My goal remains to weigh zero pounds.

To stand sideways and cast no shadow.

Also to grow in height. Several inches in fact.

Everything helps that nasty BMI number - both the numerator and the denominator!

Fitness Minutes: 9,719

My Goals:
My overall goal is to lose 45% of my starting weight of 281. This will take me down to 155, now that weighing zero seems a little unrealistic.

For 2014 the plan is simple: to lose 1.5 lbs per week. That will bring me to within a few pounds of goal by the end of 2014.

My Program:
1. Treating the Sparky Nutrition Tracker as an unrelenting drill sergeant (i..e, the Soup Nazi).

2. No "seconds", no desserts, and no exceptions. I have become an herbivore, mainly. No veggies or fruits are safe in our house.

3. I track sodium and cholesterol as well. Male and in my 50s, I harbor no illusion over the importance of this stuff too.

4. Gym during the school year, cardio (45 minutes) and strength (20 to 30 minutes), about 4 or 5 days a week. Brisk walks outdoors, as conditions allow, on weekends. Swim laps in the summer, as much as time allows (typically 50 to 100 miles per summer). Yes, I have scales, gills and a waterproof mp3 player.

5. Using the Sparky Activity Tracker and totally floating myself away on roughly 100 oz of water per day. Oh yes, peeing just all the damn time too.

6. Maintain humor throughout the process - absolutely essential!

7. Do this with my wife, Susan818127 also here on Spark. Check h

Personal Information:
My name is Mark. On Spark I am Chief Naysayer and Contrarian

I also am a business founder and owner. I am an environmental consultant and business owner. Check www.alwi.com for all the poop.

It's safe to ask me about it. I'm ALWAYS in sell mode, but you do not need and cannot use what I sell.



Other Information:
Probably there is no more provincial Baltimorean on all of Spark than me.

Can't copy from a feed statement. It doesn't work here, at any rate.
I very much remember boppin' to Mungo Jerry....In the summer time, when the livin' is high, you can reach right up and touch the sky....
