Four Years of Maintaining!

Saturday, May 16, 2015


Post Safety Harbor Athletic Club Run Recarb!

Short and sweet! Time has flown by! I started with SparkPeople (Thank you, DSSECRETS, my wife!) in Oct 2010. Started changing bad habits and developing good ones! Starting embracing Positive Waves and ridding our environment of the negative. Stopped with excuses and embraced challenges! And amazing things started happening! I saw my goal weight on May 16, 2011!
Never in my life would I think I would be a runner! And now...

I just ran my last race in the 60-64 Age Group...and won! I am a runner!

At 63, I became a Triathlete...

...and just did my first 65-69 Age Group this year at St Anthony's Triathlon! I also did my best!

The most important thing is I'm excited! I can definitely look to a long healthy future with D and Gianna! THIS is my ultimate goal and I will continue to build on it for the rest of my life! I ain't letting up! My Team won't let me!

Thanks to all my SparkFriends for the support, the inspiration and the motivation to see my goals!

    You have done great with the big loss and now maintaining! Wish I could say the same-GS just found some old pictures that I may have to hang up for inspiration.

    That is an amazing story!!! Congratulations--what an inspiration! I'm running tonight but I'm just a rookie; maybe I'll get to where you are in a while. I sure hope so!
    Thanks; I needed to see this today!
