My name is Bryan Lenox and I''m 42 I''m married to Michelle & we have four awesome kids - Molly, Kyle, Brady & Payton. We also have awesome grandkids. I have been overweight for most of my adult life. Life is too short and I''ve always wanted to do a triathlon. So on Aug 12, 2007 I''m completed my first sprint triathlon in Naperville, IL. with my two cousins. I was not your typical triathlete as I weighed 350 & I have a artificial hip. I really enjoying SparkPeople! It has been and is a great support system of people who all are here for similar reasons. Ever since then I have still struggled with my weight going from 301 to almost 400 like a roller coaster. For some reason losing weight is the hardest thing to do in my life! Even know I have yours and downs I will never quit!
