Half the Man

Despite a nagging injury, untold piles of work, and the typical garden-variety assortment of 30-something fatherhood stressors, I plan to lose 50 pounds in a safe, manageable and sustainable way over time, and with your help.

Despite a nagging injury, untold piles of work, and the typical garden-variety assortment of 30-something fatherhood stressors, I plan to lose 50 pounds in a safe, manageable and sustainable way over time, and with your help.

As a former Division 1 scholarship athlete, I find my current condition (slightly obese, if there is such a thing) to be entirely unacceptable and totally incongruent with the lifestyle I once enjoyed and wish to pursue again, long-term. I have tried a few over-the-counter remedies in a vain effort to do something about this, but have since learned that this is about lifestyle, not quick fixes. Hence, here I am on the Spark People site, as this appears to be healthy and filled with folks with suggestions and similar goals.

As for the "half the man" motto, I plan to do half of a lot of things, namely eating, in order to accomplish my sub-200 goal. For instance, I have found that drinking half the coffee leads me to drink twice the water, and hence, consume roughly half the food, as I am more sated when properly hydrated. There are many other halfs, but you get the idea.

I hope to learn from you. Let's do this!

Thanks for the workout music tips - I am pretty much into all different genres of music... except for real heavy and my daughter's screamo (escape the fate, day to remember etc).

I never thought of using classical! What a concept... so today on my free time I'm going to explore some Russian composers and see what I can find. I'm very excited about that - Thank you!

You were the first one to make me laugh this morning - thank you for that! The Fitbit is another activity tracker - it logs your steps, calories burned, sleep process and other stuff. I've found I do more moving when I physically see what effort I'm putting into it. No need to google now :)

And thanks for commenting on my blog - positive attitude is everything! You seem to have one yourself & it makes life and our challenges that much easier. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
