Welcome Mike and good luck with your weight loss journey. We are all in this together and the struggle is universal except for those poor souls who have no choices. Having choices is the crux of our dilemma. So show us all how much fun and how good it makes one feel to eat well and get lots of exercise. I am quite good with the exercise but my food choices give pause once in a while. Today will be very good though. I really like living far from the grocery store so that if I plan my grocery list well things go well This is a great team with good leadership and I have always been active on it because of it.
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Hello all, just wanted to take a quick second to introduce myself to the group.
My name is Mike, I'm a 32 year old married guy living in Maryland and working as a government contractor in DC. I have a significant amount of weight to lose (well over 100 pounds), but I'm definitely up for the challenge.
I've been on SP for 7 weeks now and so far I've lost 12.5 pounds. So I'm definitely losing weight at a tortoise pace (a little more than 1.75 pounds a week), but I'm happy that the scale is going down.
I think that's all for now, just wanted to give a quick intro, if you want to know more about me, just ask, check out my sparkpage or check out my spark blog (I blog daily).
