I am a 53 year old married male. I live in Wichita, Ks and spend most of my time trying to help people become more healthy and fighting my own battle of the bulge! I have 2 sons, 27 & 25. I like to play golf, raquetball, fantasy football and spin class. One of my activities early on was jogging. It took me 22 months but I went from barely able to walk at 493 pounds to running a half marathon at 200 pounds. But, after being over 400 pounds for over 20 years, my knees couldn’t take the pounding that came with running. I transfered all that energy to spin classes! I did some long distance outdoor cycling and did rides up to 70 miles. In 2012 I lost my job and 2013 lost another. During this time I also went through that dreaded mid-life crisis and became very unfocused on my health. You hear those stories so often of people who have lost a lot of weight who put it all back on plus more! Well, I didn’t but a third of it is more than enough! It is time to get back on track and not let myself get back to where I was in 2008! I am human and I do make mistakes but that focus that I had the first time has been found again in the form of knowing I want to be able to stay up with the grandchildren and I hate being miserable. Physically and mentally I have been sick, slow and sluggish. I miss that energy I used to have, that drive and it’s time to get that back! Let’s get this done!
