Embracing The Possibilities

Reached my highest weight of 509 lbs. in May of 2009. I was 30 years old and knew I had to make a change. I set a goal to reach 299 lbs. I lost 121 lbs in less than a year only to gain 78 lbs back. May 5, 2012, I weighed 466 lbs and began my journey to 299 again. I reached 299 lbs. on July 15, 2013! Now I am on to bigger and better goals!

I am a single Dad of 3 and I needed to make changes in my life! I am using Spark to aid me in the process!

At the beginning of my journey, back on May 5, 2012, I had 167 lbs. to lose! Now, 55 weeks later, I have lost 153.8 lbs. and have just 12.8 lbs. more to go.


I AM DOING THIS!

I AM BEING THE CHANGE!

I AM EMBRACING THE POSSIBILITIES!

emoticon Take Care Of Yer Friends emoticon
Friend is a word that I donít throw around
Though itís used and abused, I still like the sound.
I save it for people whoíve done right by me
And I know I can count on if ever need be.

Some of my friends drive big limousines
Own ranches and banks and visit with queens.
And some of my friends are up to their neck
In overdue notes and canít write a check.

Theyíre singers or ropers or writers of prose
And others, God bless Ďem, canít blow their own nose!
I guess beiní friends donít have nothiní to do
With talent or money or knowiní whoís who.

Itís a comfíterbul feeliní When you donít have to care
ĎBout choosiní your words or beiní quite fair
ĎCause friendsíll just listen and let go on by
Those words you donít mean and not bat an eye.

It makes a friend happy to see your success.
Theyíre proud of yer good side and forgive all the rest
And that ainít so easy, all of the time,
Sometimes I get crazy and seem to go blind!

Yer friend just might have to take you on home
Or remind you sometime that youíre not alone.
Or ever so genfiy pull you back to the ground
When you think you can fly with no one around.

A hug or a shake, whichever seems right
Is the high point of giviní, Iíll tell ya tonight,
All worldly riches and tributes of men
Canít hold a candle to the worth of a friend.

Hello Brad emoticon
emoticon emoticon ~~~~LIFE BEFORE A COMPUTER~~~~ emoticon emoticon
An "application" was for employment
A "program" was a TV show
A "cursor" used profanity
A "keyboard" was on a piano
A "memory" was something that you lost with age
A "CD" was a bank account
A "log on" was adding wood to a fire
A "hard drive" was a trip on the road
A "mouse pad" was where a mouse lived
A "web" was a spider's home
And a "virus" was the flu!!
emoticon emoticon ~~ENJOY YOUR COMPUTER~~ emoticon emoticon

I don't know why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.
When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.
