PERSISTENTTIM is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Hello, my name is Tim. I've been very overweight all my, one of the biggest obstacles has been my tendency to isolate and shy away from family and friends. I have decided to put myself out there, be vulnerable and trust this leap of faith will lead something great. At this point I have not left my home for more than 2 years and not worked in 7 years. I weighed about 300 lbs when I was 18, kept gaining through my 20's until hitting 600 lbs at 30, now at almost 40 I am getting healthy. My highest weight was in 2012-2013 when I weighed between 700-800lbs, I lost some weight and as of January 2015 weigh 590lbs. God bless!
1. Be Healthy
2. Lose 500lbs
3. Get back to work
4. Live my life
Abstain from eating sugar and not binge or overeat.
Drink as much water as possible.
I live in Georgia.
Single w/ no kids.
I love to listen to music. Some of my favorites are Def Lepard, Bryan Adams, Eddie Money, Bon Jovi, Prince, Michael Jackson, Run DMC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Chicago, Huey Lewis and Milli Vanilli.
| current weight: 438.0

My Wonderful Spark Friend !!
Remember just because it is a Holiday Weekend doesn't mean you can't have a good time and stay on track... just watch be sure to weight the hamburger meat out to 3-4 ounces, layer it with plenty of veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, onions, radishes or your favorites!! Try adding some grilled vegetables to the list... Family BBQ's can be the greatest way to get your family on board to trying fresh grilled vegetables and "Yes" even grilled "Fruits"... Try gilled fruit and veggie kabobs... along with your favorite salsa. Even visit Chef Meg for some of her favorite recipes for grilling!!
"Memorial Day Weekend Blessings!!"
Remember to Plan for those desserts to, no more than 1/8th of a slice if you put it on your tracker!! You should have plenty of room for it!! Let's be Happy with our choices, not sorry about it later!

How To Have a Better Day
1. Play with kids.
Even if they are not your own, just kid around kids while they are just being kids.
2. Give someone a compliment.
Not a fake one, but take the time to see something that someone else is doing well.
3. Sing in your car.
And sing as loud as you can. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to frown while you are singing?
4. Watch a movie.
You might like it, and maybe you'll laugh, and maybe you'll cry.
5. Bake your favorite kind of cookies.
Then eat some.
6. Count your blessings.
I mean it. Start a list of all the things you are thankful for.
Write until you canâ€™t write anymore. Staple it to the wall.
7. Watch people.
Go find a crowded public area, sit down and watch. Allow yourself to wonder what he ate for breakfast, or what her name is, or where he bought that shirt.
8. Do something for someone you love.
Do the dishes for your wife, take your niece out for ice cream,
take your mom to Starbucks for a coffee.
It'll make you feel good.
10. Think of the most encouraging person you know and call them.
But donâ€™t complain. Refrain from telling them how bad your day is
and focus on making their day better.
11. Write a letter.
A good old-fashioned paper and ink letter. Bonus: write it to someone who has impacted your life and thank them and let them know how much you appreciate their role/impact in your life.
12. Make new friends.
One of them may be in your life forever.
How will you have a better day?
