Seventeen years ago, I was restructured out of my job, and was unemployed for 9 months. We knew God would put us in the place He wanted us to be, and knew it might be financially better or worse than before. Okay, as long as we were in His Will. God provided a better job with better opportunity than I could have imagined!
Sixteen years ago we moved from Greenville, SC to Naperville, IL to take a Director of Benefits position with Robert Bosch Corporation, later Robert Bosch LLC.
Began last year at 233 lbs, and lost down to 216 before Holidays. Gained back to consistent ~222 lbs. Retired May 1st 2010, and determined to be active again (used to run about 45 miles a week in my 40s and 50s).
Finally, signed up with a personal trainer my wife wasusing at XSport, Tom. He stresses all aspects of fitness, and after a couple of hours discussion with me, said we would first work on balance and cardio fitness, then strength. He had me begin to journal my food intake, and I have begun, being totally honest. I began to lose weight immediately, even though Tom said to be concerned with inches, not weight. Its working.
I will add more later, because I have been cut off 3 times and am tired!!
