My Goals:
My goal is to reach 224 pounds by Jan.14, 2008. So far by 4/1/07 I have lost 36 pounds. ..........................................




1st Short Term Goal was to break the 300 mark and be at 299 by April 11, 2007. Did that on March 31st.
BEEN HERE AND DONE THIS!!! WOOHOO!!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::

:::::::::::::::::::::::

NEXT SHORT TERM GOAL.
To be at 284 pounds by May 21st. That will be my 50 pound loss mark.



(I will be adding another short term goal as soon!)



Although my ultimate goal is 224, I told my wife if I decide to go on and reach 200 pounds I would reward myself with a new Harley. C'MONNNNNN WEIGHTLOSS!!!








My Program:
My weight loss so far has just consisted of being more concious of what I eat and better portion sizes. Along with that I have ben rowing and working out on my Gazelle which I enjoy. I had knee surgery twice and this has been low impact on the knees. Also part of my weight loss program is to drink AT LEAST 8 glasses of water a day and lay off the soda (plain or diet) and any alcohol except for an occassional glass of vino. Less pizza, less beer, less chocolate, and definately less "fast food". NO..... I don't want it "Supersized" I DID THAT MYSELF ALREADY. NOW I WILL "UNDO" IT!

Personal Information:
GO BUCKS!!!!!!

GO TRIBE!!!!!!!!!

GO BROWNS!!

Other Information:
Favorite Books I've read recently.
"Stop Digging Your Grave With a Knife and Fork" by Gov. Mike Huckabee of Ark.
I read this one twice and highlighted items the second time I read it. Great advice in this book.

Hey Buddy! Thanks for that really AWESOME comment you left on my blog. I appreciate it very much!
So, I see you're considering going for a walk ..... right out there in this life's-energy DRAINING humidity! Well, I sure hope if you do go, you take some water with ya and stay hydrated. I love to walk, but I just can't do the humidity. Like, I seriously DIE.
Dang, how's come there ain't a dead corpse emoticon????-I mean, good grief, they give us all kinds of stuff like: emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Yeh, the kind of stuff that is supposed to kill us .... And even throw in images like this, which I guess we are supposed to STRIVE to emulate emoticon ...... but yet they can't provide us with one dead corpse?!!!-(what is happening here?!!!)-(honestly, I am bout ready to riot these emoticons!)

Okey dokey, Stay focused. Stay cool. Stay hydrated and ... Stay on TRACK! After all, you got all these wondrous emoticons to encourage you along the way.

Hiya! Thanks for the comment on my blog - "What's Next America". I have been away from my computer for the past week and just saw that you had stopped by. I really do appreciate what you said and that you are of the same mind set. I do believe our number is greater than we ever imagined, although there are still a whole lot of "sheep" out there - willingly being lead over the nearest cliff while claiming the people leading them are Gods.
Anyway, I hope you won't mind my adding you as a buddy ....... cuz ya know I'm gonna do it no matter what! emoticon
(see how politically incorrect I am) emoticon

Hope you're having a great week! emoticon

Crete-I'm still rowing every day. My new goal for 2010 is to row 10,000 meters a day. I slacked off at the first half of last year, but now I'm recommitted and enjoying it more than ever. I hope that you are doing well.
