It's all about me!

I'm a single dad, raising two teenagers, and am also a social worker who supervises a program working with consumers receiving mental health services. My life is about service and always helping others, so very little is left for me. The pinnacle of fitness for me was in my early to mid 30's when I was in the best shape of my life, but now I'm 41. My weight can fluctuate easily, but I want to get back to where I was and stay there. For me, it's about being healthy and looking good!

Fitness Minutes: 9,350

My Goals:
According to the BMI, I am obese. To be in a normal range, I am supposed to be in the neighborhood of 150 lbs. I have tried various ways of eating with varying degress of success. I like alot of food, so low carb served me well; however, I know that Weight Watchers is a healthier way to lose, but sometimes I feel I don't get enough food. If I'm super stressed, it's hard for me to get motivated to go to the gym, so one goal there is to continue on despite my stressors.

My Program:
I'm supposed to be consuming between 1500 and 1850 calories per day. I work out at Planet Fitness, doing a variety of things from the treadmill, eliptical, stairmaster, free weights, and Cybex, and will also run outside in the summer.

I closely follow my nutrition and fitness trackers and run my calorie differential report.

I tried WW, but feel Sparkpeople gives me more control over how I handle my eating lifestyle.

Personal Information:
I live in Michigan and you can find me on Facebook at
