My name is Tony and I am 24 years old. Growing up I was always involved in sports. Some of my first memories were playing T-Ball back when I was just four. I continued on with baseball and introduced ice hockey not too far after. I was always a big kid, but was always in shape. It is kinda weird that being the big kid, I didn’t play football. It’s not because I didn’t want to, but my mom didn’t like the idea. I know, I know, ice hockey was OK but football wasn’t…go figure. I played sports all through high school (ice hockey & tennis) competitively until senior year. A small injury sidelined me for good :-(.
So, I let a year pass with little-no exercise. Senior year ended and shortly after my career at Rutgers began. After one semester I left because I felt like I wasn’t ready to be in school again. I got a job and realized that all this time of inactivity had really taken it’s toll on my body. I made a change. After browsing the interwebs I came across the Men’s Health forum back in late 2004. Before I knew it, a little over a year had passed and I was down 100 lbs. Yeah, I got that fat and still had work to do. But I digress.
I decided that it was time to go back to school. I enrolled again at Rutgers. Between classes and partying…a lot. Fast forward to today. Back to where I started. On August 2, 2010 I started this journey over. I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
