Stats: Age: 45yrs at the start of this book. Height: 5’5 ¼. Yes, I count every inch or part thereof. Weight: 192lbs. You may not believe that but it’s true. Dress size: 14 depending on cut and materials used in construction. BMI: 32%. Yes, I’m considered to be obese. Medications taken to date: None. Marathons Completed to date: One. FreePress/Flagstarr Bank ½ Competitive Walking Marathon. I’m also playing with the thought of enrolling in the American Council on Exercise, (ACE) Personal Training Certification program. On March 16th 2009, I vowed to myself that I would begin to live a healthier lifestyle. This time it wasn’t about weight. This time, it was about wanting to age with vitality and favor.
I guess you’re wondering why I’m telling you all of this. It’s simple. I want you to shift your focus from vanity to healthy living, to live a quality life which incorporates exercise as its foundation. I promise you, if you do that, the rest, including weight loss, will follow.
So here’s to you my friend. Live life and prosper.
