New guy here in Virginia

Recommended Posts

New to the board and getting introduced to skydiving.

I'm a big active guy (military), I was 272# in June and now at 256# thanks to my doctor and specialist.

This wasn't even a possibility for me a month ago as I couldn't lose weight. Now that the problem is figured out after years, and I'm on my way to losing the weight to jump at 230#. I can't wait to jump for my first time tandem and I am sure AFF will follow.

I have been reading as much information as I can from USPA SIM and this site. There is lots of knowledge to learn.

Credit for the drive to meet this goal goes to a friend after seeing the amazing pics of free fall taken from her and her boyfriends cameras. Unreal and looks like a rush. I hope she is able to go on my first jump it would be awesome!

Welcome to the forums! I hope you are able to reach your weight goal before the cold weather sets in. Best of luck!

because she will lay some keepdown on you faster than, well, really fast. ~Billvon
