A renewed interest in... ME!

OK, so I got on here to lose not only some weight, but the reputation for eating everything in sight at work. Well, I've pretty much gotten rid of the reputation, but I've been hanging around 210# for close to a year now, and this is getting old...

So here I go! Time to make a difference for myself again. I'm just happy that SparkPeople is still here for me to rely on!

Member Since: 1/25/2008

SparkPoints: 11,353

Fitness Minutes: 9,863

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose the gut and feel more energetic. That means losing about 56 pounds and getting into shape. The pictures on my site will soon become my 'before' pictures. I've got a long way to go, so I'm looking for some motivation from my SP teammates and I hope to make a few friends on the way. You can't have too many friends, right! So feel free to contact me.


My Program:
I started with the Henry Ford Weight Management Program, but my insurance only covered one year. I found SP while on that program and used the tools here to help track my progress and give me some motivation. Since Thanksgiving 2008 I've been stuck between 205 - 215#. Henry Ford gave me some basic guidelines but my HMO has left me feeling left out in the cold, on my own, and short of motivation.

For 2010 I'm going to track my nutrition and fitness and get my motivation back up.

Personal Information:
My name is Jay and I live in Highland Michigan. I have THREE grandsons and I'm totally in awe of them. I'm loving watching them grow and all I really want is to be around to love them and see them grow up. My dad died at 52 because of Cholesterol, he never got to see any of his grandkids, and that's just a shame. I'm not going to let that happen to me!

Other Information:
My favorite movie is 'Office Space', I don't read much, except technical papers, but I'm starting to get into books on tape, or really books on my ipod.
