Sailor for thirty years. Shift worker at a satellite communications facility. Home vegetable/berry/herb gardener. May 2016 was my 32nd wedding anniversary.

Member Since: 5/28/2013

Fitness Minutes: 78,036

My Goals:
160 pounds by December 2016. I woke up in February 2013 at 200 pounds. Got down to 190 by April and got a FITBIT. FITBIT led me to SPARKPEOPLE which has increased my insight on what I need to get out of my food intake and what I need to add to my intake.
When I retired from the service in 2005 I weighed 150, however, in 2003 I had two stents and in 2004 I had a fasciotomy on my lower left leg and I went from leading PT 6 times a week to jogging once a month and then nothing ( I was a travelling instructor from 2005-2007 and went to the gym sometimes but normally, taught, corresponded with home office and ate out.)

My Program:
Exercise 90 minutes a week.

Eliminated those boxed, bagged or canned "meals" shift workers find so convenient.

Log and review my intake to make better choices.

Personal Information:
Born at Naval Air Station Jacksonville Fl and grew up in Maine, Maryland and Florida. Met and married Donna in Naples Italy. Two wonderful children still living with us, a 22YO grad student at OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY and a 19yo freshman at TIDEWATER COMMUNITY COLLEGE.

Other Information:
For the past five years I raised raspberries, blue berries, strawberries, sunchokes, asparagus, potatoes, onion, carrots, tomatoes, pole beans, peas, okra, eggplant, various squash, herbs. hot pepers. Haven't had luck with corn yet, maybe next year. We also have a mulberry and a nectarine tree. Last year I got a canning kit but the only thing I've done is pickle okra. Always next year.
