I'm the "Big Daddy", Todd Folstad - In the past year I've had a lap-band procedure which allowed me to get to a hip replacement. Now that all the surgery is done, I'm back to working out and need to really "kick this pig" and get the weight loss trending down hardcore. I've been "eating around the band", so my doc said today - mostly foods that just slide thru and leave me feeling empty and hungry. I really could use some help and support as I try to turn this situation around and get back into life at FULL WARP SPEED!!!

Fitness Minutes: 60

My Goals:
Main Goal ~ Drop 76 pounds.

Secondary Goal ~ Get ALL my strength back, not necessarily to my pre-hip replacement levels, but strong enough to do what I want - walking, jogging, lifting, etc - maybe even dancing!!!

Tertiary Goal ~ Better overall health and control of my weight.

My Program:
Currently walking 3-5 days a week @ the Mall of America(indoor) at clips of 3 miles and 5k alternating days. I'm also doing 3 sessions of kettlebell workouts for 30 minutes per session for endurance, cardio and some strength.

Personal Information:
Bloomington, MN - home of the Mall of America.

48 y/o single male just looking to get healthy again.

In the past year, with the lap-band surgery and the hip replacement, I have corrected the Type II diabetes that had been plauging me and my sleep apnea is now just a memory.

Other Information:
I'm currently a Job Coach & Resume Specialist seeking full time employment in any number of fields. I do have my own website and blog for that purpose. and Feel free to check them out.

    Sorry I've been away so long - but now I'm back, packed, racked and stacked to get going!!! I've survived a job loss, lap-band surgery, left hip replacement and I've seen the resolution of my type II diabetes and sleep apnea fall by the wayside. Life is looking GR8 in 2012!!!
