Running

FNG - Friendly New Guy :-)

Hello there everyone. I'm George. I'm currently 42 years old and 6 feet tall. I was 406 lbs. when I got on my doctor's scale 6 months ago. As of this morning's weigh-in. I'm 292.6 lbs so I've lost 87.8 lbs thus far and am rather excited at the prospect of being my leader's first hundred pounder. I would like to finish up at 180 lbs...which is ten pounds over my fighting weight but given my age, totally doable. Happily my wife is taking the journey with me and we are both chock full of motivation. We are currently giddily discussing the prospect of running the Disney Wine & Dine half-marathon in October. I love, I LOVE to cook and I find it only fitting that my skills in the kitchen are helping us shed the pounds since they were instrumental in putting them on.
