6 foot 2, 240 pounds, 1 back injury that put me out of off-road bike racing for good (back then I weighed 170), and now it looks like I got myself a neck injury. We'll find out just how bad that is tomorrow when I visit with the doc. Got a feeling this one's really bad, the ER doc did an x-ray, said my neck was too messed up to determine if I had a broken neck, and then ran a CAT scan. There's not a lot of good news in that highlighted part. What good news there is, is that the CAT came back with no broken neck at least, but I assuredly have a major problem. Did this doing yoga, a move that my teacher surely should have known was stupid, and frankly one that I should have known was stupid as well. Yoga is great, very hard exercise but if your body has gone to shit working a desk job, as mine has, it might not be the best first exercise to get into.
I need to get down to under 200. Walking and using RunKeeper to keep track of my walking. I recommend this for anybody.
Bottom line: I never watched my weight because it took care of itself. That doesn't last. Watch your weight like a hawk, eat right, exercise like a motherfucker, do the shit you know you're supposed to, or else you could wind up being fat, 47 and looking at the prospect of being an invalid for the rest of your life.
