Joined the 2013 Winter 5% Weight Loss Challenge!

Last Christmas (2011) Mary (my wife) bought me a BodyMedia Fit armband. I have to admit that I really like it, but I did not use it to IT'S potential. Now as a bonus Sparkpeople has joined up with BodyMedia and the two accounts sync. (and it works well so far!!!) I love this because now I don't have to use multiple trackers.

NOW that being said, I have to be more consistent at tracking meals b/c when I do I eat better. I have a weekly goal to go to the gym (joined local Planet Fitness) or use my home gym three times per week.

I want to lose 1-3 pounds per week until I reach a better BMI goal. I am thinking between 210 and 225.

A little about me..I am married to a wonderful wife. Have four kids, three girls and a boy. Two dogs, one is eight (rat terrier) and the other is ten months (Tri color English Springer) The one in the pic got sick in Jan. and is gone. Also a rescued four year old black cat.

    Yes, what JIBBIE49 said! We have 6 years into this, and those years involved ups and downs, but we can do this! I'm back for good this time and I'd love to be able to talk to you, my friend.

    Hey, I'm still doing Weight Watchers. I gained the past 2 weeks, but this week I'm back on track. Maybe you could try eating more fresh fruits and veggies. We're allowed those in unlimited quantities with WW, so why not with any other diet unless you're doing low-carb? It would keep you from being hungry. I can give you some super easy recipes if you want!
