I'm a 40-something Software Developer in Seattle at a Fortune 500 company you've probably never heard of.
I'm a bit geeky, nerdy, and quirky. I'm completely sarcastic, often
irreverent, occasionally foul-mouthed, and rarely apologetic.
I believe strongly in the importance of humanity and philanthropy.
I'm a Grammar Nazi with virtually non-existent tolerance for
misspellings, poor grammar, and lack of punctuation. (Use a fucking
period and comma, sometimes! It won't kill you!) I'm willing to argue
the use of the Oxford Comma. And yes, I have 'Eats, Shoots & Leaves'
on my bookshelf, if that tells you anything.
Something spectacular happened to my mindset in February 2016 and I committed myself to getting serious about being healthy!
I'm not 'dieting', I'm changing my lifestyle and creating a whole new me! I'm taking a pragmatic approach and facing it one day, one meal, one bite at a time!
I've promised myself to never be in denial or hide from my weight again so I post it for all to see. It keeps me accountable and facing reality.

I have two mantras:
"It's better to be hated for who you are, than loved for who you're not."
"I know what it feels like to give up. Now, I want to know what it feels like not to."
