Fat, Happy, & Fifty

by Marc Benzakein

Published December 2, 2017 in Health

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been inspired by many people within the Community who are doing things about their health, both mental and physical.

This year I turn 50. I have spent the last few months getting into the best shape I’ve been in, in almost twenty years. It’s been a journey that included depression, programs that didn’t work, burnout, and unhealthy behaviors that impacted not only myself, but my family and my work.

In this talk, I plan to get down to the nitty gritty of what I went through, how I overcame it, and what I’m doing to continue down the path of both physical and mental health. It will be very personal, raw, honest, possibly uncomfortable at times (for me), and hopefully inspirational, as I plan to share not only my own story, but the stories of some of the others within our Community who have been through their own journey (with their permission, of course).
