I’m Fat… Time To Do Something About It.

This is a new section of my site. It’s going to be devoted to my fitness and weight-loss.

Disclosure

In the interest of full disclosure, I am helping Mark Vandzura of GymGuyz of Greater Bucks with marketing. But with that in mind, I really am fat. As of today I’m 230.4 lbs. I’m 5' 10 1/2". The height won’t change, but the weight will go down. So, it’s a win win. Okay on to the post…

Seth, The Mesomorph

I’ve always been a bit husky. My mother calls me a mesomorph. Regardless, I always had decent metabolism until I hit my 30’s, got married, had a kid. The usual bullsh!t. Not making excuses, just a fact of life.

I’ve had bad cholesterol my whole life. My triglycerides have always been high. Due to this and not being the best with my health, I’m Type-2 Diabetic.

When I first found out, I dropped 20 lbs in a month and started eating better, but the laziness set in again. I got complacent and well, I have an A1C test this week and a doctor appointment next week and I’m not looking forward to that conversation. As of right now, I’m all diet controlled, my goal is to stay that way. Seriously.

The Plan

Fomer Lieutenant Commander Mark "Spark" Vandzura

I’m going to start working with my good friend and personal trainer former Navy Lieutenant Commander Mark “Spark” Vandzura of Gym Guyz of Greater Bucks. He’s going to kick my butt back in to shape.

I’m going to check in here regularly to record my progress.

My hope is that by doing it publicly, I’ll have the motivation to keep it up and not get lazy again. It’s not just about getting fit and healthy. It’s about making a lifestyle choice.

Let’s do this Mark.
