I'm TN Southern gal and I WANT and NEED to lose weight. My wife of 10+ years has cancer and I take care of her. I've noticed that when I'm stressed I tend to NOT Sleep and I end up watching movies and playing internet games. This is NOT how I pictured my life 20 years ago. I am disgusted with my weaknesses of being lazy when it comes to exercising. "Get busy Living or Get busy Dying" ~Shawshank Redemption~ I'm ready to push myself to limits that used to be so easy for me. Like running, Playing Baseball, Building and Remodeling, the list goes on and on.

Fitness Minutes: 110

My Goals:
My Short Term Goal is to lose 30 pounds by Thanksgiving.
My long term goal is to lose 150 pounds by Sept 4th 2012.

My Program:
I don't really have a set program. My life is consumed with caring for my wife who has cancer, our home, our 4 pets and 10 acre farm. Depending on what is going on with her health, determines what will be done with my day.

Personal Information:
I'm 42 and my wife is about to turn 56. she has been my best friend for 23 years and my spouse for a lil over 10 years. I have always had problems with sleep, forgetting to eat, severe headaches, and my weight has been like a yo-yo until 2001 and then I just began gaining weight and rarely losing. Other than being fat, I am very happy with my life.

Other Information:
At night when I can't sleep, I play pogo and on Facebook. I think I will now use some of this time to also exercise. I am smoker. I smoke about 10 cigs a day or less depending on my stress levels. I know I need to quit but I'm being told pick one or the other lose weight or quit smoking but don't try and do both at the same time. So I have chosen to lose weight first with the hopes that smoking will become less and less apart of my daily living.
