Time to get back in shape!
Well ladies and gentlemen, my career path is set, and there ain't nothing to it but to do it!
Finish up a couple classes at my local community college for my General Studies degree and I am off for the Coast Guard!
I talked to my recruiter and I have to drop at least 7% of my total current weight; 270lbs at 6'1". :ahhhhh:
I have decided that cycling and swimming are going to be what I start out with (I already lift) and will start running after some of the weight is gone in an effort to at least somewhat save my knees. So far I have been mountain biking 10 miles every two days. (Due to my odd work schedule). One week in, and I already feel better! The athletes high is a wonderful thing, and by the time next spring rolls around I hope to be down to at least 230lbs, but I am hopeful for 200lbs!
70lbs in about 10 months? I am very hopeful, just a matter of watching what I eat (no more eating a work, a pizza place) and keeping with a good exercise regimen.
Coast Guard here I come!
