08/25/2014 - I am back. I am going to restart my journey. I am planning on losing weight and making healthier choices. I do this for my family.

10/3/11 Update: I have restarted my journey yet again. I have been doing the site BLC, and I am loving it. I am doing more exercises, and even though I can't see much of a change on the scale, I can see some toning actually going on with my arms and legs, so the strength training must be working. I have been active with my kids playing and sports life, and I have been able to enjoy a nice run every week.

Update: Well, I have gained a couple of pounds, but I have still been exercising regularly, so I think I need to change my eating habits again. It is okay though, I know that I can get through this, and still achieve what I want. I am still active and am enjoying my time with the kids on my days off and after work playing, coaching, and motivating my family to do the same.

I have lost a total of 70 lbs since starting my journey!! I still have a few more to go, but I am stoked about losing so much weight. I can play with my children and not get winded, I can jog over a mile, and I can last a gig without getting winded.

My Goals:
I intend to lose the weight that I have gained over the past 10 years from overeating, eating late, and being lazy. I want to live healthy and make sure that I can keep up with my children.

My Program:
I am exercising: walking, strength, hopefully soon get a bike.
I am eating healthier: more veggies, less fat.
I am being more active.

Personal Information:
My name is Josh, I live in Pasadena Texas, which is east of Houston. I have a lovely wife and 4 children total; a 19 year old son from a previous relationship, a 8 year old daughter, 6 year old son, and a 3 year old son. I love all my children dearly and I want to live healthier and be active more, so I can have a chance to be around longer for them. I know that I cannot guarantee it, but by living healthier, I am giving myself a better chance.

Other Information:
I play saxophone in a funk band and play sax in a r&b/blues band also. I've heard that playing an instrument can count as burning calories...which with the funk band I can agree with.
