I woke up this morning and started to take all the warning signs in my life seriously for the first time. I am 45, 54 pounds above the weight I should be, I have high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, am starting to exhibit symptoms of type 2 diabetes, and have a family history of heart disease. This has been coming for a while, but this morning, for whatever reason, I heard the ticking of the bomb.
I have horrible habits. Both my job and my hobbies are sedentary. I have time to exercise, but have not been. I pay very little attention to what goes in my mouth. I feel stressed/anxious in the evenings and drink beer to alleviate it. Nothing makes leftover pizza look better than a six pack of beer. I probably consume 3,000+ calories after dinner most evenings.
I was not always fat. I was an athlete is school and had a good physique throughout my twenties. I would like to get back into shape - and not round either.
I found FitDay this morning for the first time and it looks like a great site. I hope I can be posting about my success story in 2011.
