Once more into the breach, dear friends...

Update: 04/18/2014.
I have cracked the code. I broke through my long-time wall at 200. I now weigh about 193, depending on the day. I've been concentrating on cardio, an hour a day, and weight training, 3 days a week. I ran my first 10K race on 4/14/14; Clyde's 36th annual 10K. It was awesome. I can't wait to run my next race.

I'm back.

I'm back.
Last summer, on 14 August 2011, I arrived in the Middle Eastern nation of Qatar. I was in Qatar for 4 months, returning to the USA on December 11. Shortly thereafter, my wife, daughter and I went on a Cruise to the Bahamas.
So, doing the math, it's been 142 days since I did anything on the SP website. That was long enough.

I'm a 48 year old guy, retired from the Army in 2005 and shortly thereafter developed diabetes. I'm about 50 pounds overweight and would really like to lose it.

So I've been doing SparkPeople.com for about a month now and I have to say I LOVE it. It's been called the Facebook of weight-loss and that is a very good description but it's not entirely accurate. I use FB quite a bit and I'd estimate that at least a third of things I post on FB get flamed or criticized. On SP, there's no flaming. (at least not yet) There's only positive feedback and supportive criticism. SP is everything that FB SHOULD be.
I realized that I've lost 6 pounds on SP now. A couple of years ago, this would be depressing. Back in 2002, I joined Weight Watchers in Colorado Springs, CO. My first week in WW I lost 9 pounds! The people at my meeting were blown away, for a second at least, then they started making excuses, all of which were probably true (water weight, men lose weight easier, etc) but NONE of them made me feel good or proud or anything but cheating. Needless to say, I didn't stick with WW.
Anyway, this is beginning to sound like a Blog, which was not my intention. I just wanted to express how much I like SP and am confident and hopeful that this time, I will reach my goal and target weight.

Target weight: 180


My Program:
My program consists of 60 minutes of cardio every day and weight training 3 days a week; MWF. On non-weight days, I do the treadmill with an incline of at least 10 and a speed of 4 mph, for 60 minutes. On weight days, I take the incline down to 9 or so.
I may be changing things drastically soon. I'm thinking about training for a half marathon, in which case, my schedule would reflect a LOT of running.
