13.1 MILES OR BUST...

Been overweight, then skinny, then slowly crept back into obesity... and then ran as fast as I could toward the me I wanted to be. I set things right again for my own self-esteem, gave my wife back the man she married, and have so much more energy for my kids. Turning a new page now, training for a half marathon in May 2014. "All things are possible."

Training Schedule (if you're interested): http://bit.ly/1bDlEyi

Update (Jan. 14, 2014): Seven months... 80 pounds gone forever. Hello goal weight, nice to meet you...

Update (Oct. 21, 2013): In 20 weeks, I've lost 66 pounds, and weigh in now at 199 for the first time in over seven years. Closing in on my goal weight feels quite surreal sometimes.

Update (Sept. 11, 2013): After 14 weeks, I'm down to 210 pounds! Ten more pounds and I get to go buy a new wardrobe!!! :-D

Update: After 10 weeks of consistency and pushing hard, I've gone from 265 to 225 pounds. I never expected this, and I'm beside myself and grateful for the results. 35 pounds to go!

GREGO! Thanks for checking in on me. Thkngs are going well. Just busy. I feel like each time I might try update spark then my daughter needs something, work comes up, or church/friends activities arise. But I do have a post that I might actually get around to posting. Its about goals and plans. I hope you are doing well.
