Well, it's off to my colonoscopy. Survived the day before. The only thing that was bad was the Trilyte -- that stuff tastes AWFUL!! I saw another blogger describe it as "dishwash water", and I think that fits it just fine.

Revised Diet / Exercise Plan a Success (so far)
Tuesday, July 3 was a very good day. After a week of curtailing my calories a bit (400 calories) and pushing harder on my cardio / strength training, I have experienced success at breaking the plateau. Went from 270 to 266!!!
Hopefully, t... Read more
Time for a change
I have been "plateaued" at 270 for some weeks (actually months now). Lots of reasons (surgery, vacations, travel, etc), but that is all behind me.
My revised plan:
- Set a lower goal weight for 2007 (217). In order to hit this targe... Read more
Knee, challenge, etc.
- My knee is healing up very nicely. The only thing I have not tried yet is a workout at the gym. Maybe later this week...
- My 50+ Mens Team is doing a "Projects" challenge -- have seen some interesing and "challenging" challenges -- fin... Read more
Knee Surgery a Success!
I had my knee surgery last Thursday (4/12), and I consider it a success! No more pain on the inside part of my knee! I'm walking around pretty good around the house (althought I'm nor ready to kneel on the knee yet -- give it some time!). Pre... Read more
I wasn't terribly surprised today when my Dr gave me the results of the MRI on my left knee -- torn meniscus on the inside part of my knee. April 12 is the surgery date, and if it goes like my right knee surgery did, I will be pretty much back ... Read more
A little is better than none...
Weigh in day -- 1.2 pound down over the past two weeks. I did not weigh in last week as I spent the long weekend before with friends and family celebrating my 50th birthday, and frankly, did not eat or exercise as well as I had been. But, in d... Read more
The weight keeps coming off!
I have to admit I was a little tentative stepping on the scape this morning. It had been three weeks since I had last done it, as I had to curtail my exercise program a few weeks back due to a nasty back ailment. So, I decided to wait until I ... Read more
This week is quickly becoming an eventful week here in SP-land. Moved from Stage 2 to Stage 3 (and I think the time is right), and decided to follow my heart and join the SP Community Team. And based on the response, it has been more than wor... Read more
I realized I had not added anything to my blog in weeks. My bad! Here's what's been happening since 2/13:
- Last weigh-in = down 13 pounds
- Clothes that were incredibly tight / not wearable are gettin much looser and/or wearable. :-D ... Read more
1st Goal Acheived!!
A nice way to start a cold day in CT -- acheiving a weight goal 1 month ahead of schedule!
My goal was to be at 277 by my birthday (3/15). I weighed myself this morning and -- I am at 276 -- so I've actually beat the... Read more
Even more success!!
The "skinny" :-) --
- Lost 3 more pounds this past week (total of 6 since I started)
- 2 " gone from my waistline (granted, there's a lot there, but...)
- 1/2" gone from my neck and hips
- Moved from Stage 1 to Stage 2
Why I thin... Read more
I was pretty jazzed by losing 3 pounds last week - I can't think of the last time I stepped on a scale and saw a decrease. Exercise hasn't been the main issue (although I know I can do more) -- it was the food!
I have found that entering... Read more
Good news -- I lost 3 pounds last week! The best part was that it was not nearly as hard as I thought. Better meal planning and 2 more walks per week were the keys.
Of course, I can do more, and as my wife pointed out, there will be wee... Read more
OK -- a week has passed, and tonight aftter my two classes at my health club I will be weighing in. I'm excited and a little nervous. I've been far from perfect this past week, but only one day did I go over my calories. I don't think that wou... Read more
