My Goals:
Enter a summary of your goals, or just a few you would like to share.

I set interim goals lotted out in 25# increaments. I do a little something for myself when I reach and maintain that goal for a week. I buy something for just myself when I reached #100 goals.

My Program:
Give an overview of what you are doing to meet your goals.

I got serious about my weight loss in 2003. It took almost 2 years to get below #300 mark. I do my weight loss with diet and exercise. This program was low fat & high fruit and veggie diet that I set myself.

Then I meet a lady who is now my wife. I then entered two years of just maintaining less than #300.
After we were married and settled down I started getting serious again (August 2007) but with a different diet plan that I developed because of my concern of blood sugar levels. I knew I had to minimise my carbs in my diet. I started with this at #295. Check out my ticker to see where I am now!
Update*** I had a Heart Attack on 04/20/2009 so now I am also a HEART Attack survivor.

Personal Information:
Where you are from, your name, your email address. NOTE: everything on this page is optional, you can enter as much or little as you like. If you enter something like your email address, remember it can be seen or found by anyone on the internet.

I am 45 years old and I have wonderful wife and a 7 (Now 8) year old son . He is just the biggest joy of my life. I plan on adopting him as soon as the courts will allow. UPDATE** Adopted on 12/17/2008!
I also have a 4 year old Black Lab dog. Who always has a smile on his face and two much tail to wagg around.

Update***4/8/2014 Well do to my heart attack and plantar facities and now DDD in my neck and back it is so hard to exercise that I have gained back about 100#s and I said if that happened then I would investigate WLS Surgery and that is what I am doing.

Hi, it's been a long time, but I am back and am committed to staying in touch. Please be careful my friend of WLS surgery. I have known a couple of people who had it and had a very rough time afterwards and they still have not lost the weight. My neighbor had it done also, she tried to eat what she was not allowed and would get very sick. I cannot tell you how many times she would be calling me when she got sick.
So you really have to watch what you eat, drink, take vitamins, etc.

Take care and please stay in touch
