The New ME! (Version 2.0)

On January 3, 2011 I weighed 282.5 lbs. Being a father of 3, I decided that it was time to make some changes so that I can be around to see ALL of my kids Grow Up!

Fast Forward to January 2, 2012. Well, I now weigh 271.1 lbs.
Good Point - 10 lbs lighter than a year ago!
Bad Point - At one point last year I was in the 240's. A variety of factors led to this huge swing! I used them as excuses until 12/22/2011. That was the morning my dad's pacemaker exploded (Not ...

So, the year 2012 is the year that I make the LIFESTYLE CHANGES that I need to in order to be around for years to come!

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

Hi and welcome to Sparkpeople!

Change is here in 2011.

Not only are your eating habits going to change, your LIFE is going to change.
Your self esteem is going to go up. You will be more motivated and your numbers are going to go down, down, down.
Be excited and remember:
