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!

Ability may get you to the top
but it takes character to keep you there!
Be more concerned with your character
than with your reputation.
Your character is really what you are
while your reputation is merely
what others think you are.
No one is born happy
but all of us are born with
the ability to create happiness.
So today make others happy.

Hey Ken thanks for the blog comments, Tim does have a way of cutting to the 'punch 'line!!! All the bits were free, though I did abscond with Hubby's glue !!!

Though I'm not sure if I'm ready yet for shorts, maybe next summer. I have seen a pattern for a 'peg' bag made from denim shorts ...hum.. another project looms... LOL

Thanks for the comment on my MOAN of a blog. I appreciate it! I know you have had more than your fair share of the pain factor and it really does suck when it sets ya back for a spell. Anyway, I was thinking about that 12 pounds that my scale says I loss, yet I gotta question that number simply because my scale tends to lie any old time it chooses. :-)
Still, I have lost weight (whatever the actual real number is) emoticon and I 'm still tracking. I guess what bummed me out this week was that damn spark streak. I just thought it might be wise to allow a person to reset to their own spark streak according to whatever might be going on - or not going on in in their life. Just don't think we need BIG BROTHER determining everything for us. OK.... LOL .... don't wanna work myself up into another spark streak bitch session. emoticon

Hope you have a very Happy Easter! emoticon
