I joined SparkPeople after losing 30 pounds. I was given this site by my health coach and I think it is going to be one of the best weight loss tools I have ever used. This community will help me to overcome the plateau that we tend to hit during our attempts at losing weight. I am excited, encouraged, and motivated to be victorious and to meet and exceed the goals that were set for me when I joined this site. So lets get busy. We will help each other and shrink together.

Member Since: 2/16/2009

Fitness Minutes: 71,731

My Goals:
I want to be healthier and have more energy. It is my desire to go from being very over weight to being in the best shape of my life. I never thought I could do it until now.

My Program:
I am watching what I eat. I have stopped going to burger places. That is going to be a treat when I do it. But I am following a much lower fat diet. I try to get in cardio everyday but it gets by me sometimes and I am doing weight training every other day. I joined a gym on 03/07/09 and I am pumped about it. I am also taking protein and my vitamins on a regular basis.

Personal Information:
I am happily married with 3 beautiful children, 3 grand children with one more on the way and a son-in-law. I am a man of faith and it is my faith that will take me to new heights in fitness that I never thought I could get to. I love my family, God and my church. I am blessed to have a job that I love getting up and going to every morning. I am in it to win and I look forward to the journey.

    I love this, thought I share:

    Wellness isn’t about deprivation and it’s not about perfection.

    It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential, and then taking small steps to support that shift.

    It’s about showing up for yourself, day by day, and then one day finding that you’ve undergone a transformation.
