Hi, I''m Jeff; I am 50+ male coming from a weight of over 300 pounds.
I've struggled for a long time with diet and exercise, tried various programs and had some success, but nothing that ever lasted.

Been on Spark almost a year, made really good progress, losing nearly 40 lbs and getting to a much better place in my life, but since holidays have slumped and gained back quite a bit.

Resetting now and re-committing to a healthy and active lifestyle.


Member Since: 5/25/2015

Fitness Minutes: 20,218

My Goals:
Become fit to increase my energy and happiness

Adopt healthy lifestyle choices and habits to improve my quality of life for myself and my family

Improve my attitude and outlook to benefit all areas of my life, not just physical health (friends, family, career)

Measure my success not only by my weight, but also by measurements, blood pressure, blood chemistry and subjective assessments of mood and energy


My Program:
Re-engage with Spark community since that worked so well before, keep on tracking food and re-start fitness activities.



Personal Information:
I'm Jeff, I'm in the Chicago area working as an IT professional. Married for 20 years with two kids. Had a stroke when I was in my 30's (was healthy, no reason like smoking or weight like you might expect). Fell into depression and weight gain and have been struggling for last 5 years to get my weight under control.


Other Information:
Serious sci-fi fan, Dr Who, Star Wars, Trek, Firefly, that kind of stuff.
Rush Fan, Zeppelin, Floyd, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, you get the idea
