6 May 2008

In high school, 1978-1981, I was a long-distance bicycle rider, marathon runner, and long-time skier (since the age of four).

At university, 1981-1985, I continued the running, sometimes skiing, and SCUBA diving. I became a PADI Rescue Diver, Deep Diver, and finally a Divemaster (a position I actively filled for a bit more than ten years, in Boston, California, and Hawai'i). I was about 180 pounds, skinny, even after the fitness conditioning of spending two summers in the U. S. Army ROTC, at Fort Wood (1981) and Fort Bragg (1982).

In San Francisco, from 1986 until my children Isaac and Lila were born, I walked all around the city, practiced Aikido, and enjoyed really good food. I wasn't 180 pounds any more, a product of the extra calories and my late-maturing frame. (At my five-year high school reunion I was voted Most Changed, and they meant it.)

You: On A Diet So here it is in May 2008 and Lila and I have about seventeen months until our Hapkido black belt test. I want to shed some of these extra pounds, increase my cardiovascular fitness (for sparring), and get closer to my optimal weight.

I'm working on it. Increasing daily walks and decreasing daily caloric intake (via a book entitled , by Michael F. Roizen, MD, and Mehmet C. Oz, MD). The Hapkido remains a constant.

Here's my progress:

More to come.
