hey
TRAVELINGGURU. Yeah there are some people out here. Good to meet you. Right now I
am unemployed. Its discouraging to apply for so many jobs and nothing. With money running
short and fears show its ugly head, its difficult some days to lift my head up.

Well, unsure if anyone's around, but will post an intro nonetheless... (If a man introduces himself to other men without a woman around, does it make any sound?) :)

Kevin here. Consultant, business owner, frequent traveler. Live in Houston area with wife, 20-yo daughter and MIL (a challenge). Two older kiddos with four grandkids. Dropped about 45lbs since August, have more to go...

Vices include golf (just returned from Masters practice rounds in Augusta), cigars, wine, occasional scotch. Try to eat clean, focus on low carb, lean proteins and lots of freggies (not exactly a man-word, is it??). Lots of water, I do much better when I track, but can be inconsistent on that.

Been on SP for years, only became involved in mid-2015. Here frequently, let me know if I can help in any way.

Best,
KB

Hey craig, james here. Workaholic too, but that doesn't help me loose weight and exercise. Looking for others that want to band together to put work aside and get healthy

Hey guys. Name's Bob. I'm a retired Army medic. Second career is mainly an office job and now I have to lose all of the weight I gained since I took the uniform off.

Helloooo! Anybody here?

I just found this group, and was so excited to find a mens only group, but seeing the dates of the posts, it doesn't look like there is much activity....

Nevertheless, I shall introduce myself. My name is Chris, and I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I have been actively using this site since May 2015, and so far I have dropped 26 lbs. Under 200 lbs for the first time in about 10 years. I still have a bit to go, but I'm pretty happy about my progress.

My intent is to start body weight training and am wondering if anyone here has had any experience in that.

Have a great day!

Chris

Hi all

I just found and joined this team. I have been on Spark about a year. After 3 rounds of thr BLC challenges I lost my motivstion. The first round I had an initial loss of about 25lbs then have basically maintained. Time for new motivation I am thinking

Blue, I do know. I have lost 500 pounds and then gained everyone of them back. Twice I have lost over 40 pounds, then I get complacent and the weight all comes back in a year or two.

The vicious cycle has to stop for me.

I am committed and I WILL lose 35 or more pounds in 2014!

I started SP in 2007 as BCCStan. After years of ups and downs I decided it was time for a clean start. Started with this ID around Christmas when my weight was at its highest ever and my blood sugar soared to 260. The sugar is now in the 120's and the weight is coming off slowly (13 pounds so far and most of that in April).

Looking for some men to befriend here. Seems like every team I go to is about 95% women. Hope to find some encouragement here!

All 4 of my kids and all the grandkids are coming for dinner tonight! Gotta go fire up the grill!

I am committed and I WILL lose 35 or more pounds in 2014!

Hey Blue, just read your post today. I think so much can knock us off the wagon. In my case it has been work, or family health issues, or even psyching myself out because I wasn't achieving as mush as I had hoped. But it's the persistence that makes a difference. Hey in the words of Vince Lombardi...

The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That's real glory.

Blue all you can do is focus on today!

Don't worry about tomorrow because it never comes.
We do all stumble and fall occasionally. When we do we get up and do it again.

I found for myself that when I go long periods with out accountability that is when I struggle the most. So as a preventative measure stay active on SP and post and check in regularly.

Welcome Back!

Also here for a second SP cycle - so what makes us fall off the wagon?? I know this works and when I am focused I can consistently drop 2 -3 lbs a week.

When I exercise I am pretty damn intense about it- - but then a couple of tough days stretch into a couple of tough weeks then months and - well some of you know.

I am quite confident I will stay on track today - and this wee - There is that turning point out there a couple of months from now that I fear most

Rock bottom today....so here I am....again. SP worked for me, in terms of logging food intake, along with a Body for Life type workout schedule. So welcome to the new guys, it is difficult, but it worked for me in 2007....and it's past due time for me to make it work again.

Hey, I'm Mike and I'm new to SP. A couple years ago, I lost about 20 lbs using another nutrition and fitness tracking site and a "no excuses, no half measures" philosophy. I've put the weight back on mostly due to slacking off on watching nutrition. I'm now the heaviest I've ever been, in spite of regularly working out. So I'm hitting the reset button. My goals are to lose about 30 lbs, get stronger (particularly upper body which has never been up to par), and feel more energetic. I remember after I lost the weight the first time I could bound up the stairs with energy and no huffing and puffing. I want that feeling again!

Hi, my name is aaron. I have tried sp multiple times but never really stuck with it. I think this time it will be different because I have clear goals. I currently weight 320 pounds. I want to lose 100 pounds by May 2015. That is when my oldest son graduates high school. This being one of the biggest mile stones in his life I want to look my best.

That is just one of my goals. Another reason I want to lose weight is because I am a runner and also breaking into triathlons. More specially Ironman Louisvlle in August 2014. As a runner I am tired of finishng in the back of the pack and want to finish with my age group. And as far as the ironman goes I really don't want to cross that finish line weighing 300+ pounds. Not being that heavy will make the journey a little less difficult.

Well I could keep gong but I will save more of my story for a later date.

I AM A DISGUSTING FATBODY !!!

It's nice to see some male oriented stuff here on Sparkpeople and in the diet forums general (Ooorah!). I'm trying to drop 50+ lbs. I'm 5'-10", 235 lbs., and was once up to 256 about 5 yrs ago. I've dieted in the past and have maintained 235-240 for quite some time, but am not happy being a disgusting fatbody (Full Metal Jacket reference there....guy stuff).

