Fat Dad Reduction Plan

In 2010 I lost 50 pounds (241 to 191) in six months and actually achieved my weight loss goal! :^D

The tools on Sparkpeople were a big part of that, especially being able to track my food intake and keep myself accountable to myself. I never could find the time to seriously blog and chat here ... I'm amazed at how much time people seem to find for the social tools.

So now it's 4/1/2013 and I'm back again having regained all the weight. :^(

This was mostly because I got a new job which sucked up a lot of my time and knocked me out of my exercise habit. Of course, that's a kind of lame excuse because I also fell back into my old poor eating habits, and my new job didn't force that on me!

Maybe if I had been friending others here I would have had a better support network to keep me accountable. I'll have to work on that this year.

My Goals:
I'm trying to avoid a day in the future where I've developed a serious medical condition that might have been avoided if I took better care of myself.

So, obviously, the goal is to lose the weight. But I really need to make some lasting lifestyle changes and learn the discipline needed to stick with it.

I'm not setting any crazy goals like 'run a marathon'. I'm trying to develop habits that I can see myself sticking with for the long term.

My Program:
Desserts are a big downfall for me, so I'm only allowing myself to have dessert once a week ... forever. Hopefully this the first of a few long-term lifestyle changes.

Six days a week of cardio (30 minutes of bike, elliptical, Nordic Trac, rowing or running). I'm cheap (just ask my wife) so no gym for me ... exercise is outdoors or on equipment in my basement.

Five to six days a week of strength training. I'm focused on doing many reps of relatively light weight using good form.
