At the beginning of this year, I decided that 2009 was the I was going to get serious about losing weight and getting healthy. Being the wonderful husband that he is, James decided to do it with me. We joined a gym, started eating better, and began changing our lives.
James started working out at the gym, and started running on the treadmill. Once the weather got nice, the treadmill progressed to outside, and before I knew it, he was running on a regular basis. He has now registered for the Waterloo Classic 10k race on Father's Day (June 21st), and is talking about training for a marathon.
Since we began this journey 6 months ago, James has lost about 50 pounds, and is a lean, mean running machine! He has gone from an XL to a Medium, from a 38/40 pant to a 34, and now needs an entirely new wardrobe!
I am so proud of what he has accomplished, and how great he is doing with his goals! I know it will be only a matter of time before he is running that marathon, on his way to trying for Boston!
