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!

    ~**~**~**~**~**~GOOD MORNING~**~**~**~**~**~
    Ability may get you to the top
    but it takes character to keep you there!
    Be more concerned with your character
    than with your reputation.
    Your character is really what you are
    while your reputation is merely
    what others think you are.
    No one is born happy
    but all of us are born with
    the ability to create happiness.
    So today make others happy.

    Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
    You won’t find glory at the center of safety, but at its edge.
    You won’t find love at a place where you are covered,
    but in the space where you are exposed. You gotta take some risks.
    You have to not only pick up the dice, but roll’em. So go ahead,
    take the gamble. You have nothing to lose except the chance to win.
    Life is not long enough to spend it on the sidelines.
