If you follow the standard weight tables, for my height (five foot three inches), I'm obese. My weight is more than 35 percent more than the max for my size.
Frankly, I'm less concerned about my appearance than my health. I have asthma, and my weight issues significantly affect my control of that condition. I also have joint pain, a bad back, poor stamina, and a general lack of energy.
All of which contribute to my decision to approach fitness with a strong determination to succeed.
I plan to contact some of my best friends from high school, and see whether they will join my effort vto get into The Best Shape of Our Lives.
Feel free to join us.
