I am a husband to an amazing and beautiful wife who allowed me to also father two beautiful kids, daughter is 8, and son is 3. I am a swim coach and personal trainer working toward personal goals as well. I am going to make my triathlon debute on May 15th (two days after my B-day) and right now, that's what I am training towards and using for motivation.

I've been using Sparkpeople daily since my family and I moved to Utah (except a little drop out session when a lot was going on in my life). I started out at 242lbs. and I have been losing steadily since then. I started this in Sept. 08 and was really not into it :(
I was 229lbs. then, I guess I should've been into it, maybe I wouldn't have put on the extra 13lbs. I now have a new outlook though. I am working toward goals and using the website as much as I possibly can and it's helping a lot.

I am weighing in weekly but I actually weigh myself everyday just to track on my P90X work-sheet. I've been doing O.K. but I'm not too worried about that. My weigh-in day is Sunday morning. I am training very hard for my first triathlon May 15th, it's just the sprint distance (750meter swim, 13.4mile bike, and 5K run) but I am very excited and trying not to let myself down.

    Thanks for coming to Raising Stepchildren as Own!! I apologize for not answering you sooner. YES YES YES lets come up with an April Challenge. I did start a water challenge. Look under Challenges posting. It's not too late! I have been working on revamping the team and figuring ways to get everyone coming back. I'd love to hear your ideas! Even be a co-leader??? emoticon

    Hello Dave. I think we've lost touch! Would like to know how things are going with you and your family. Hope everything is ok and that life is treating you well. Remember, I'm always here to be your sounding board.

    Hey, David. I haven't heard anything from you in awhile. Hope you are doing well.

    Stopping by to check in and see how you are doing and to hopefully encourage your journey. I am focused this month on my way of thinking about food and health issues. Proverbs 23:7 says, "For as he thinks within himself, so he is" (NASB). Our thoughts greatly influence the things we do and I am realizing that I too easily revert back to old habits because I am not convinced in my heart and mind of some changes I need to make. So I am deliberately working to take every thought captive to obedience, recognizing those thought processes and search out new ideology / theology to correct my belief system where health issues are concerned. I pray for you and I today as we work to change from the inside out in ways that make us new creatures through and through.
