I'm a married father of 2 who always seems to have too much on his plate to worry about himself. Somehow I need to find a balance in life and a path to get/stay healthy.

Looking to lose 20 pounds or so of fat before trying to put it back on as muscle. My weight as a number isn't really an issue, it's where I'm carrying it.

2020 Update...last Labor Day (2019) I set new goals and worked very hard. Counting every calorie, ensuring I got 10k steps every day, going on increasingly longer runs every Saturday and Sunday morning, and making an effort to eat healthier foods I achieved my goal of over 20 pounds lost by Halloween. I am now down about 30 and doing well maintaining. I run only once a week now but keep pushing to do a little better month by month. Annual physical at the doctors has shown improvements in most categories (cholesterol, blood pressure, BMI, etc.) as well. I currently have a 50 day streak of 10k steps per day (with some over 20k) so I’m not doing perfect but I’m staying on track. Setting goals and telling someone I didn’t want to go back and tell I failed I think was a good mental driver.

1/28/2021 - Between covid and the holidays I've had a good test to see how well my "maintain plan" is working. Gained about 5 or so pounds so still down just under 30 lbs from my peak in 2019. 265 days in a row of over 10k steps. Happy with my progress and will keep looking for ways to get better. Thanks to my sparkfriends!

    I like the community and the food tracker. I haven't found any app that's even close. Even FitBit's food tracker is off. Guess I'll figure it out lol. Its was nice weather yesterday so I painted furniture but I'll be back in the garden today. Things

    Of that idea. Its a shame they have to shut down this site but my tracker has never worked properly lol. I log weight & it doesn't show it in the graph like most people & I've had it randomly post I lost pounds and havent even logged weight lol but

    As far as through site, it seems no information will transfer. The Spark360 app isn't complete but I hear you will be able to track but basically will be starting over. Idk about the community aspect of it. They will have a FB group but I'm not fond
