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 found this lying around...when are you coming back???
We all came to SparkPeople hoping to find something that would help us change ourselves, and we have. All of the info and guidance you could ask for, but I think we found something worth more than that. Non-judgemental Sparkfriends. People who know exactly the struggles we face. It's important to feel like you're not alone.

Every week when I type my blog, I may come across as crass, rude, funny, angry or indifferent, it all depends on how I feel. I just hope that at least one person reads it and gets something out of it. Whether it cheers them up, makes them feel like they are not alone, or gets them to laugh at my expense, it's all worth it. So cheers to my Sparkfriends, thanks for being there.

Building a better me, one day at a time.

When an "all-nighter" means
not getting up to pee... emoticon
When all the names in my black book
have M.D. after them... emoticon emoticon
When "getting lucky" means
finding my car in the parking lot... emoticon emoticon
When the candles
Cost more than the cake... emoticon emoticon emoticon
I promise you
We'll still be best friends!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
