Yeah, so, 6', got back into paintball after <cough cough a couple of decades cough cough> as both being fun and a way to lose weight.
I was 346 lbs.
Here we are, 1.5 years later, and I'm at 250. I still have a ways to go...but I'm also way better than I was. It was *fun* to say things like "why is the fat guy the only one up at the 50?" and use words like "sprint" and "run" again. I hadn't used those words since high school.
You gas up the marker, put on the mask, and walk onto the field. It doesn't matter that you failed a test, your girlfriend broke up with you the night before, or that you just had a bad day at work. This is your heaven on earth. Live it and play it as if there was no tomorrow.
