Keep it up Dan. The difficult time of year has passed and now its spring, summer and then skydiving !

Once you get back in the air your motivation will rocket and so will the weight loss.

Blue skies.

I completely agree and thank you! However I got my first shin spints running today so I will have to stick to the eliptical for a bit until they heal up. HELLLOOOOOO ICE.

Yeah it is!!!

So yeah... I was sitting at work last night (I work for Comcast Business Class) and who happens to call into my phone? DAVE DEWOLF! I was like a kid talking to their hero! I fell horrible that I couldn't help him out but it was wicked cool chatting with him. I've always wanted to take his rigging course and rigging is what I've wanted to do in the sport besides skydiving of course.

3 days later the cortisone shot I got is turning my life around. My shoulder feels so much better. a few more days and I can start focusing on the gym again.

Finally. I didn't think my shoulder would ever stop hurting and I was going to have to live with this pain day to day.

Just had surgery last Friday! Haven't lost my resolve just trying to recover so that I can get back in the gym! Still under 250 but not at the magic number of 225 yet.

Shoulder pain is still gone which is great!!

I WILL GET THERE! Angelic

I should be ok in about a week. It was a small procedure.

HOWEVER... I don't want to get into the tunnel until I'm under 240. I have 4 minutes that I got for christmas that I'm holding onto.

I'm using it as a personal goal.

Don't lose too much there are plenty of fast fallers at Pepperell for you to jump with myself included.

hahahahahaha If I wasn't afraid of getting all messed up again than I wouldn't care too much. The new student rigs will be a huge improvement from 2006. Hopefully I can use one of the new ones.

Re: [skydiverbry] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

Well I'm back down to 244! My shoulder pain is back but it's not too bad so I don't think I will go back for Cortisone yet. (unless it gets worse)

they switched my phone times at work which blows since I used to go to the gym during my off phone time and now don't really have time at all.

At least I have been eating correctly.

I should be under 240 by the begining of April and under 230 by May!!

Definitely work. I need to win the lottery. Shit that means I need to play. I'm doing something wrong here. hahahahaha

The pain isn't nearly as bad as it used to be so I'm just going to watch it and see what happens. I honestly think I just sleep on it wrong.

Thanks for the kudos on the weightloss. It sucks never really being hungry but that's definitely paying off! hahahahaha

FINALLY GOT TO SKYDIVE YESTERDAY!!!!

My wife an I moved into a new house so my AFF was out of the question this year due to funds but I was able to get a tandem in!!!! Felt incredible! Pulled, piloted my canopy, and while I was at the door of the plane it was as if I jumped the day before not 7 years ago!!! Going back for a couple more tandems at the end of august and will start my AFF at the beginning of next season! Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement!!!

Re: [GooniesKid] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

Anytime buddy! If I didn't just get a new house in July than I would be a regular licensed skydiver by now as well but until next season I'm just glad to help! lol Wink

I have to say that it felt so much different this time.

After the first tandem and my Cat A and Cat B in 2006 I was amped and couldn't sleep for like a week after each jump. Today I feel more relaxed than I have in years. I think about the jump yesterday and my body makes me take a huge breath and I feel more and more relaxed.

Definitely an awesome feeling and I can't wait until I start my AFF again.

Re: [GooniesKid] This is my resolve. [In reply to] Can't Post

Wasn't resurrecting this thread for no reason...

Started working at my local DZ packing tandems this season! Oh and yeah.... I passed my Cat A on 6/8/2014 and my Cat B on 6/14/2014 with only a couple things to work on which I did correct! I truly can't wait to go again and only wish I had more money and more time to jump more but I'm sure that's everyone's wish here!

I got some fantastic video of my Cat A which can be found in the link below and the camera was having issues for my Cat B which happens so yeah that one was just for me and my incredible instructors!! I can't wait for my C1 and C2!!! I'm 2 steps closer to my A License!

The attachment is my fat ass geared up for my Cat A. (not as fat as I was but still have a lot of work to go before I will run around naked in daylight. hahahaha

Congrats on making your first two AFF jumps.

That's really cool that you've come this far.

And as far as "Naked" goes, get in touch with Jeff (SansSuit). He'll happily induct you into SANS.