I am on my 3rd day of Ideal Protein. It's been much easier than HCG so far, in that they allow a full meal each evening (8 oz of meat and 2 cups of veggies is a lot actually), along with snacks, etc. Only thing is they don't allow carbs and exercise, which is tough, as I golf and drink beer in a wkly league. We'll see how that works out. Also, the diet is expensive (300 to start, and 90/wk thereafter), but costs taper off after the goal weight is achieved, which should take me about 2.5-3 mos. Of course, you're not dining out as much so you're saving there. Plus there's no alcohol allowed, so that should save thousands/month alone for many of us, haha.

Anyway, again it's good to be in a male support group, vs. stomaching the typical chick discussions on other groups.

RJ

Anyway, I'm on the Spark part of the cycle again. This group was more active before but the holidays might have something to do with that.

Hey guys:

Good to find a group just for guys. I'm hoping to benefit from the support and ideas here as well as do likewise for others.

I am in my early 60s, semi-retired and a new grandpa. My daughter is getting married next May and I want to drop some weight prior to then so I look a little more trim for the photos.
We live in TN. My main interests are cycling and watching college sports.

Hi all,

I've maintained a 75lb weight loss for over 20 years. Now I work with men that have lost a substantial amount of weight to help them think and feel as great as they look. I'm looking forward to sharing ideas here on Sparkpeople.

I'm a bit of a gym rat and, though I lost my weight using Weight Watchers, I'm now a Paleo eater.

I just posted this on SparkMen. So these are the only two teams I belong to now....
For possibly the 20th time I am back at SparkPeople trying to get myself on the right track. Had great success five yeas ago with a 50lb loss, but didn't maintain it long enough to change habits.

Did CrossFit for two years but stopped 6 months ago due to injuries that still have not been diagnosed. Going for MRI in a few weeks to try to find source of numbness in all four extremities. Stupid thing is that am still able to run and just ran a 25 minute 5k just yesterday, over a bridge twice!

My wife tells me to log my food because hat is my downfall....so here I am again. See a few familiar faces, will try to contribute.

Hey all, nice to see a men's forum on here.

I'm science guy working on my PhD. Returned to SparkPeople after a long hiatus. Lost a lot of weight (like 110 lbs) on Jenny Craig about 12 yrs ago - and it was weird being the only dude in the center. Gained quite a lot of weight back during college and early grad school, now trying to lose weight again after that. Shaved off 40 lbs in the last 10 weeks, going for optimal health.

Hey guys, i am Dave Youel, 40 yrs old, former teacher and now telesales supervisor. I have a family in Louisa Virginia (yes we are near the earthquake from last year) with a loving wife, a son and daughter, two cats and two dogs. I am returning to Spark again after having been a member during my early thirties when I was working at Circuit City. I have been on the weight loss roller coaster and now we are seeing a nutritionist monthly and I am looking to reconnect with a group I can contact/communicate with 24/7.

Hi,

My name is Josh. I'm 34 years old and live in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It's part of the greater Toronto area. I joined Sparkpeople a few years ago but wasn't ready to take it seriously. Now I'm a little older and, hopefully, wiser. I'm ready to turn over a new leaf. I also have a physical disability but I manage to keep active.

I'm 29 and this is my second time here. i lost a lot of weight the first time but i also had a bunch of negative people around me so i quit. already i have people trying to get me to be unhealthy and i refuse! i want to get back into shape and do the things i used to be able to do like hiking, kayaking. thanks for listening and i hope you all meet your goals!

Hi Everyone,

Just introducing myself. I'm new to Sparkpeople, first week and I've weighed in with a high weight of 260, trying to get back into shape. I've had a rough, rough time in life in the last 5 years and I am just getting around to taking care of myself again. Hope to see you all in the forums!!

Hello all (again)
I've been here before, probably even introduced myself before. Time to get serious about this.
The wife and I have been following Weight Watchers for the last few weeks. I'm doing the tracking with them, but am going to come here for the community. The scale has read as high as 315 (I think that was higher than the rated capacity, that scale stopped working a little while ago), but I'm currently hanging around the 275-280

Good luck to everyone.

Hey, all. My name is Arlen and I'm hoping to finish losing the last of the weight after a few years of yo-yoing and losing a lot but regaining.
I have some medical issues and need to lose the weight and get rid of the man boobs and I'm working hard to do it.

What's up guys! My name's Kenny. I've been with sparkpeople for about a year, but I recently started back up a couple months ago. Currently, I'm doing insanity, almost halfway through month 2. I'm trying to get in shape and be healthy so that I can lead a confident and successful life.

Hi guys. I guess this is a REintroduction because it has been years since I've been around. My top weight was 370+, got down just below 300 (some of that was due to health issues) but I've gotten back up to over 325 and looking to make some changes and lose some weight the RIGHT way. Turned 40 last year, so that is a big motivator too. Hard to keep up with my kids!

Hi,
My name is Jim; I live in Long Pond Pennsylvania.
My wife told me to join this team.. LOL
I want to lose 25 Lbs, and to feel better.
As of this writing I have lost 16 lbs. The food tracker has made it almost painless.

Lately the scale won’t budge, but at least it’s not moving up.
I have a lot of health issues which it difficult for me to do enough cardio.
Anyway I’m glad to belong to a team that’s not ranting about flabby thighs, cellulite or having endless debates about gaining excess water weight.

New here; been on Spark for a little over 60 days. 50 years old, business owner, scientist, husband, father of two teens. Goal to lose 126 lbs from where I started and about 100 from where I am now. Spark has been working great for me so far, but very glad to associate with some people also advantaged with a y-chromosome.
