I am 37 year old man who is looking for the motivation to start losing weight. I have tried many starvation / body killing diets. I had some success, but living in Chicago with a love for crap food never help my situation. I joined the Air Force, got a taste of single life, and blew up like a balloon! I now have a Gluten intolerance, HBP, and lower back pain. I need to surround myself with people who have the same goals in mind as me. Anyone out there??

Member Since: 8/1/2010

Fitness Minutes: 3,650

My Goals:
My goals are simple.

In the long term I want to lose 91 pounds and look like I did as an Air Force Airman. Roughly 220 lbs. I want to be healthy, off blood pressure medicine, and be alive to see my sons have a family.

Middle term - Lose my first 50 and be able to finish the Valparaiso Florida Duathlon (5k Run / 200m swim).

Short term - Be under 300 pounds and have energy to get out and enjoy the beaches of Northwest Florida.

My Program:
I am 30 days into Sparkpeople and loving every minute of it. My program consists of a gym (weight / cardio) routine in the morning and walking around 2 - 3 miles in the evening.

I am watching my diet carefully, but focusing most on sodium intake.

Personal Information:
My name is Jim. I am 32 years old living in Crestview, Florida. I am a proud father of an 8 year old little man. I have a wonderful soon to be fiancée (hopefully). I love to be outside, in the water, or geocaching with the family. I am a HUGE Milwaukee Brewers fan.

My e-mail address is jmk1980@ymail.com.

Please feel free to e-mail me anytime. If you life in northwest florida I am always looking for a cycling buddy or a fellow geocacher!
