Party Time

Friday, July 13, 2007      0 comments

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. On a positiv... Read more

Revised Diet / Exercise Plan a Success (so far)

Thursday, July 05, 2007      2 comments

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

Wednesday, June 27, 2007      0 comments

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

- 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!

Monday, April 16, 2007      2 comments

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

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

SP Community

Wednesday, March 07, 2007      1 comments

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

What's New

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!!

Tuesday, February 13, 2007      1 comments

Good morning! 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

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

Monday, January 15, 2007      0 comments

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
