Weekend break even
Volunteered at the Woofstock Festival again this year. Ate all the wrong food....and a bit too much of it. But, worked hard enough to hold my weig... Read more
A new Start....not the first one, but oh well...
Re-booting my efforts after a long back slide. Life and routine get in the way sometimes, and I let it get the better of me. My last long stretch here, I lost over 100 pounds....so I know I can do it!
Last October I fractured the humerus ... Read more
Weight loss has been sluggish...so, have been keeping away from the scale a little lately. I feel good and my clothes fit (which is a red flag warning).
Still logging, except for slacking off a bit on the weekends. Watching portions and t... Read more
I have not added a blog in quite a while...haven't been sure what to write...and also had been a bit dissappointed in myself for a while.

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 amazon.com, because our existing scale would not weigh me). The scale said 406 pounds. A wake up call f... Read more
Not Exactly a "Sparky" Holiday!
I don't know why, being the youngest in my family, that our house has become a "host" house for Christmas. Even though I am not that young anymore, the youngest kid used t... Read more
The gym report
I promised a couple people I would blog about my newbie gym experiences.

You can call me "Gym"
Okay...big step...I set foot in a gym for the first time ever.
The membership I won in a raffle...6 free months at the fitness center. Some sort of sign, I guess....either that or I was the only raffle ticket purchaser for that particular ... Read more
Only a minute?
My first video blog...so I thought I would embarrass myself a little. What is in the video would have killed me a couple of years ago...at 406 lbs. Its only a minute, but I am proud of it...and its only a start. Thanks Sparkpeople...and Spark... Read more

"Fitting in" better!
When some folks lose weight, they talk about "fitting in". They "fit in" smaller clothes, like favorite jeans.
I was sitting in a metal office chair today, in the office of my boss...a place where I have sat hundreds of times, squeezing in... Read more
