Nobody likes to fail.

I let myself down again for the umpteenth time. I just turned 50 this year and reached my highest weight of 302 pounds. My clothes no longer fit me and I am now starting to buy XXXL shirts.

How did this happen?

I need to change to get control of my brain and my health so here we go again. This will be the last time!

Day 1 - Canada Day July 1st 2013

I woke up today and made the decision.

I just turned 50 a couple months ago and my health is not as good as it should be. My wife has been encouraging me to lose the excess weight that I have packed on over the last 15 year.

We got back home from Mexico last December 2012 and I hopped on the scale to find that I was 302 pounds. I could not believe it. I was mad at myself for getting to this point.

Fast forward to July 1st 2013, and I made the decision to go all out on taking care of myself from this point forward.

So now here I am today and I will begin blogging again. I am going to blog about my journey so that I can keep track of things...

I am back on

This lifestyle seems to work best for me so I am going to commit 100% to doing it now.

We shall see where I am next Canada Day 2014.

    Who says it was a failure? Thomas Edison learned 300 ways not to make a light bulb - and perhaps you have learned a zillion ways that "dieting" doesn't work! There is something great about milestone birthdays that allows us to benchmark new intentions and goals. You can do it! :)

    There is somethings about milestone birthdays. I am approaching 50 so I totally get your motivation-1963 was a great year-LOL. You can do this. Don't go too fast and furious-make small sustainable changes. You can do this!
