The Boy Scouts of America are taking the phrase ‘Keep Myself Physically Strong’ very seriously. The 2013 National Jamboree, to be held on the new Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, has strict physical requirements for attendance. Those failing to qualify are discouraged from applying. I find myself in an overweight situation. I want to attend this event. I am ‘walkin’ my way to the Jamboree.
The purpose of this blog is to record my progress toward the goal of reducing my current Body Mass Index from 30.6 (in the Obesity range) to the mid-twenties (Normal to Overweight).
Through my wife’s health Plan, I am working with a Wellness Coach. She is aware of my goal.
