. I'm excited!

Personal Information:
Aussie born, Aussie bred. I've never been off this desert island continent. I was widowed young and left to raise 3 small boys.. still babies.. on my own. They are grown men now and have made their own lives in other states, thousands of miles away. But we still stay in touch - or we at least "see" each other daily and say Hello in passing - thanks to the internet. I guess I see them each fairly regularly.. every year give or take a few months.

Other Information:
I'm a spiritual person but not religious as in Churchy. I think it's important to understand that if you want to succeed in life you need to live in a God-fearing way and with a joyful hope for the future. Also, having respect for one's gift of life and treat your body with the respect it deserves is one way of showing appreciation for our loving Creator. This viewpoint will be a major motivator for me.
