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!

Hey there FFUSCO!

You left a comment on my blog a couple days ago. Hope you don't mind that I added you as a SparkFriend since it seems like we have a few things in common. I just graduated from college but I am looking to work in schools (right now I work teaching private music lessons to kids out of music studios). So I'm still probably building up my immune system to germs! My gym is slightly less accessible (it's in my apartment building used only by tenants) but I'm willing to bet I got sick from something one of my students had *sigh*

Anyways, nice to meet you!

Hey, I'm just coming back to SP, after a long year+ off. I was reading your profile and I agree about this being a lifestyle change, not about quick fixes.

For me, a supportive network and not trying to figure it all out alone is what has proven to be successful. It's always when I stop participating in the program that I fall off the wagon.

Wishing you an awesome & healthy journey ...
