- 2016-11-04: Made lots of progress with weight loss! But still have about twenty pounds to go. Now feeling the need to take on a similarly massive challenge of fixing my lifelong problem of poor sleeping habits.

- 2013-08-25: I've renewed my efforts to finally lose all of this weight I've been carrying around since 1989, and have made a lot of progress.

- 2010-01-24: Okay, that was still the healthiest I have been as an adult but it didn't last long. :-) I think my routine was unsustainable and I did not have enough solid habits in place so when the going got tough, I reverted. NOW, I feel like I'm prepared to make the right changes and make them stick indefinitely. I'm confident and excited about the future!

~ 2007-04-01: I am the healthiest I've been in at least ten years and want to keep my momentum. I'm looking for good online tools to help in several ways and this is the latest one I've tried.

My Goals:
My goals are:

- To get my weight down to around 180 pounds. It's been so long, I don't know what that looks like. :-) Might need to tweak that up or down.

- To substantially lower my cholesterol

- To lower my blood pressure

- Get 7+ hours of sleep EVERY SINGLE DAY

- Look awesome naked!!!

- Fix my shoulder pain

- Fix my back pain

My Program:
Didn't really keep up with the whole underwear-pic project. :-) Maybe resuming is not a bad idea. . . . Anyway, my program consists of. . . .

- Eating under 2,300 every day (that's my TDEE - 200 calories)
- . . . or at least sticking to my weekly calorie total if I were unable to stick to my daily target every day
- Going to the gym at least five days per week
- Track all of my eating
- Track my weight daily in Hacker's Diet so I can see the pretty and encouraging trend line

Part of my old program was to post regularly photos of myself in my underwear so I would be publicly accountable for losing weight. :-) That really didn't work! Plus, I only posted photos once.

My program now entails:

- bodybugg
- dramatically reduced calorie intake
- simple menu plan that repeats every day
- moderate increase in activity level
- eating at regular intervals throughout the day

Personal Information:
Same situation but now we live outside Jackson, Mississippi. I'm attending Western Governors University ( in pursuit of my B.S. in Software Development.

I'm in Washington, DC and in love with the woman of my dreams.

We each have the cat of our dreams, the countertop of my dreams . . . other things from dreams. . . .

Other Information:
I'm vegan, striving to live in the most peaceful, harmonious way I know, former smoker, techno-geek, musician at heart.

    TRIMROCKER, I have been following: Littlehales, Nick (2016-10-27). Sleep: The Myth of 8 Hours, the Power of Naps... and the New Plan to Recharge Your Body and Mind . Penguin Books Ltd. Kindle Edition.

    It is taking a while to absorb all this information into my daily activities, but what I have learned so far is working for me. Sleep deprivation is really bad. There were times I was so exhausted that I was afraid to drive my car. I can certainly recommend this book by this sleep coach. Do check it out on Amazon. He is a sleep coach for professional athletes.

    Good luck. emoticon Roberta
