About a year ago I posted that I got hired by our local sheriffs dept. I had gone to school for teaching, didn't like it, switched to criminal justice. After the military I put on the lbs, and after being hired by the SO, I was told in order to go to the acadamy here in MT, I had to pass a physical. I started day one getting in shape, and 9 months and close to 45 lbs lighter, I passed with flying colors. Now, I have a 3 month POST school. The only downfall is that I'll be away from my wife and daughter for most of that.
I will update again in June when I graduate.
Obama used "hope" and "change" to win the presidency.... Benjamin Franklin wrote in Poor Richard's Almanac, "He that lives upon Hope will die fasting." On change, John Adams wrote, "A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."

Sounds like you saw a goal and took the initiative to get in shape to qualify,being away from family for weeks at a time can be a little rough but the benefits should pay out in the long run
