Hi all-

Welcome to my blog that will document my quest to get in shape. Just some info about me…I am 49 years old, a pharmacist/college professor, and a guy who used to be in great shape (I ran 10 milers and half-marathons routinely, and also did a ton of indoor rowing). However, life and the years have taken a toll – and today I weighed myself and I am 197.5 pounds at a height of 5’6″ and a half. I do not need a BMI chart to tell me that I am obese – but for the numerically obsessive, my BMI is now 31.4.
