How did I get here?

So, my first post.  It will probably be boring and drawn out and contain a good bit of information most people do not care about.  However, if it gets me started I will take it and find my rhythm as I go along.  Does a blog really have to be one thing?  Does it always have to be funny or serious or witty or intellectual?  I do not think so, I do not think that any of us are any of those things ALL of the time. So why would a blog be just one thing all the time?

Back to the topic at hand, or “how did I get here?”.  My Blog name is From Here to Me, I want to talk about how I got here and as I continue my blog about where I am going from here, and not just about me, I like to talk about the world around me.

I began my journey to here on January 4, 2012.  On that date I weighed 213 lbs, I was a smoker for 31 years of my life and I was just generally unhealthy.  As of today I have lost 40 lbs (and counting) and have not had a cigarette for 151 days. My journey to here was not just about weight loss and breaking a bad habit it is about changing the way I view myself and the world around me.

One last item before I end this first post.  Yesterday I signed up to run a half marathon on February 24, 2013.  So not so long and drawn out, but you just wait I have plenty more to say.
