let's go back. way back.

this is me on a youth group trip in 1989. i was all of 13 years old. i was just looking through some old scrapbooks and came across this gem and thought i would share it with the world. this was taken somewhere in the middle of oklahoma, i think, on the way to dallas. the girl is beth kriesch, who was several years older than me, and who was also the (i think unknowing) recipient of a huge crush.

i can't believe i was ever that skinny.

greg,
speaking of skinny, are you still on the fitness wagon?

yeah, i'm still committed to my health program (i think it is more a "lose cholesterol" program than a "lose weight" program). there are 10 things that i'm supposed to do everyday, and i usually get 9 or 10 of them. the hardest one for me to do is exercise, because i hate exercise in the cold. however, as the weather warms up, i'm looking forward to getting outside more.

but i am still eating flaxseed, plant sterols, oatmeal, almonds, soy (25 grams a day!), apples, garlic, beans and omega-3 fatty acids almost every day. so i think - really hope - that i have lowered my cholesterol and have a healthier heart. i intend to continue this program for quite some time...
