Camping is fun...but not when I ache because I'm not fit...I am going to loose this extra weight.





I want to enjoy beach bummin' with my kids to the fullest.

Damon wanted to drop this dog food off his body! Yes, my brother had always told me I'm carrying around a 50 pound sack of dog food all the time...and he was right. I was carrying more than that, actually...but I now know how good it feels to finally put it down! I got down to 224 in October. Now I'm plateaued at 224-226, and going to kick it up and get it going again. (1/4/2008)
Well, it took until November 2008 to get it back on....now I'm back here in January 2010 with renewed ...

My Goals:
I hope to gradually lose this extra weight to reduce the stress on my knees, and my lungs. I've had so much trouble with congestion and breathing this winter, and would have licked it easier if I had been in better shape.

My Program:
I'm making my wife my primary partner but plan to invite my daughters and my son to urge me on. I want to see their lives unfold as they grow older, and God-willing, be around for grandchildren!

Personal Information:
We're JRT (Jack Russell Terrier) fans and love the outdoors and yardwork, camping and hunting & especially, I love fly-fishing. I know all those interests will be difficult if I don't lose this weight and get in shape.

Happy Birthday Damon! Christmas birthdays are weird aren't they? Well I hope you have a super day too. I peeked at your gallery and you are a gardener too! I love flowers and my husband loves puppies. Congratulations on losing so much in the first year. You are awesome.

Damon, I absolutely LOVE your pond & the path work! That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen someone create on their own.

Damon--Looking at your ticker, I see YOU are almost halfway to your goal!!! Keep up the great work--you're doing terrific! Thanks for the comment on my page. I didn't lose all my weight with SparkPeople--I started 4 years ago and basically used South Beach. I lost most of my weight the first year and a half, and have been see-sawing/yo-yo-ing for a couple of years now. I joined SP to break through my plateau--I have found that South Beach works as an eating plan for me, but the support and friendships I have on SP are the absolute greatest! I "fell off the wagon" as far as my eating and exercise plans over the last year, but I'm back on track now, and I really hope to see that ticker start moving further to the RIGHT!!! I'm on the Gardening team, too, so I'll see you around!

Christy :)
