Rock Bottom

This is where I have found myself.  How do I know I've hit rock bottom?  Well, for starters, my breakfast has consisted of Cheese-Its on more than one morning this week.

Still not convinced? Check out the results of this BMI calculator:

Weight Status

30.0 and AboveObese
23.9!  Just barely within the normal range for a man who is 7' 6" tall. Unfortunately I am only 6'. 

Now that I am here, at this lonely place called rock bottom, I realize that there is one advantage to being here.  I have no where to go but up.  

I am fed up with being fat.  I look like shit and feel like shit, mostly because I eat like shit, and I am sick of it. Beginning this Monday, February 25, I am changing my life.  I will be changing what I eat, when I eat, and where I eat.  I will begin implementing an exercise routine on a daily basis and opting for more active hobbies and weekends. Fitness will replace "fatness" in all aspects of my life, and this blog will chronicle all the ups and downs along the way.

I am more motivated than ever to achieve my fitness and weight loss goals... starting Monday. For now I have to clean out (aka eat) all the unhealthy food in the house and drink a ridiculous amount of bourbon.
