Actually my name is Todd. I'm under construction. My goal is a year from now to not be recognizable from my starting point. The day I reach my target, I'm losing the facial hair. For now it remains extra chin camouflage. I'm starting the "Decision Free" HMR program today 3/27/09. If you have any questions about it drop me a line. 314-223-9287.
My main goal is to make a healthy lifestyle change and never look back.

My name is Todd. Born and raised is St. Louis, MO. I am 32 years old.
I have a dog named Mack. He is a Cairn Terrier and full of energy. I love my job. I manage a local bank in the Ballwin area. I enjoy reading. Mostly pool books, the kind that don't take a lot of thought, fast reads, and it doesn't matter if they fall in the pool. I listen to all kinds music. Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Phish, & Beatles just to name a few.

Saint Louis Spark People Rally-Please Come!!!
OK, so how's the MO Botanical Garden on July 17 at 9 a.m. sound? We could meet at the Visitor's Center and walk around for 2 hours-there's a 'Health Fair' going on the same day, too! If you're a resident of St. Louis County or St. Louis City, admission is FREE before noon-otherwise it's $8 for adults...the place opens at 9 a.m., so it wouldn't be quite as hot then, but we could do 10 as well...lots to do/see here & plenty of walking exercise & time to get to know fellow STL 'Sparkers'!!!
Hope to see you there-families welcome-check out the Botanical website for admission pricing

Hi and welcome to the HMR team. I started HMR Decision Free on January 26th (about 8.5 weeks ago) and have lost a total of 36.5 lbs so far... that's like 4.5 lbs per week! I am really liking the program so far but find it nearly impossible not to cheat just a little bit. I have about 15 other people in my class and they all seem to be losing and happy with the program too. I hope that HMR will be a long-term solution for all of us.
I like your dog... very cute! I have two Boston Terriers called Lila and Paisley. If you need any support or have questions about HMR drop me a line. I have come up with several favorite meals and snacks. I should also mention that I've lost weight in the past but it's always been a struggle to keep it off and to get it off in the first place. There was times in my life where I was eating very little and walking at least 40 miles on my treadmill per week. Now, I'm walking only 3 miles per day (21 miles per week) at a leisurely pace (this puts me way above the 2,000 pa minimum they say you need to do per week) and the weight is dropping off me. I still don't get it... it's just amazing how easily it's coming off. I struggled so much before and now with HMR it's like I really can lose weight and see results. That's why I say... stay strong through the first week and stick with the program... if you do you WILL see results. I felt crap the first week... felt so weak I wanted to sleep each night after work and nap a lot. I could barely stand working out. However, by the time the second week had come around my body had regulated I think as I felt much better. From then on it's been a bit easier. I'm not going to lie and say I haven't gone out of the box... there was one period where I went off the box completely for 4 days while out of town and I ate whatever I wanted... I regained 2.7lbs that week... but the next week I lost 7.4lbs. I think the program is amazing.
I don't know if they've given you the sheet yet that tells you how many meal replacements you would have to eat per week before you maintain your current weight? For me, the number was like 140 or something crazy! I only eat about 6 meal replacements on most days which brings my weekly total of meal replacements eaten to 42. Seeing that sheet really motivated me... it let me know that if I "stay in the box" I will be sure to lose weight each week (unless stress, sickness, or some other weird things effects me).
Anyhow, let me know how your getting on in the program. Keep fighting the good fight!
