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 Recipe for Christmas All Year Long emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Take a heap of child-like wonder that opens up our eyes
    To the unexpected gifts in life...each day a sweet surprise.
    Mix in fond appreciation, for the people whom we know;
    Like festive Christmas candles...each one has a special glow.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Add some giggles and some laughter, and a dash of Christmas food,
    Amazing how a piece of pie can change our attitude
    Stir it all with human kindness and wrap it up in love and peace,
    Decorate with optimism, and our joy will never cease.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    If we use this healthy recipe,We know we will remember
    To be in the Christmas spirit, even when it's not December.

    "There's moments in your life that make you,
    that set the course of who you're gonna be.
    Sometimes they're little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're not...
    Bottom line is, even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready for the big moments.
    No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
    So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No.
    The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that.
    It's what you do afterwards that counts.
    That's when you find out who you are."
