Hungry Bear, Thirsty Pirate...

Why am I here? Well, Mom and Dad had drunk sex, but we're getting off topic... ;o)

Why am I here on Sparkpeople? I'm gonna say "fried rice for breakfast" and "stretch marks" and leave it at that... ;o)

I'm a big guy who looks like a cross between a bear and a pirate (and I actually perform as both on occasion. Yar!). I'm like a fat Johnny Depp without the good looks. ;o) I'm trying to drop a few pounds for health (not esthetic) reasons, increase my stamina, gain ...

I'm a big guy who looks like a cross between a bear and a pirate (and I actually perform as both on occasion. Yar!). I'm like a fat Johnny Depp without the good looks. ;o) I'm trying to drop a few pounds for health (not esthetic) reasons, increase my stamina, gain some strength, and not die.

I've been very overweight my whole life, and at one time was 400 pounds. I've lost about 150 pounds over the past 20 years (I've been up, down, off, on, and am constantly seduced by food that's in my line of sight), and still have a way to go. I've had a life-long struggle with compulsive eating/lack of will power, and I'm hoping to find some friends, inspiration, and support.

I do cardio and weights 5 days a week, and log my activity here: http://www.fitocracy.com/profile/bigpirate

My hobbies are Hawaiian nose-humming and rhythmic apathy.

Now it's just getting silly...

;o)

Hey Big Guy! Good to hear from you! I miss you when you're not active here! I'm glad that you're keeping up with hiking and workouts. Thanks for the comment on my blog. You REALLY need to see the redwoods someday. It's one of those "bucket list" type things that you'll never forget. Maybe our bear spirits just need to get out in the forest now and then! Lol! I'm lucky to live only an hour away from them and 2 hours from the beach in the same blog.
(((Great Big Bear Hugs)))

Oh I know just how you feel! So many years of coming SO CLOSE with our teams...when Foulke tossed that ball to Mientkiewicz (and yes, I had to look up how to spell it!) in '04 I just sat there with tears running down my cheeks. It was so surreal!

Like you I get into the off-season & keep an eye on the farm boys.

As you can see, I can talk baseball all day & night! I FINALLY got my husband to watch, so that makes me very happy!

Nearlyl hockey season! *sigh* and then I have to live through the trading and worry of the off-season.

Catch ya later!
