I've been overweight my entire life, but recently had an epiphany that I control my health. I love to listen to music, read, and follow sports, and hope to learn to love exercise. I'm a computer guy for a small school district in Arkansas. Favorite sports teams include the St. Louis Cardinals, K.C. Chiefs, and the Arkansas Razorbacks. I've also spent over 30 years behind a microphone in the radio business.

Member Since: 6/17/2012

Fitness Minutes: 12,134

My Goals:
To get to a size where I can buy clothing in any store.
I want to fit into an airplane seat, ONE seat.
How about fit on a rollercoaster with my son and ride.
Get off Type 2 diabetes meds and blood

My Program:
Tracking everything that I eat while concentrating not only on calorie goals but lowering bad carb intake and more lean protein.
Using videos here to build up an exercise program.

Personal Information:
I was born in Carlsbad New Mexico in 1962, adopted in Los Angeles in 1964, and in 1971 parents moved to Missouri where I was raised.
I've called Arkansas home since 1985 after bouncing around radio stations as a DJ in Missouri.
Graduated college and was married in 1996 and have one Son, Robert who is 12.

Other Information:
I'm kind of an all around geek, or nerd type. I enjoy working with computers and ham radios, along with watching all flavors of Star Trek. I love Spock with an attitude in the new movie. However, I do have a bad boy side as I also enjoy playing pool and texas hold 'em poker. I love the smile on my Son when he is happy and hope I'm helping himi to grow into a good man. I'm proud of him.

    Thanks for visiting my page. The gi diet is the glycemic index diet. In it you eat foods that don't impact your blood sugar numbers as much.

    Wanted to congratulate you for breaking into the Two's!!! I bet you were dancing the jig emoticon

    Great to be a teammate in the pound with you. Well, you got out of the pound with that weight loss didn't you!!! You're out with the well behaved Dawgs.

    We Dawgs are a bit unconventional - and Diane is positively fruity!

    But we love her and we love our team and teammates. I am so glad you joined us and I look forward to future challenges too.

    I usually was more active but taking care of Ray, 95 and almost 96, takes a lot of my time these days. But he's finally on the mend and I can get back to some exercise again! WooHoo!!

    Lazy by nature and a compulsive overeater - *sigh* - such is my life, lol.

    Huggers, dear Steve - Never give up!

    P.S. I was 12 when I hit 150 - so I can relate!

    I'm glad you liked my budget analogy. It helps to not "over spend". Have a continued good week!
