Started in May 2012 at 332 got down to 280; went off the wagon when my wife and father incurred some serious health issues...now have accepted the situation and on 07/15/13 I'm starting again at 327 lbs

60 years old; wonderful wife, 5 children, 11 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren.

Outside of family time my most enjoyable activity is fishing.

20 year military retiree, U.S. Army Paratrooper. For the next 20 years i was a professional tourist LOL, drove tractor trailer all over the U.S and Canada. Exercise fell by the wayside but appetite especialy for junk food grew. I now find myself at 330 lbs, 59 years of age. No medical problems but can't actively enjoy the retirement i had envisioned..but...I WILL! !!!!!

For the first 40 years of my life....physical activity was high on my priorities. In the Army we always started the day at 6 a.m with 30 mins of the "Daily Dozen" exercises followed by a 2-4 mile run. I was an avid SCUBA diver, hunter, fisherman, weekend trapper, and even spent 42 days climbing Mt Denali (Mckinley) in Alaska. It's been missing too long in my life...time for a come back; and it WILL happen.
