New and Excited about the opportunity ahead
I ran across this site a week or so back after attending a company meeting where it was explained to all present that obesity, lack of energy, poor nutrition, etc. were a road block to professional advancement and success within the company. Ouch! However, it was a real wake call for me. Interestingly enough, I was the only really overweight person there although it was as much about nutrition as it was weight. I am glad the discussion took place.
My motivation is several things.
I would like to live longer and enjoy the time I am alive.
I would like to put things in my body that are beneficial fuel.
I would like to increase my level of energy.
I would like to see a positive lift my mood.
Lastly I would like to see significant weight loss.
I am 53.
I weighed in a 11 days ago 355 which puts me in a obesity danger zone.
I have an ultimate goal of 170.
I am comfortable I can do this as it is my nature to succeed at goals I set.
I have radically changed my diet to fresh fruit, vegetables, lean meat, etc. over the past 11 days and started a moderate exercise program.
I really appreciate reading the information posted by others. It is beneficial. I realize at this point the challenges have not really come regarding reaching my goals. When they do and based on what I see I know I can count on you guys for input. I'm also looking forward to the day I have the opportunity to add some value for you.
Good luck to all.
