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!

Ken,
~~~~~~~~~~~~THE 3 STAGES OF LIFE~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. TEENS--you have all the time and energy, but no money.

2. WORKERS--You have all the money and energy, but no time.

3. OLDIES--You have all the time and money, but no energy

LESSON--
Enjoy life and all the things you
have at that moment because you
can't have everything all at once.

emoticon emoticon emoticon ""YOU""" emoticon emoticon emoticon
As you grow up, you learn that the one person that
was never suppose to let you down, probably will.
You will have your heart broken probably more than once,
and every time it's harder.
You might even break hearts, too, so remember
what it felt like when yours was broken.
You'll fight with your best friend, you'll blame a
new love for something an old one did.
You'll cry when time is passing too fast,
and you'll probably lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much,
and love like you've never been hurt.
Because every sixty seconds you spend upset,
is a minute of happiness you can't ever get back.

emoticon ~~~~~~~~~~~~LIFE~~~~~~~~~~~ emoticon
Life changes every minute of every day
You lose friends, you gain friends
You realize your friend wasn't
Ever really your friend at all.
You look for love, you find love, you lose love and
you realize all along that you've been loved.
You laugh, you cry, you laugh so hard that you cry.
You do this, you do that.
You really wish you hadn't done that.
You then learn from that and are glad that you did.
You have your ups
You have your downs.
You see good movies, you see bad movies.
You look at others and wish you were them
You then realize who they are
& are glad that you're you.
You love life, you hate life.

In the end, you find yourself happy
to be living life, no matter what's been thrown at you.

++{}++{}++Have a Warm, Wonderful Wednesday++{}++{}++
