Maybe Today

This picture was taken in April of 2009. I'm 30 pounds heavier now because I broke my leg a week after this picture was taken and was laid up for six months. Now it's time to take it off but I can't find the motivation to do so. I'll have to start digging.

Hey man, thanks for the comment on my page. I just wanted to let you know something. I started exercising about six months before I found SparkPeople. I figured I didn't really need to watch my food intake because I went to the gym five days a week and walked about five miles on the treadmill. During the six months of exercise, I had only lost about 5 pounds and just gave up.

Then I found SparkPeople and the nutrition tracker. I identified how many calories I should be eating (based on current weight and height) and then started tracking my food intake with the nutrition tracker. (And I haven't been back to the gym either.)

I won't say it's been smooth sailing since then but I have managed to lose a decent about of weight since then. I've had my ups and downs but, here I am on day 330 of tracking and I've averaged losing about .24 pounds per day (started faster and slowed down some.) Of course, the more weight you lose the less calories you can eat ... so SOME slow-down (or starving) is to be expected. I'm not a good starver.

One last thing. When I started tracking, I would enter my food AFTER I ate it. Then I had to try to remember what I ate etc. After a while, I learned to plan and enter my food a day or two in advance. I don't use Spark's meal planner, I plan my own. It's much easier to plan my meals ahead and then just stick to the plan (most of the time.) My wife has been very supportive of me though ... which is crucial. I plan them and and she cooks them ... without complaint ... she's great. She's overweight too but she's not trying to lose weight right now. She's busy dealing with other things for now.

Anyway, GOOD LUCK MAN!!
