Sins of the father: I don't want to be like my father who is currently 51 and close to 400 lbs.
There aren't many out there that want to be like their parents. If you have good models for parents and you do want to be like them, I commend you. Me, no desire to be like my father. now there are some traits of his that I can't escape: similar personalities, natural charisma, a certain way with the ladies, and the shape of my forehead (honest!), but for the things I can avoid I work hard for it.
I've always been big. At the age of 14, I clocked in the start of football season at 319 lbs! I started wrestling after that season and went from 309 to 265 by season's end. Being that it was wrestling, my weightless methods were extreme, rapid, and have had some long lasting effects. The greatest effect was the knowledge that I can do it! I can endure intense training sessions, a strict diet, and a commitment to a goal!
in the years sense high school (class of 2003) I let that slide. When my wife was pregnant with our daughter (2011) I peaked back up to 320. I see those baby shower pictures on our computer screensaver and I say "I never want to look like that again!" I started working out even harder after she was Osborn, putting in an AM session and a PM session. I committed to be under 300 by my birthday and hit my goal. That's tough since I'm a JAN baby so I had to make it through the holidays.
Getting back to my father, now that I have kids of my own, I want to set a good example for good eating habits and a healthy lifestyle. I want to hug them and not have a huge belly in my way, I want to get off the couch without having to rock first! And truthfully, I want to be the hot dad that the mommies at the playground talk about. I stay motivated by remembering why I'm doing what I do, what I want from it, and the benefits it'll bring like a longer, healthier life. My past stays present in my mind so I can be better in my future.
