Hello, my name is Rodney. I have spent my entire life in Missouri. I moved to Kansas City in 1994 for a couple of years and I am still in the area. I still have a dream to move back to the hills of Southeast MO, but a job, marriage, and kids keep postponing that.

I have a son and daughter who are both in elementary school. I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world. We didn't kill each other when we both quit smoking, so I am confident we can manage this journey to improving our live and our health.

I love to cook and am always looking for new foods to test on my family, although many nights this means my kids end up eating PB or cereal, but that is their loss.

I have been active off an on for a couple of years. In 2012 I managed to lose 60+ lbs and got into the 275 lb range, but by January of 2014, I had put 30 lbs back on and was back above 300 lbs.

Member Since: 8/12/2010

Fitness Minutes: 79,520

My Goals:
My initial goal was to make my waist and inseam be the same measure.

In order to achieve that I have the following goals.
8 Cups of water per day
5 Fruits//Veggies per day
140 Minutes of activity per week and at least 10 minutes per day

My Program:
Very simple, track what I eat and get consistent exercise. Nothing is off limits, even french fries and Ice cream, but instead of ordering a whole order of fries, I will split an order with my wife, or steal a couple for my kids, and instead of eating a whole pint, buy single serving and not eat it every day.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Bollinger County in SE Missouri. I moved to the Kansas City area in 1994 to attend college. I have been here ever since. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and my family.

    Rod, love seeing that you've been logging the steps!

    This winter has been a tough one for me and I've been gradually getting back up to my pre-cold/holiday/frigid winter steps. We can do it!

    Keep up the good work and look at it this way, every day that you meet or exceed your step goal takes you that much closer to that birthday wt. loss goal!
