Tinman on a trek

I never thought that I would ever be obese, nor did I think it would be difficult to lose weight. A lifestyle change is definitely in order. By 7/17/12 I am 227 pounds and feeling much healthier these days. I don't know if I still qualify as obese, but of course I'm still overweight. What I've learned about healthy living makes this journey well worth the sacrifice I have made so far. 8/30/12 I am 220 lbs. and my clothes no longer fit me well.

I never thought that I would ever be obese, nor did I think it would be difficult to lose weight. A lifestyle change is definitely in order. By 7/17/12 I am 227 pounds and feeling much healthier these days. I don't know if I still qualify as obese, but of course I'm still overweight. What I've learned about healthy living makes this journey well worth the sacrifice I have made so far. 8/30/12 I am 220 lbs. and my clothes no longer fit me well. My wife has joined me on the road to fitness which helps me tremendously. 1/31/13 I am 214 pounds and very hopeful that I will reach my goal of 200 pounds by the end of February. 5/6/13 Well I'm back up to 218 with a 5K on the horizon, but there is a good chance that I will only walk in it. I told my wife that if she will walk in it that I would walk with her. I prepared to run in this 5K, but it's more important to me that she is with me during this journey then reaching some personal time goal. (at the most I could shave about 5 minutes off last years time).
6/26/13-I actually did shave more then 5 minutes off the 5K run. I ran it in 38 minutes. I also continued to step up my running as a workout tool running 6 days straight and dropping 5 lbs.
I don't see running as a lifestyle change (although maybe it is for now), because I don't think that it is sustainable over the years as we get older. I would like to see some really great meals added to my nutrition. This is what I think will be the best lifestyle change for this tinman.
On 1/29/14 I joined another program to help me on this journey; a popular one that cost per weekly session. I had to laugh when I went to their website. I am convinced that Sparkpeople is a very special community that others would clearly like to duplicate (but can't). Anyway, I hope that this program gives me renewed interest in this journey.
2/19/14-it is clear that I have to learn and apply the principles of healthy living. Lately I have not been doing much of either. I've heard others say that sometimes life gets in the way of this journey, but I say that it's all part of the journey. My marriage, my children (all adults), my job and more all impact my emotions, sometimes in a way that hinders or helps me on the road to good health. 3/12/15 I'm not sure if I have really returned after 366 days away, but it sure felt good to log in.

My Goals:
I would like to one day weigh 190 lbs. which was my best weight when I was in the military. I would like to have a lot of new and healthy meals added to my daily menu. I would like to encourage my children to live healthy lifestyles.

My Program:
My wife and I attend the local health club 3 times a week. I run 3 times a week when the weather permits. I keep emergency foods on hand at home so that I don't have a calorie meltdown when I come through the door after work.

Personal Information:
I am a Tinknocker (not it's professional name-do the research:) by trade and I have been all of my adult life. I adore my wife of more then 30 years and we have 3 darling children that are now grown. I am a man of faith that gives God all of the praise for what he has done for me.

Other Information:
If I can help you, I would like to very much. If I have insulted you, I promise that it was not intentional. If I failed to encourage you, please give me another chance. I want us all to succeed at this.
