I just joined

I just joined this site, not as a New Years Resolution - I think they are doomed to fail, but to get a kick in the pants to get back to where I was 5 years ago. I, like many other people, want my 21 year old body back. I am only 26 and I got out of the military because of my weight. I was able to land on my feet like a cat professionally, but I got into the Information Security and Hacking industry for the government, meaning I sit on my rear 8 hours a day and think that caffeine should be its own food group.

I have decided I want to join the reserves as an officer since I just completed my B.S. in IT and have many certifications to be marketable. I long to serve and while I am in the Civil Service now, it is not the same as being in the military. There are benefits to the service and what not but that is not why I desire to get back in.

I have already Declared 2012 to be the "Year of Joe" where I will not only meet my expectations, but exceed them. I need to go from 230lbs to ~185lbs to become eligble to join again. I currently eat bad foods in part because my 1 BR apartment is too small to do anything. I am in the process in closing on a larger place where I will be more apt to have healthy meals.

Any encouragement would be appreciated. You encourage me and I will encourage you!
