My names Doug I'm from Northern ON Canada. I've been on spark for quite a while, lost 100 lbs...Sparkpeople helped a ton. I've been so busy with a crazy work schedule as a nurse, and kids that i've gotten away from sparkpeople and off track and gained about 20lbs or so. I'm not about to let all that hard work get undone. So here i am, back on Spark. I'm looking to meet a few good guys to encourage and be encouraged by to drop the weight i've put back on, and than get that extra push to lose the last bit of weight and be in the best shape of my life. And hey it would be nice if a few new friends were made online as well.
I love cooking, and enjoy looking up healthy recipes to try out on sparkrecipes. I enjoy the outdoors and try to do as much hiking in the summer as i can. My workout regimen was mostly using the elliptical, with some jogging. I was doing weight lifting as well to tone up. But for the next while i'm gonna focus on cardio to get my weight down.
To relax I watch a lot of movies, and enjoy almost any type but mostly suspense, horror, sci fi, comedy. I also don't have cable lol....just not home enough to really watch. But I buy seasons of shows on dvd to watch when i have spare time, my new fav show is Nurse Jackie, but i can't wait for season 5 of big bang.
My daughter just turned 5, and my son is about to turn 4. I love them to pieces and we run around at the park and cuddle up and watch some cartoons at night. I'd be interested to here from any other gay dads out there on their experiences raising kids too.
If you want to chat, encourage each other and have some fun while we see ourselves transform our bodies ;) send me an email or msg. I'm a positive person, and a pretty big softy and i'll enjoy getting to know other guys in the group and seeing your success as much as my own.
Thanks Doug :D (wow that was kinda long winded lol)
