June Update: Still on track. Getting my second wind.

I'm Bobby, a single male from San Francisco, CA and I have been struggling with my weight for about 15 years now. Now that I am over 50, I realize that getting healthy and staying healthy is more important than ever. How can one really enjoy life without good health, right? I quit smoking in Sept of 2008 after over 30 years of that poison and feel much better for it.

I'm Bobby, a single male from San Francisco, CA and I have been struggling with my weight for about 15 years now. Now that I am over 50, I realize that getting healthy and staying healthy is more important than ever. How can one really enjoy life without good health, right? I quit smoking in Sept of 2008 after over 30 years of that poison and feel much better for it.

Based on what I've read on this community website, I am optimistic that I can achieve my goals of shedding fat, building muscle and transition to a healthier lifestyle within a reasonable amount of time, getting the much needed support through the addition of new friends, insight, feedback and inspiration from folks across my spark teams.

I joined up in January of 2009 and had some moderate success, doing very well in the 3rd and 4th quarter. Went on a three week vacation in December and picked up some weight again. Holidays have been very tough for me this year. Too many parties, too much food.

So now... 2010. New year, new decade. My goals are set and obtainable. Now it is time to execute. I stopped drinking wine with my meals, architect-ed a sound strength training program with cardio intervals on alternate days. Do stretching and Yoga once a week and changed my nutrition plan based on what I've learned from reading BFFM - "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle".

HI Bobby, I really did enjoy talking to you...Wild that it was a mistake when I called though...I was trying to call my lawyer and your number was above. Guess it was a GOD send because you sure made my day! Looking forward to getting together but it will have to wait until night school is done. 8 wks and 3 days to go! :) Hugs
