Starting a new chapter – call it 35

May 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm Leave a comment

Since I am turning 35 this month, and I am a big fat guy, I figured it’s time to make some changes. I have been wanting for a while to do something about my weight and overall health. Such that I joined a gym after moving to California. I kept up with it for a while, but as things usually go, I stopped going. I even bought a nice bike to ride, but lost my riding buddy and of course lost interest in doing that.

But something in me snapped in the last week or so. My friend Kendall, who moved to Ohio last summer, introduced me last year to a guy named Dave Trujillo who helped Kendall lose over 50 pounds and keep it off by educating him on health. So, when something snapped, I emailed Dave and have signed up to have him help me.

It’s not cheap! Over $600 spent so far and another $550 tomorrow, but as Kendall said, I am investing in my future. I want to be able to play with my kids, ride bikes up hills, even walk up the stairs without getting winded. So, starting tomorrow, I go 4 days a week to be pushed beyond all of my limits and be in what I am sure is the most pain I have ever experienced. I do this willingly. And what’s weird is I look forward to it.

Tomorrow Dave will take my measurements and I will post them. This blog will serve as my regular journal for tracking my progress. I will also try to get my wife to take pictures of me tonight, though I am not sure if she has a wide angle lens and a glare filter.

  • Uhh.. What are you doing? July 4, 2006
    So I was staying with a friend when the family and I went to SoCal on a trip. My friends were gracious enough to let us stay in their bed while they slept on the couch. One night around 2 or so, my buddy got up and had to go to the bathroom. Forgetting that he had let us stay in their bedroom, he came waltzing back into their bedroom. (No, we weren’t “in the […]

  • My son’s friend’s feet stink! July 3, 2006
    So I was staying overnight with the parent’s of a friend when I was on a trip a while back. Unfortunately, I inherited some of the worst parts of my father – mainly foot stank. So, I was at their house in the evening after a long day of being trapped in my shoes. I slipped my shoes off and placed them next to the desk in the bedroom they were letting me stay […]

  • About 3 minutes older than July 3, 2006
    I came home the other day to find a flyer stuffed in my door frame from a local politician. I don’t like people coming to my door to sell stuff. It’s just rude. But then to have a professional liar try to come and convince me that he’s the guy to vote for, give me a break. Not only was he from the wrong party (I typically align myself with one side of the ai […]

  • Fat-ass thinks I’m cute! July 1, 2006
    My friend Kendall and I were flying to San Diego for a business trip and we had to take off in one of those prop-job planes out of our rinky-dink airport here is Bellingham. So we get on this plane whose seats are barely wider than one of Paris Hilton’s thighs and Kendall and I are a couple full size fat-asses. We were seated next to each other on one side, […]
