Hello,
Thanks for taking the time to look at my site and get to know me a little better. My name is Michael. I'm 40, Married to a beautiful wife and I have 2 kids; boy and a girl. This is my THIRD time on Spark. I have yo-yo'd back and fourth for five years or so with my weight. Its always been very easy for me to get comfortable and lose my motivation; and its always discouraging to see all of your progress in weight loss slip away.

Hello,
Thanks for taking the time to look at my site and get to know me a little better. My name is Michael. I'm 40, Married to a beautiful wife and I have 2 kids; boy and a girl. This is my THIRD time on Spark. I have yo-yo'd back and fourth for five years or so with my weight. Its always been very easy for me to get comfortable and lose my motivation; and its always discouraging to see all of your progress in weight loss slip away.
The first time I started on Spark, it was to simply lose weight and to look nicer.
The second time I started(2010/2011), my Dr told me I was prediabetic (my sugar was 175 or so). Through diet and weight loss I was able to get this down in normal ranges. I soon got comfortable and had it in my head that my sugar was under control and that I was "fixed"
Around April of 2012 I found myself at my heaviest. I had a day where I couldnt get enough to drink and as soon as I drank it, I was running to the bathroom to pee. It was a cycle of this for 3 days. My vison had become slightly blurry and my feet started to tingle. I checked my sugar for the first time in a year or so and it was at 308. I was scared for my life. I know i should have went to the Dr, but I did not want to be on medication. I promised myself that I would try to get it down and if it didnt....THEN I would go. It is now 214. STILL High, but im getting better. I promise myself that if it does not continue to lower, then I will go to the Dr.
This time on Spark I have the drive to Win and the Will to Live. I want to be around for my wife and kids. I want to keep my vision and not lose my limbs. I'm trying to gain control before Im on medications UPDATE 7/26: my fasting blood sugar is now 124 and I have lost 30 pounds. I have educated myself about blood sugar and the GI diet and I'm finding staples that I can eat that are healthy and yummy.

My Goals:
I started out at 326. My goal is to be 200 pounds and then go to about 180. I want to be able to take my kids to a water park and not be embarassed. I would like to shop for clothes at any store I choose. I want to be be able to go to a theme park and ride the rides with my kids rather than do the "walk of shame"

My Program:
I am not on a specific diet. I am eating every 3 hours to keep my blood sugar level. I am focused on eating foods that have a low Glycemic Index level.(read about it) Mostly keeping it unprocessed, except for occasional bread and sugar free pudding. Keeping carbonated beverages away focusing on water.

Personal Information:
I'm happily married and a father of two beautiful children and we live in Tennessee.

Other Information:
I love to grill and cook and would one day like to publish a manly man's diet cook book. I love spicy food. I also like playing cards and camping. would love to be in shape so I could bike and hike.

Hey there, how is it going? Have you been watching any of the Kinect videos? It is looking pretty sweet.

How's life otherwise? Getting some activity in?
