Friday, April 06, 2012      3 comments

Well, this has been a challenging week. For the first time in 10+ years, I have been unemployed since last Wednesday. I have applied for about 10 positions, and have my first interview today in an hour. I am excited and nervous. I realize al... Read more
3/23/12 - Day before weigh-in
Friday, March 23, 2012      3 comments

This week, I will be interested to see if I made much progress with the scale and body fat. I was slightly more relaxed with my diet because of my birthday, but overall I know I ate healthier than I would have in the past. Last night, I ... Read more
4 Hour Body---just another fad diet? And some other rambling...
Monday, March 12, 2012      3 comments

I have been doing my own combination of the 4 Hour Body and the Eat to Live diet for about 2 months now. In those 2 months, I have lost 31 pounds. I have no plan to stop this diet, because (A) I am never "starving", (B) The vast majority of th... Read more
This was an answer I had on one of the message boards....

About how I have altered my life since joining SparkPeople. I thought it was good enough to add as a blog so I can remember (in case I ever get off track). I have completely altered my diet. I now eat more white fish, vegetables, beans,... Read more

I see that number, and it is still hard to comprehend. First of all, how I managed to get as heavy as I was to begin with. However, when I think of the last "almost" 2 years....and the weight loss roller coaster I have been on, I have to brag ... Read more
Goal Met!
Monday, February 27, 2012      7 comments

My most recent goal was to get to 225 by April. I met that goal this weekend! Rewarded myself with a new pair of jeans...which I needed because the pair I bought 25 pounds ago was bunching up with my belt. Yesterday, I hurricane-cleaned our e... Read more
Lovin' It!

After my weekly weigh-in/body fat measurement on Saturday morning, I almost cheered loud enough to wake my wife. Down another 3 lbs and 1% body fat from the previous week, I can officially say I weigh less than I did when I MET my wife. I can'... Read more

Yesterday, I put on my new UnderArmour shirt that I bought to wear while exercising at home. My 12 year old son looked at me and said, "Dad! You look like Superman!" I know he is in the top 5 biased people in my life, but that quick comment r... Read more
Change in weather

I've been spoiled. We have had an unusually warm Winter, and now, it seems that luck is running out. Cloudy, rainy, and cold....always seem to get me a little down. But compound that with an ill wife, ill child, and trying to fight off a coug... Read more
I love this website!
Thursday, February 02, 2012      4 comments

So many inspirational, uplifting, relevant stories, recipes, and most of all, other people fighting the same battles I am! I have said this before, but I believe one of the key reasons I am starting to succeed is because of ALL of you fellow Sp... Read more
1/31 - stay on track
Tuesday, January 31, 2012      3 comments

Last night after dinner, the leftover pineapple upside down cake from my wife's birthday (1/29), was screaming at me to eat it. I told myself I could have a piece - even though it is forbidden on the dietary plan I am following - but only if I ... Read more
The Weight Loss Battle
Monday, January 30, 2012      0 comments

I do believe "battle" is a good term for the uphill climb of trying to lose the weight that is so easily put on over the years. A battle is a conflict between 2 or more sides coming together against each other - until one side wins. The truth ... Read more
Another small step for mankind, but a huge triumph for me!

My suits have been taken in as far as they can go and they are bunching up to the point of looking ridiculous. My dress shirts are silly-looking because the neck is too loose, and today I had to buy a new belt because the other one was on its f... Read more
Another small victory...
Thursday, July 21, 2011      0 comments

In the last 30 days, I had to have my suits taken in for the first time in 5 years. This is the least I have weighed in 5 + years. I had to buy 2 new pairs of slacks because t... Read more
Back in the saddle again...
Monday, June 27, 2011      0 comments

It seems more and more of my content is based on not being consistent. Access to SparkPeople's full website is somewhat limited to me because of my non-stop daily life of work and family. The good news is that I have lost another 5 lbs in the ... Read more
