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.

I was .1 from my goal and then life got in the way and now its like 13lbs away but we keep fighting the fight. 26 lbs is nothing to sneeze at. You're doing well. Catch ya later. emoticon
