WHERE TO BEGIN?

On June 26, 2009 I was just "the average fat guy" walking into work. The next thing I know, I am riding in the back of an ambulance headed to a trama center hospital with a massive Pulminary Embolism.

HOW DID I GET HERE?

At this point I am not sure. This web site sure seems like a "chick" thing...not enough testosterone for me but..... OK, Kid #2 suggested I use this site for tracking calories and workouts.... She is a work out monster......no need for her to use this website....Who said I wanted to lose weight? The doctor never said I had to lose weight. Well maybe he suggested it once or twice..... I guess I was a little pissed off when I saw the physical description of me in the hospital...."Middle Aged" and "Obese". That hurt! I never thought of myself as Middle aged.... fat..... but not 'Middle Aged'

THE GOOD NEWS?

I fooled the doctors and actually lived to walk Kid #2 down the aisle one week after I went into the hospital.....The kid was threatening to call off the wedding....the heck with that; I had already spent a boat load...Luckily I got a pass from the doctors the day before the wedding...

WHAT NOW?

Well as long as I am here I might as well lose some weight.....

    Hey there. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I just spent a little time reading your SparkPage. Nice to have a little more male presence here.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I ran the 800M and 1,600M in as a freshman and sophomore in high school. I got too heavy as a junior and senior for running events. I was an defensive end in high school because I was quick. I was an offensive tackle in college because I was quick. I am all quickness and not much for long distance stamina.

    My natural stride rate is very long and fast. Before I hurt my hips, I was able to run a 5K very quickly. Now I have to jog the 5K. I really suck at jogging. I am good runner but a terrible jogger.
