Update 9/13/12: As many of you know the last few weeks have been rough for me. I hit the 100lbs lost mark on 8/11/12 and left for a week long Alaskan cruise the next day. I walked a ton but came home 12 lbs up! My grandmother passed away while I was on vacation and once I was home I was busy clearing out her apartment. I lost 5 lbs that first week back a couple more the next week. But I was hit with some depression and stress issues and my weight went back up to 226. I'm pretty much over the ...
Update 9/13/12: As many of you know the last few weeks have been rough for me. I hit the 100lbs lost mark on 8/11/12 and left for a week long Alaskan cruise the next day. I walked a ton but came home 12 lbs up! My grandmother passed away while I was on vacation and once I was home I was busy clearing out her apartment. I lost 5 lbs that first week back a couple more the next week. But I was hit with some depression and stress issues and my weight went back up to 226. I'm pretty much over the depression, but on 9/5/12 my mom had a full hip replacement and came home 3 days later. So I am now acting as caretaker for her for a while. Getting in my fitness minutes while helping my mom and trying to finish 3 classes for school has been difficult. I'm finding it hard to get myself motivated to do anything. I'm trying to just let it roll off of my back but it's not so easy.

Update 3/25/12: Been pretty stagnant for the last 3 months, with only minor losses. The last 3 weeks have been rough, scale not working and life just feeling messed up, I know I've gained weight, I can feel it. So it's time for changes. I've changed my name to King_Slayer, I'm on a mission to slay the kings of Apathy, Lethargy, Poor Nutrition and Weakness. Changed my ticker as well to reflect my new starting point. My blog post titled WK 50 has more details.

My original About Me:
My name is Ken. I am a 41 year old single father who has let himself go. I was an athlete in my 20's until I herniated 2 discs in my lower back. Within a year I had put on 60 lbs. and in the subsequent 15 years I have added almost 40 more.
I am using the site to help me track my diet and keep me focused.
UPDATE: 12/31/2011 38 weeks in and I'm down 68.4 lbs.
UPDATE: 6/25/2011---11 weeks in and I'm down 31 lbs!

I have distant cousins that live in Turlock! Small world. Be sure to let me know if you ever get into Lake county. It would be fun to meet a fellow Sparker face to face.

Have a great day, Ken!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April .The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below...

If the shelves are dusty and the pots don't shine, it's because I have better things to do with my time. ANONYMOUS
