Although obesity runs in my family, I was fit and healthy as a teenager. My blood pressure was on the low side. I had the cardiovascular system of an athlete. I rode a bike, walked, ran, lifted weights, played basketball, and was generally quite active.
That began to change once I started driving at age 16. I no longer needed any physical exertion to travel. I needed a job to pay for gas, so I had extra money to buy junk food. Initially my weight gain was slow and I didn’t notice.
Fast forward 20 years, and I was obese. I had adopted a sedentary lifestyle. By 2007 I was ready to make a change.
I started this blog on November 11, 2007 to document my weight loss, and publicly humiliate myself into losing weight.
I talk about food, exercise, cycling, beer, and depression. Most recent posts are mostly cycling related.
