Default Re: Physical fitness?

Physical fitness is a big part of my life. I run 4 days a week, averaging out to about 20 miles per week. Exercise wasn't a part of my life until last year, when I spent 9 months dropping 75 pounds.

When I met my wife, I weighed 140 pounds soaking wet. 4 years later I was 230 in my birthday suit. I had completely let myself go. Between marriage and starting a family, I just completely forgot to take care of myself. After waking up one day and not being able to fit into even my biggest clothes, I finally decided enough as enough. It was hard as hell at first, but sure enough the weight started to fall off.

This was me in February of 2012 at around 230 pounds.



And later in November, down 75 pounds to a healthy and happy 155.



Still hard to believe I lost all the weight. Even harder to believe I let myself somehow get there in the first place.
