In 2007 I developed significant lower back pain and allowed myself to become sedentary and obese because of it. Even after I learned that osteoarthritis caused the pain and exercise is what I needed, I still wallowed in the pain and grew even more over weight. In 2011 I reached my peak of 212 pounds. Unfortunately, I stayed at that weight for over a year. I guess the good news there is that I didn't gain more. Growing up I was skinny and very active, athletic even. I played basketball, ran ...
In 2007 I developed significant lower back pain and allowed myself to become sedentary and obese because of it. Even after I learned that osteoarthritis caused the pain and exercise is what I needed, I still wallowed in the pain and grew even more over weight. In 2011 I reached my peak of 212 pounds. Unfortunately, I stayed at that weight for over a year. I guess the good news there is that I didn't gain more. Growing up I was skinny and very active, athletic even. I played basketball, ran track and cross country, climbed trees, played with our dogs, played outside with my friends. At my high school graduation in 1982 I weighed 103 pounds. In 2002 I ran the Country Music Half Marathon.
Without any distinct effort on my part, I haphazardly lost a few pounds after Christmas 2011. In December 2011 I still weighed 212. By June 2012 I was down to 204. On June 28, 2012 I committed myself to rediscovering the athlete inside and to regaining my health.
As of August 19, 1012 I was down to 188.2 on my way to my goal of 130 pounds. (Which may become 120 pounds If I get up the nerve to set that as my goal.)

Thank you, yes, driveway is now cleared (for the fourth time!) Everyone survived. We have killer snow mounds now. Some are taller than I am so that makes navigating a little tricky getting out of the driveway and parking lots! some moron drivers don't "get" that snow = slippery = SLOW DOWN!
