Boys Flex prior to our river run - Steven, Trey, Me (L-R), I look like the HULK right?
For my old friends, and anyone new who finds my sparkpage,
I am now 55 I started on SP in 2009, and used it religioiusly until I fell off the wagon, soon after I found another site I liked and haven't been around much.
Not much has changed, I have gained back all but 15 of the 53 pounds I lost starting in 2011. But I never stopped trying, I've kept my jogging going, but let my food get out of control.
I live and work in China. And during the winter, I routinely watch Biggest Loser and think, I should do that.
A couple years ago, I started on SP, lost 30# (needed to lose 100#) and kept it off for more than a year, but never got back on track.
In Dec 2011, my kids challenge me to do a family Biggest Loser contest with them... that got me fired up and in year I was down below 300# for the first time in five years. But now, I'm back at 334#.
I am working to get myself to 220# before my 55th birthday which will occur in July 2015.
I have big goals for this year, I want to run the Great Wall 1/2 marathon, a 10k this summer, and break 30:00 on a 5k some time this year. Just want to break 30:00.
I now weigh (1-7-2014) 344.5# , and it's time to get working again.
Weight Goal 220#
Waist = 38"
Chest = 44"
* 5K goal = 24:00
* 10k goal = 50:00

I started walking.. then a little WOGGING... in Jan my mile was 18:39... today (8-15-12) it's 13:33...
I also have taken up swimming... though the past few weeks have been frustrating because of summer in China.
GYM - I need to get back into lifting, I am happier, stronger, and feel better.
