Why I Want to Lose Weight

Let's get started with some vital statistics. I'm 5'9" tall, and weighed in today at 187 pounds. That's me on the right, attempting to take a picture of myself. :)

Since I am tall, I hold my weight well. People would not consider me fat-- probably more like "padded". Mostly, I really don't mind how I look. I like to think I can dress myself decently for my body type, and attempt to look nice with whatever my weight happens to be.

My main reason for wanting to shed the extra pounds I have is, as I said before, for health reasons. I have already had two back surgeries (low back, lumbar region), and am in constant pain. Every extra pound I put on puts additional torque on my back, causing even more pain. I've reached a point where the pain is really limiting my ability to work, play, and enjoy my life.

It is time.
