I've been overweight my entire life, but recently had an epiphany that I control my health. I love to listen to music, read, and follow sports, and hope to learn to love exercise. I'm a computer guy for a small school district in Arkansas. Favorite sports teams include the St. Louis Cardinals, K.C. Chiefs, and the Arkansas Razorbacks. I've also spent over 30 years behind a microphone in the radio business.

I'm proud of him.

    I never learn Steve - the numbers looked wrong to me so I backtracked and what I found is 2 people must have posted at the same time - both took the 15 for No Salt and both had totals of 60.

    Sorry for the confusion Steve - I'll mind my own "beeswax" next time - - - until I forget again emoticon emoticon

    Onward and Downward!

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Winter challenge will be getting started the beginning of December. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meat your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Fall we had a World Series and a Haunted House. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon or let me know and I can send you an invite. Then sign up on the waitlist.
