Who am I?

As I write this, I’m a 33 year old male living outside of Atlanta who is at a tipping point. Maybe a breaking point is a better way to phrase it. I’ve reached a point in my life where I need to be concerned about correcting the path I’m traveling. The primary of focus of these corrections is my physical self, probably because it’s the self over which I have the most control.

It’s not that I don’t know what it takes to lose weight and get in shape. The fact of the matter is that I have had spurts of discipline and weight loss success in the past. But that past keeps getting more and more distant. So I think it’s about time I take this seriously. I’m tired of feeling like garbage all the time, looking at 90% of my wardrobe knowing it doesn’t fit and looking like the slob that I know I’m not.

And what better way to ensure that I stick to a plan than the threat of public shame? If I can’t do it for myself, maybe I can do it out of fear of looking like a quitter to friends and strangers on the Internet. Do we still have to capitalize “Internet”? It’s something that was drilled into my head in college, and I always thought it was bullshit. Anyway, wish me luck, Internauts!
