Husband and father of 3

I'm 28 years young. I'm 5'11" and I weight 290 pounds. I've started and stopped multiple times but haven't even tried to get healthy in 5+ years. I got to the point that i told myself i wasn't going to worry about it and was just going to enjoy life. That worked great for a while. I was happy with how i was living. Now my children are getting to the ages of doing activities that require some physical effort to participate in and I find myself easily winded. Recently I attempted jumping on a trampoline with them and hit the ground when i bounce in the middle. It's a bit diheartening that I can't enjoy those things with my little ones and I want to live life with them, not just watch them grow. So I am starting this journey again and am excercising regularly and eating better. I'm confident i will stick with it this time. Wish me luck on this change.

    3 very active sons here. and wanting to get in shape for the same reasons. They want to play football or baseball or whatever out in the yard and I get the need for wanting to keep up. It's tough when they are a third of our age!! Good luck on your journey!!!
