Clearing a new path to travel on

Hi all. My name is Tim. I've done and failed many of diets. This time I'm not doing a diet. I'm going to start by counting calories. As I move on in my journey, I'll use my counting knowledge I've gained to just continue to stay healthy. I'm not cutting out certain things I like. Because if I do. I'll fail. It's pretty much why we all fail. But that just means I'll have to sacrifice somewhere else, or work out harder. Starting weight is 314. Not so happy about that. I swore I would never go ...
Hi all. My name is Tim. I've done and failed many of diets. This time I'm not doing a diet. I'm going to start by counting calories. As I move on in my journey, I'll use my counting knowledge I've gained to just continue to stay healthy. I'm not cutting out certain things I like. Because if I do. I'll fail. It's pretty much why we all fail. But that just means I'll have to sacrifice somewhere else, or work out harder. Starting weight is 314. Not so happy about that. I swore I would never go above 300. I maintained under 300 for a long time. not what I wanted. But I maintained. Then my father passed away in 2011. That put me into a spiral. First I didn't eat really at all. then I just binged. I was eating huge amount of snack foods right before bed. And here I am. I have a 4 and a half year old son. I've decided that since I've never had enough motivation to do this just for myself. I need to do this for him. I don't want him to end up with the same bad habits and problems. He looks just like me. So it scares me. But this way he can grow up knowing healthy alternatives. And hopefully be fit and be the lady killer I should have been. ;) I do have a fabulous wife. So I'm certainly not upset about that. So here I am. day one. Not of a diet. But of my new life. I have no weight goal. Just to be healthy and live to see my son grow up and make his own family. And to be able to keep up with him and make sure he gets everything he needs.

My Goals:
I've written that in my intro. No need to post it again.

My Program:
Using the nutrition tracker to so I can keep track of my eating. I hope to be able to just "know" without using trackers eventually so that I don't feel I have to get on every time and enter all the information.
I'm not in this for a number on the scale. I'm in it for health. The scale is just my guideline to make sure I'm on the right path.

Personal Information:
I'm a geek. We'll start there. I am a computer nerd. I read comics and play video games. All of these things did not help me growing up to be healthy. I play guitar. I've been playing since I was 13. I'm a husband and a father. My son is 4 years old. He looks just like me which scares me. I want him to grow up and learn healthy traits. I want the best for him as we all do for our kids. So I'm doing this for him mostly. There's plenty more, but just ask. I like to chat.
