Update 9/13/12: As many of you know the last few weeks have been rough for me. I hit the 100lbs lost mark on 8/11/12 and left for a week long Alaskan cruise the next day. I walked a ton but came home 12 lbs up! My grandmother passed away while I was on vacation and once I was home I was busy clearing out her apartment. I lost 5 lbs that first week back a couple more the next week. But I was hit with some depression and stress issues and my weight went back up to 226. I'm pretty much over the depression, but on 9/5/12 my mom had a full hip replacement and came home 3 days later. So I am now acting as caretaker for her for a while. Getting in my fitness minutes while helping my mom and trying to finish 3 classes for school has been difficult. I'm finding it hard to get myself motivated to do anything. I'm trying to just let it roll off of my back but it's not so easy.

Update 3/25/12: Been pretty stagnant for the last 3 months, with only minor losses. The last 3 weeks have been rough, scale not working and life just feeling messed up, I know I've gained weight, I can feel it. So it's time for changes. I've changed my name to King_Slayer, I'm on a mission to slay the kings of Apathy, Lethargy, Poor Nutrition and Weakness. Changed my ticker as well to reflect my new starting point. My blog post titled WK 50 has more details.

My original About Me:
My name is Ken. I am a 41 year old single father who has let himself go. I was an athlete in my 20's until I herniated 2 discs in my lower back. Within a year I had put on 60 lbs. and in the subsequent 15 years I have added almost 40 more.
I am using the site to help me track my diet and keep me focused.
UPDATE: 12/31/2011 38 weeks in and I'm down 68.4 lbs.
UPDATE: 6/25/2011---11 weeks in and I'm down 31 lbs!

    Whoa that is hot !!!, about that time I have a wet face cloth on my head :) not a fashion statement but keeps me from frying my already old brain :)
    You just can't drink enough for those temps.

    It was amazing coming to WA where the temp soared and even your clothes in the wardrobe and your shampoo was hot!!! Wanted to go home to NZ where hot is 23 deg C :) but stayed and got used to it after a few years --we have been here 28 years now :)

    Hope you keep cool this week Ken lots of Frappucinos I think but you may need to go in and sit in the cool to drink them :)

    thanks for the continued support you wonderful man :)

    Life is real.
    Life is how you feel.
    Life is how you live.
    Life is what you give.
    Life is what you take.
    Life is making a mistake.
    Life is and can be hard.
    Life is how you play your card.
    Life is how much you love.
    Life is how much you will improve.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~I HOPE~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I hope that one day you buy every pretty dress you´ve ever wanted.
    I hope you wear them and dance barefoot in summer and laugh.
    I hope you smile at all the little things, like flowers, the wind blowing in your face. raindrops,
    the smell of fresh cut grass and the laughter of children.
    I hope you get that tattoo you´ve always wanted. I hope you learn to speak French Fluently.
    I hope you go to Paris and NYC and get lost, and you will be found.
    I hope you never stop singing, even when people tell you that you can´t – in fact,
    especially then, that´s when I hope you´ll sing the loudest.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I hope you buy a bracelet everywhere you go,
    or something you´ll always remember that place, until your whole arm is filled with them.
    I hope you Love God with all your heart. I hope you stop beating yourself up
    about everything that´s out of your control.
    I hope you have the guts to speak up when something is important to you.
    I hope you step out of your comfort zone.
    I hope you fall insanely in love with someone unexpected.
    I hope you forget about your scars – inside and out –
    and in the middle of all this strange and beautiful world you learn to be happy.
