Joined the 2013 Winter 5% Weight Loss Challenge!

Last Christmas (2011) Mary (my wife) bought me a BodyMedia Fit armband. I have to admit that I really like it, but I did not use it to IT'S potential. Now as a bonus Sparkpeople has joined up with BodyMedia and the two accounts sync. (and it works well so far!!!) I love this because now I don't have to use multiple trackers.

NOW that being said, I have to be more consistent at tracking meals b/c when I do I eat better. I have a weekly goal to go to the gym (joined local Planet Fitness) or use my home gym three times per week.

I want to lose 1-3 pounds per week until I reach a better BMI goal. I am thinking between 210 and 225.

A little about me..I am married to a wonderful wife. Have four kids, three girls and a boy. Two dogs, one is eight (rat terrier) and the other is ten months (Tri color English Springer) The one in the pic got sick in Jan. and is gone. Also a rescued four year old black cat.

    Decided that I would not attempt(like before) and do a diet and workout regimen to change my lifestyle. And with the help of my wife Mary (whom I love and adore) and my kids I am on my way to change my life FOR GOOD.

    Just endured a week of uncontrolled post Halloween candy snitching. Got to the point that we through out remainder of candy(kids are not to happy) and got the family to get on board for a lifestyle change and not Dad just trying a new diet. I don't know why, but I have a good feeling about this go at it.

    Well started to restrict carbohydrates on Friday. So far so good getting some of my motivation back to do the workouts that I used to. I just need to keep working at it.

    It seems like I have the right goals in mind and am actually quite motivated to loss the weight to change my lifestyle. Although I just make the wrong decisions of what to do at the wrong time or all the right things for a short time..
