My son and I winter 2010 me at 280

I have 5 pics in my gallery



Want to get back to my weight of seven years ago. I was heavy most of my life, but got in shape in my mid twenties. I maintained it for 3 years but then slowly put all but 20 lbs back on. I was fit. I need to reclaim my fitness for my job and my family.

Hey, thanks for the comments on my blog! Stick with a great workout plan and you'll do really well with P90X in the future! I don't do any of the plyo, I have a small knee injury and that keeps me from pushing hard but keep at it!

hehe, so you believe no one under 35 knows punk?
well sir, you are sooo wrong :D

I love patti smith and her undergoing voice, also the clash (joe strummer emoticon ) and I listen to them a lot - these would be my favourites, but there is lots more out there of course, I am more into UK punk than US punk...I also love WIZO, a german punk band so much...and I am into hardcore punk too, such as boysetsfire, botch, planes mistaken for stars, black flag, agonstic front or misfits... and what about you?

greetings from Austria!

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


If you haven't already discovered SparkDiet pages linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
