Happy birthday dad

Today would have been my dads 60th birthday. He died at the age of 55 from a heart attack whilst in hospital. He was very overweight and had been for at least 20 years. He had also recently become diabetic. Being overweight myself I'm trying to take this opportunity to get fit and lose some weight. I don't want to be in the same position as my dad, but until now I was heading that way.

The stark reality of where my health could be heading is bringing tears to my eyes as I type. I loved my dad but that's one part of him that I don't wish to follow in his footsteps.

I want to enjoy the time I have with my family and I don't want health or fitness to get in the way of that.

Happy Birthday Dad.
