I'm BAAACKKK!!! Well...I'm happy to be here again anyway...:) I was on here way back in 2008 following my surgery and it was great. I managed to drop over a hundred pounds. Now that I'm struggling with a pain and meds issue I thought I would try it again. Fighting with post therpetic neuralgia and my meds had me down a bit and then I remembered you guys...Sparkpeople!!! I've decided to attack this with a fitness regimen to keep my spirits UP and my weight DOWN. As an official "Senior Citizen" now I realize I can't waste any time letting this thing ruin a single day so...time to get to work. I look forward to meeting you and if there is anything I can help with I'm happy to give it a shot. Nice to be back.....Mike.

Fitness Minutes: 9,369

My Goals:
Maintain a positive attitude while dealing with my challenges and getting my weight down to the 170s. Once I get my workout routine down pat I intend to incorporate some diet changes to eat healthier.

My Program:
It's all about being "active" for me. I've found the athlete I once was and I am embracing those active and competitive attitudes again.
I am using every tool I can find to modify my eating habits in a consistent and healthy manner.

Personal Information:
A husband, father, and occasional dog walker, I live in a small town in Oregon. I enjoy watching football, music (about anything but rap), reading and the passion of my life (after my wife) is scuba diving. It's the only place I can go and be "weightless."

Other Information:
Dog person although I like cats that are "mean" or nearly wild.
Love to watch movies...for entertainment...not message...:) and happily married for over 37 years.
