I have lived in San Francisco for over 20 years. Most of those years I spent as a morbidly obese man that never really got out to see what was beyond my three bedroom flat.
Three years ago, at the ripe young age of 51, I decided to turn my life around and to get healthy. Eating right and my exercise of choice - walking got me to a 184 pound weight loss. At 381 pounds, I couldn't walk two blocks with out exhaustion and unbearable knee and foot pain.
Today, I walk three miles a day and as a result I am discovering all the hidden beauty in this fantastic city. Hills (and there are many in San Francisco) were once my enemy. Now, I find that the hills and terraced gardens are pure eye candy for me and they keep me motivated on my daily journeys.
