I thought I would finally change the text on this page, after nearly a year and a half. A lot has changed.

I have struggled with weight issues my entire adult life, especially since leaving college and settling into life at a desk. I finally started getting concerned after turning 40 (and as I kept gaining weight) when my doctor started raising blood pressure issues. I was struggling with GERD (or something similar) as well, and finally decided it was time to do something.

Someone suggested Spark People so I signed up, I really like the way the entire experience is geared toward being positive and supportive. I need that.

Since starting SP in April of 2010 I've lost 70 pounds and gained a lot of my health back. I'm running four or five days a week and lifting weights and looking for other activities. I've changed my diet almost entirely and made other changes as well. But I still have a way to go.

I had ninety pounds to go, now only 20!

I want my waist to be flat when viewed from the side. No belly hanging down.

My Program:
Lifting weights 3X a week, walking 3X or more a week (usually five). Adding more activities as fitness allows, such as cycling or soccer.
