My name is Sal (short for "Salvatore"). I'm a 45 year old Army Reservist who currently lives in Ohio. I'm also a longtime runner who's completed ten marathons. In addition, I have also done weight training for strenght over the years as well. Despite all the physical activity that I regularly do, over the years I have periodically put on weight. I always assumed this was due to my overly healthy appetite and I would respond by dieting, primarily the Weight Watchers' system which I've done on and off over the years -- sometimes with success.

In the last couple years, things have gotten progressively worse for me regarding weight. At the beginning of January 2008, I reached my all-time high of 245 pounds!! I attribute my weight problem to several factors: overeating, slower metabolism as I get older, and my body becoming so used to my reguarl running that I no longer burn as many calories for the miles that I put in. Further, I was diagnosed as having hypothyroidism back in 2002. This may or may not be affecting my current weight problem.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! It's always great to hear from a seasoned runner. My training plan is actually on my calendar. Each day tells me what sort of mileage I am supposed to do. As things are gelling together, I see I need to move my 20 mile run. I don't want to do it too late or early so the jury is still out about that!

    Thanks again!

    Sal - I think you transposed your numbers on Daily Weigh In -- surely you could not be up to 273.4

    Hi Sal -- I would venture a guess that there are probably 3 females to every male on SP. I could be wrong, of course, and it would be interesting to find out. I'll see if I can learn what it really is.
