Update 9/13/12: As many of you know the last few weeks have been rough for me. I hit the 100lbs lost mark on 8/11/12 and left for a week long Alaskan cruise the next day. I walked a ton but came home 12 lbs up! My grandmother passed away while I was on vacation and once I was home I was busy clearing out her apartment. I lost 5 lbs that first week back a couple more the next week. But I was hit with some depression and stress issues and my weight went back up to 226. I'm pretty much over the ...
Update 9/13/12: As many of you know the last few weeks have been rough for me. I hit the 100lbs lost mark on 8/11/12 and left for a week long Alaskan cruise the next day. I walked a ton but came home 12 lbs up! My grandmother passed away while I was on vacation and once I was home I was busy clearing out her apartment. I lost 5 lbs that first week back a couple more the next week. But I was hit with some depression and stress issues and my weight went back up to 226. I'm pretty much over the depression, but on 9/5/12 my mom had a full hip replacement and came home 3 days later. So I am now acting as caretaker for her for a while. Getting in my fitness minutes while helping my mom and trying to finish 3 classes for school has been difficult. I'm finding it hard to get myself motivated to do anything. I'm trying to just let it roll off of my back but it's not so easy.

Update 3/25/12: Been pretty stagnant for the last 3 months, with only minor losses. The last 3 weeks have been rough, scale not working and life just feeling messed up, I know I've gained weight, I can feel it. So it's time for changes. I've changed my name to King_Slayer, I'm on a mission to slay the kings of Apathy, Lethargy, Poor Nutrition and Weakness. Changed my ticker as well to reflect my new starting point. My blog post titled WK 50 has more details.

My original About Me:
My name is Ken. I am a 41 year old single father who has let himself go. I was an athlete in my 20's until I herniated 2 discs in my lower back. Within a year I had put on 60 lbs. and in the subsequent 15 years I have added almost 40 more.
I am using the site to help me track my diet and keep me focused.
UPDATE: 12/31/2011 38 weeks in and I'm down 68.4 lbs.
UPDATE: 6/25/2011---11 weeks in and I'm down 31 lbs!

emoticon emoticon emoticon BITS OF THOUGHT ABOUT PARKING emoticon emoticon emoticon

"Always look at the brighter side of things..whenever a car is stolen, it creates another parking place"

"One of the best bargains you can get these days is parking what's left on the other fellow's dime"

"A hick town is where you can park as long as you want to, but don't want to."

"Once it was ambition that kept people on the move. Now it's NO PARKING signs.

emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~~Tomorrow~~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

When a man says he is going to do this or that tomorrow, ask him what he did yesterday.

What a fine world this would be, if today we did as well as we expect to do tomorrow.

Be as kind as you can today. Tomorrow you might not be here.

Thank you bro. Do not worry, I am doing nothing for now. I am resting (yes I an actually do nothing!)

First thing on my list is to rest. Second thing is to find a way to change jobs. I would love to be able to quit and never go back to a job where after 10 years of working there I receive so little compassion.

Have I told you how much it means to me to have you as a bro? Just in case I haven't, I will say this. Thank you for being there for me.
