I'm a 32yr old dad that wants to get back to a healthy, active weight. I love to cook, camp, hike, play disc golf, read music autobiographies, play dominoes, and play music. After dealing with back and neck issues over the last few years, my activity level went from working out 4 or 5 days a week to almost totally sedentary. I'm ready to make real changes to see results! I'm not in this for the quick fix, but for the long-term benefits of my health.
One of the things that I hate about being fat is that I sweat so damn much because I get hot so easily! Being a musician, I play clubs, bars, restaurants, weddings, parties, etc. It never fails that regardless of the setting or energy level exerted, I'm always hot and sweaty after playing!! Not sexy!! I actually get self-conscious about it and can sometimes focus on that instead of the music. It's an insecurity for me that is tied to me not being happy about my weight. The choices I'm making now regarding my weight and health are helping to put those insecurities into perspective and give me the power to control my own future.
I've already met a few awesome people here and look forward to meeting many more!
