12/1/2018 - I was off the wagon again...well, sort of. I tried Weight Watchers/low cal and it just didn't work for me. I lost a few pounds in about 6 weeks. It was too easy to cheat. But my low carb had stopped working, so I had to try something different.

So I'm back on low carb for the last week. Giving it another go. We can't give up, right? Some days, I just want to say the heck with it and plan an early death. Then my wife (yes, we got married on Oct 7, 2017!) says, Hey what's up with that?? So I start again. Thank you for having me. I'm planning on losing 30 pounds by my 58th birthday (Feb 14, 2019). Here we goooooo......

I have been overweight my ENTIRE life. I have gone up and down, back and forth. Over the last several months, I have been backsliding and stalled, but I am now back on track. My beautiful wife, Rhonda, is helping me, supporting me, and loving me through this process. We are seeking and finding ways to stay motivated!

Member Since: 2/1/2008

Fitness Minutes: 1,494

My Goals:
I would like to lose 100 pounds this year. With God at my side and with Rhonda's support and encouragement, I know I can do it. I just have to stick to my plan. I'm back on low carb with lean proteins. I try to eat lots of fruits, veggies, chicken and turkey and stay away from fried foods, junk foods, and baked goods.

My Program:
Walking is hard due to severe arthritis in my knees. I still have a long way to go but have lost 120 pounds so far! I have been away from Spark People for a while but now I am back!

Personal Information:
I enjoy writing, photography, travel, video games, and most of all, spending time with Rhonda. I work full time as a quality assurance documentation manager.
