I'm Jim Roberson. I'm a 39 year old proud father of 3 boys and husband to a beautiful wife and loving mother named Patty (sp user: paroberson). Married for 17 years, we have both let the years pass by and the weight pile on. Spearheaded by my wonderful wife, we started this health quest journey together on June 10, 2012 for ourselves and (by default) our family as well. We are each other's supporter, motivator, and accountability partner. We have never used a plan as good as SP, have never had this much success, with God all things are possible and we WILL reach our goals! I have always remembered being FAT, so this journey is ALL new to me - WOW what an adventure. SparkPeople REBOOT started July 1, 2013 - have gained back some weight since October 2012 but not ALL I had lost - I've got to lose again what I had lost plus MORE and continue the journey!

My Program:
Planning out daily dinner SparkPeople Recipe meals a week at a time.
Using SparkPeople's diabetic plan of 5 meals a day, so hunger is not an issue with smaller portions.
Tracking all nutrients of all food intake and any and all exercise minutes.
Staying within my daily recommended macro-nutrient ranges.

Personal Information:
Besides spending quality time with my family, I enjoy playing drums. I have been playing for 25 years now, wow I'm getting old! Later this year I will be 40! But with my beautiful wife by my side supporting me and our 14, 8 & 5 year old boys keeping us active then we are determined to get healthy.

Other Information:
My long term goals include getting off and staying off all diabetes medications and being more physically active to the point of one day running a 5K! I do not have an ideal weight or BMI I'm trying to reach, I just want to be as healthy as possible.

    Hello from Canada! I saw your video post on the members video blogs page and it has led me to your page and adding you as a spark friend.
    I joined sparkpeople around when you and your wife did I think (I think I joined in summer 2012), and I had lost 20 pounds before falling off the wagon with the holidays in December 2012.
    On July 2, 2013 I exercised to an aerobics DVD for the first time in over 6 months (July 1 was our Canada day holiday) and am now on my own Sparkpeople Reboot just like you and your wife.
    This is why your story struck a chord with me.
    I'll also visit your wife's sparkpage and add her as a friend too.
    Looking forward to inspiring and supporting each other on our fitness and weight loss adventures!

    Sorry it has been a couple of months since I last visited SP so I just now read your message. Yes I do live near you. I am in Big Sandy so I am about a 30 min ride away. It is sometimes hard for me to get to Paris sue to gas prices but I would love to have some new friends that can give me support and I can support as well. Today happens to be my 1 year anniversary since starting SP. I am down 33 lbs. The holidays were a little rough as my mother-in-law passed away 2 days after Thanksgiving. I gained back 10 lbs. It is very nice hearing from you! God Bless!
