Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi, I'm John, aka Sarge. I put on a few pounds while recovering from shoulder surgery. I have since lost those 6 pounds and would like to lose another 13 to get back to 200. From there I will hopefully be inspired to get back to the 180-185 range of 5 to 7 years ago. My daughter told me about this site and I thought I would give it a try. Now that physical therapy is over I can use the site to help track my progress and inspire consistency as I continue my workouts.

I finally started logging food again as I restart my efforts here. I have not been good about exercising however. Baby steps I guess. Yeah, that's it. I figured I better get started as people are starting to talk to me about this year's walk. Updates later. Back up to 209 as I restart with my original goals plus 1 year. As of today, 12October08, the 30-mile walk is behind me and it is time to get back into a normal routine. The past month has not been conducive to working out but my eating went on as if I was. I am now back up to 204 lbs. and I need to reverse this trend immediately.
202 lbs today and working to 190 by New Year's Day. 10January10, Restart? Back to the 213 lbs. from my original start date. I've never gotten back into any regular exercising since recovering from dual hernia surgeries last January. 13February09, Restart. Original goals, 1 year later. 209 lbs. I put on a few pounds while recovering from shoulder surgery. I have since lost those 6 pounds and would like to lose another 13 to get back to 200. 01July08 Achieved! 04October08 30 Mile Walk Fund Raiser From 200, I will work to get back to the 180-185 range of 5 to 7 years ago.
Time to restart those rehab exercises and the walking.

I've lived in Anoka, MN, since 1991 with my wife of 31 years. Our first granddaughter is in the picture of me in a Minnesota North Stars jersey, holding her. That was Christmas Eve, 2007. It was also 2 weeks after my shoulder surgery and 3 weeks after she was born.
As for my profile image, I have no idea who it is. It humors me and seems appropriate at this time.
If you would like to know more about me, my blog sites are: http://www.truthdrivenllc.com/ http://truthdriven.8.forumer.com http://sarge-says.blogspot.com/ For my "Personal Signature" I had a Monty Python line, "I ain't dead yet". After posting on another's page who was dealing with a spouse's cancer, I saw the signature and wondered how that looked. I changed it. ??? "Today is the Tomorrow you worried about Yesterday" is akin to "Tomorrow never comes, it's always Today". Either way, live today. Yesterday is done and tomorrow will have enough trouble of it's own.

FatSecret? Cool! Haven't heard of it - but I don't have a cell phone that does anything more than make phone calls :) My husband has a Windows phone (the new one that he can play Xbox on) and he seems to really be liking it. Good to see you though.
