My up and down journey continues. I've lost 40 pounds using the tools on this website and in the last 8 months gained all of it back with the exception of 6 pounds. So here I go again. I have been doing a lot of reading lately to find out why I have this love/hate battle with food. Part of the problem is my view of food. I've learned that by viewing food as something more than fuel and nutrition I turn to it to fuel emotional upheavals in my life. I am trying to change the way I view food so that it will do what its primary goal is: to provide me with nutrition and fuel. We'll see how it works.

My Goals:
My only goal is to get fit. At this stage I don't know where that is. I started out on at 291 pounds with an interim goal of around 245. My guess is 'fit' for me would be between 175 to 210. We'll see.

My Program:
I've changed my program. I am currently doing 5x5 strong lifts. It is an intense weight lifting program that entails lifting heavy. It features squats, military press, bench press, dead lifts and barbell rows. I've had to modify mine due to issues with my right shoulder. My orthopedic doctor has instructed me to not do military presses or bench presses until they find out what is going on with my shoulder. But I've continued with the other exercises. I also have a Concept2 rowing machine and I use that several times a week along with my bicycle trainer for cardio. I love the rowing machine! It's one of those cardio machines that provides a great workout and it's low impact. It's one of those machines in the gym that very rarely gets used, but once one gets into it, it's fun.
