Hello every. I am Daniel. I am proud to say I am smoke free since June 03, 2009. I currently live in Iowa. I started at 270 pounds and 45% Body Fat in May 2007. I am now down to 254 and losing. My 3+ years journey has been a YO-YO adventure of lose and gain then lose and gain, over and over. I just can't seem to get below 230 before I start gaining again.My new goal is to reach 200 by March 2011 and 150 by years end. I want to lose this extra person attached to me so I can look and feel a lot better and happier. Thanks to Spark People and the support I have recieved from my wonderful team mates here. I am doing it. Good Luck to all of you.

Update 4/26/2011: Just found out I have a thyroid disorder which is preventing me from losing weight properly.
