I really started getting myself in gear when a very dear friend of mine died recently. He was 40 and overweight. He died of pulmonary embolism. That's not to say it wouldn't have happened anyway but his lifestyle was against him. When I think about the fact that he is gone I'm devastated all over again. We were "diet" buddies and workout partners on and off for more than 10 years. Now I'm doing this for more than just me. I'm doing it for him, I'm doing it to give a healthy example to my stepkids (they are the ONLY kids I'll have). I don't want to just die suddenly because *I* didn't take life seriously.
