2 years and counting! On to 2012!

Today is my 2 year Sparkaversary!

On January 2, 2010 I stepped on a scale for the first time in a few years (a scale I had to buy from, because our existing scale would not weigh me). The scale said 406 pounds. A wake up call for a 52 year old man. I realized this may be the final call to salvage my relatively good health.

Stopped eating like a teenager and began an adult diet. After a while I added a walking regimen.

My Sparkaversary report:


1.) have lost approx. 120 pounds.

2.) now missing 14 inches from my waist.

3.) I fit in places like small chairs, car seats and restaurant booths.

4.) Shirt size is 2x...down from 4x.

5.) Waist is 38 now, so I can shop most anywhere for clothes...sorry Big-and-Tall store!

The most interesting development for me is the weirdness I feel when I realize I have "fans". People who tell me often how good I look...and people I don't see that often actually amazed at my weight loss. This make s me feel great and keeps the motivation up for me...don't want to disappoint my "fans".

Latest developments: I now belong to a gym (never suspected I would EVER do this). I go 2-3 times a "gym-phobia" is cured. I also am starting the 3rd week of a "couch to 5k" training program, with hopes of running in February.....can't promise it will happen, but the practice is a good thing anyway.

Enough about me.

How about you? I hope your Spark experience is as good as mine. And I wish you all every success in 2012...Lets do it!!
