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!

Well, it's been a million years (or 24 hours) since I stopped by, yet you are still MIA. Well, don't be taking too much more time off, but do take off all the time that you need. We're here awaiting the King_Slayer's return - and return he surely will.

Hope you're doing OK, but missing all of us like crazy! emoticon

Don't mean to sound pushy - but -
GET YOUR ARSE BACK HERE- NOW!!!

Yeah, I have ulterior motives. So what?!

I am ready to start being accountable and need someone to be accountable to.

Are you a good example for me to follow?
Hell no!
emoticon

Are you the best role model here at SP?
Hardly!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Are you someone whose opinion, advice and support I value and need?
emoticon

OK, yeh, kinda.
emoticon

I mean, a little bit, maybe.
emoticon


Well, maybe more than most, but not like it's a critical element.
emoticon

OK, maybe it is somewhat critical to me and my success, but it's not like over the top critical.
emoticon

It's maybe just a bit important that you come back NOW ... but the world won't end if you don't.
emoticon

But then again it might.
emoticon

OK, come back when you're ready - but please make it sooner than later.

You are MISSED, Buddy emoticon

- (Well, KINDA) - emoticon

a lot! emoticon

emoticon Hope to see ya again soon ...

Ken,
For all Dad's ""Happy Father's Day""
I want to share with you a quote about Fathers'. I came across.
Fathers Quote ~ "Top Ten Favorite Sayings"

1. When I was your age..
2. A little bit of dirt never hurt anyone.
3. Go ask your Mother
4. Were you raised in a barn?
5. You don't know what hard work is.
6. It builds character.
7. Don't make me stop this car!!
8. You're grounded till you're thirty.
9. Money doesn't grow on trees.
10. Because I said so.

My Dad said ALL of these things many, many times, as I am sure your Dad did. (at least a few, anyway).
All these things bring up so, so many memories of my Dad. He passed away over 5 years ago, but there isn't a day that I do not think about him, and the special memories of him. This morning when I woke up, before I even got up, I looked up, and said "Happy Father's Day, Dad"
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did!

Barb emoticon emoticon emoticon
