Searching for better health

I'm a mid-40's man who loves to eat. I don't consider myself obese, but all the "health charts" say I am. My reason for using SparkPeople is to learn a healthier lifestyle, including food consumption and exercise.

Fitness Minutes: 7,871

My Goals:
My goal is to be 192 lbs.

Why the specific number? That will represent a 100 lb weight loss from my heaviest weight ever!

1-Feb-2012 233 lbs
5-Jan-2012 242 lbs
15-Nov 2011 266 lbs
15-Oct-2011 277 lbs
15-Apr-2011 288.5 lbs
15-Mar-2011 292 lbs






My Program:
I'm following the Spark calorie consumption recommendations and trying to eat more fruit and vegetables. My current plan is to eat three 150 calorie snacks a day along with two reasonable meals.

I'm also trying to get in at least 90 minutes of exercise a week. This from a guy who never liked to exercise.

Love the clown picture!
Hi, welcome to Sparkpeople. I try to send this message to help folks with the website because I found it a bit difficult in the beginning. I am not anyone special, just someone trying to gain control of my health, just like you. I hope you enjoy this website as much as I do. I have gotten so much out of it. I have met some wonderful folks on this website.
This can all feel a bit overwhelming at first, but don't give up.(All the advertising can feel distracting, but it keeps it free for all of us. Just ignore it if you want.)
Explore a little at a time.
Scroll through other member pages, if you see anyone you would like to have as a spark friend, just click the little button at the top and that will add them to your friend list.
If you are confused, ask questions on the Messages Boards, under the Get Help section.
Under the Message Boards tab, check out Sparkpeople Café and the Sparkpeople Game Room. There are a lot of fun running posts on these message boards.
Check your Sparkpoint page and see where you can earn more points. It’s fun to use the points to buy and give the ‘goodies’ to yourself or to other Sparkpeople.
Be kind to yourself and take it one day at a time. Expect set backs and just ride them out.Don't compare yourself to others.Don’t ever give up, instead, reach out. That is what we are all here for.
I promise, it gets better, one day at a time.
I like to think of daily food control like the pages of a book. One page (day) is not very thick, hardly seems worth the effort, but when you close the book the thickness of all the pages (days) together really have an impact. It is up to you to decide if the story is a good one.
