01/04/12 I'm starting over... AGAIN!
This is my third time around and I'm hoping that it's the charm. If I add up what I've lost on my 2 previous attempts at getting healthy, I would be over 100 pounds lost. That would put my below my goal. Knowing that is what really gets me fired up. If I would have stuck with the plan instead of quitting, I could possibly have already made my goal weight.

I have to make this work this time, it's either that or I'll just watch my quality of life dwindle as I get fatter and fatter. I don't want to be the one that the kids point at, I want to be a healthy, fit dad that can be a good role model for my daughter.

This time around, there are NO EXCUSES!

Member Since: 4/13/2010

My Goals:
My goal is to get myself healthy by permanently changing my relationship with food.

Mygoal is to get to 160 by June 1, 2013. It's going to be a long ride!

Looking for a Sparkbuddy!!!

My Program:
I'm working on watching what I eat, and also HOW MUCH I eat. I'd like to use the Wii fit to bump up my activity level and of course use SPARKPEOPLE as a source of support and ideas.


Personal Information:
I'm from Bear, DE, originally from Chicago, IL. I met my wife on America Online in a Country chatroom. I moved here to DE about 11 years ago and we have a 7 yr old daughter Mikayla.
