The Long Journey To A Thinner Me

I weighed 185 in my senior year of high school. After graduation, I began to gain weight, and it continued to a high of 550-pounds in the early 2000s. Now I am making a difficult, yet important, effort to lose the weight I have gained and get down to a weight in the low 200s again.

Personal Information:
I live in Conway, AR...which is about 30 miles north of Little Rock in the Ozark foothills. I'm a Texas native but raised in Arkansas. GO HOGS!

Other Information:
I enjoy most types of music (except traditional jazz...it makes me nervous listening to it). Also enjoy sci-fi, horror/occult, adventure, drama, comedy, and foreign film movies, as well as documentaries. I VOTE and consider myself a conservative liberal. I'm not religious.

I like that you spice up the action on the boards with political stuff. It will make me want to come there more. lol
