About Me

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.
