    New state, new home, new job, new life!

    At one time, not that long ago, I was a beast. Now I am a saggy man boobed pile of shit, but my mind is finally right again. I weigh 265lbs. My cardiovascular system is shot to hell. I have been smoking two packs of cigarettes a day, drinking at the pub after work with friends 3 to 5 days a week, and eating total dogshit for the past 2 years.

    Well, here I am looking around at my life, now. Things a getting better and better every day. Hard work is paying off, but if I don't get healthy again, I am not going to live long enough to enjoy it.

    I have been eating clean and avoiding alcohol, tobacco, and drugs for 4 days now. This has been no easy task. I am alone in a place where I know no one, and the only thing keeping me going is will power. My goal is to make friends that are in line with the habits I want to have, and avoid the type of people that are a bad influence. I guess the best part about starting a new life is you get to lay the foundation.

    Well here goes the first brick.

    Good for you-keep working towards your goals. It takes a lot of guts to turn your life around like that.

    Good luck, sounds like we both are getting back into it. I let myself waste away for almost 6 yrs before just lately deciding to suck it up and get my ass in gear.

    New places are hard but stick with it and enjoy this chance to create a new you.

    Good luck Kelju. you deserve some good omen in your life dude. have fun starting a hospitals IT infrastructure. that is a daunting task you have there. getting hospitals to move away from paper is on par with fixing problems in the middle east in my opinion.

    I took a break from alcohol this year. Haven't had a drop and don't miss it especially. Cortisol somethingsomething.

    Success to you, KelJu.

    you're a fucking hero for even making the decision to give all that stuff, man. Most people won't let themselves realize its even a problem, but not you!

    You became a gym-monster before, and theres no doubt in mind you'll get there again. Your old journal was a great read and an inspiration to me when i was starting up with training so i'm looking forward to this one too

    You have a brand new slate for yourself, take advantage! On the downside, it'll be a challenge to have EVERYTHING in your life change. Treat yourself right and enjoy the changes, don't stress over them. And congrats and good luck!

    Good to have you back in journal land. Sounds like you've developed a great perspective on where you are at and want to go. Just keep moving in that direction man, just keep progressing little by little.

    Your diet will set you free.

    I hate exercise, I love training.

    Absolute best of luck. About 12 years ago, I did the same thing. Moved to a new state, new girlfriend, new job, new life...

    I know what that is like, and I know it took extreme balls for you to make those changes.

    About 30 minutes from New Orleans. The area is nice, and the people are so much cooler than Alabamians. It is easy to talk to people. The women situation is better over here, too. The women on average, are much more attractive.


    Thanks for the support everyone. This is truly a one of a kind community. I'll start posting some stats once I get a program built and executed. Right now, I am going through some of the nastiest DOMS ever. I have been hitting the gym and jogging most days. My main goal first is to try and strengthen my cardiovascular system, before anything else. Weights are supplemental to the cardio.

    Doing great other than I am in severe pain. The DOMS is really set in now in every muscle in my body. Yesterday, it stopped raining for a bit, so I went for a jog. It started raining again, so I took a shortcut back and got lost. I ended up running off and on for about an hour trying to find my way back home in the rain. Stupid move on my part, but one hell of a workout.
