My name is David, 49 years old. I'm a Toad (old nickname) obviously from Utah (re: my username) and have been on the weight trail for many years... basically from childhood. Although I've always been heavy (big ol' offensive lineman, not a running back LOL ), I was in relatively good shape for most of my life, but 3-1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, and I have been much more conscious of my eating and exercise habits since. I plan to get myself back down to my ideal weight (which, by no means, is my goal BMI weight! :? )
I have a wife, who works for Weight Watchers and is skinny and healthy-food conscious. I have 5 children, three adults and two younger children -- 3 girls and two boys (GBBGG). I love to ride my bicycle and my motorcycle, and never get enough of either! :( I enjoy exercising and love the outdoors.
I have recently started to increase the intensity and frequency of my daily routine, and have felt the benefits. Combined with my food intake consciousness, it should make a good difference in my weight.
Love to ride my bike, both my Specialized mountain bike, and my Suzuki m50 Cruiser. I'd say it's because I love the feel of the wind in my hair, but that's getting thinner... and I wear a helmet besides! :)
One wife, five kids, and love 'em all!
