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.

Member Since: 6/17/2012

Fitness Minutes: 10,261

My Goals:
To get to a size where I can buy clothing in any store.
I want to fit into an airplane seat, ONE seat.
How about fit on a rollercoaster with my son and ride.
Get off Type 2 diabetes meds and blood


My Program:
Tracking everything that I eat while concentrating not only on calorie goals but lowering bad carb intake and more lean protein.
Using videos here to build up an exercise program.



Personal Information:
I was born in Carlsbad New Mexico in 1962, adopted in Los Angeles in 1964, and in 1971 parents moved to Missouri where I was raised.
I've called Arkansas home since 1985 after bouncing around radio stations as a DJ in Missouri.
Graduated college and was married in 1996 and have one Son, Robert who is 12.


Other Information:
I'm kind of an all around geek, or nerd type. I enjoy working with computers and ham radios, along with watching all flavors of Star Trek. I love Spock with an attitude in the new movie. However, I do have a bad boy side as I also enjoy playing pool and texas hold 'em poker. I love the smile on my Son when he is happy and hope I'm helping himi to grow into a good man. I'm proud of him.

    Thanks for checking up on me! I haven't done my 20 min run yet. emoticon It has been raining here for the last two days! I guess this is just one more reason why I need to go ahead and sign up for that gym membership!? haha! I'm hoping it will ease off in a few hours so I can get it done but if not I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow. I hate waiting though. I feel like if more than 2 days go by I start losing my endurance. I will let you know how it goes when I finally get out there. How has your Monday been going so far? I hope you're having a good day!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog! I finished my two 8 min run intervals when I got home from work yesterday morning (I work 3rd shift) and it was ROUGH! haha! I finished though. I am supposed to do a 20 minute run on Sunday. I'm not being pessimistic but I'm not sure I'll be able to do that. I'm going to do my best and if I feel like I'm going to die after 10 minutes I'm going to take a 2-5 min walk break and then do the other 10 minutes. I'm just going to do the best I can & hope it works out. haha! I totally understand the knee issue. I was worried about my knees because my left one will randomly hurt sometimes, nothing major but it still worried me. I have been lucky so far though that my knee hasn't bothered me. I definitely wouldn't take any chances though if your doc said it wasn't a good idea. I know for sure running will be much easier once I lose some more weight. I was much faster when I was 100 lbs lighter. But I'll get there again! Best of luck to you & thank you again for the well wishes!

    Hey Steve! Great to hear from you. Things are going good for me lately. I made a new year's resolution and so far I'm still sticking with it :) You look like you're doing well, too!
