Wheat Belly...
Monday, June 23, 2014      2 comments

So exactly 4 weeks ago I decided to go grain-free. I read a book called Wheat Belly to get me going. It didn't actually start out as a diet or weightloss strategy. It began when I realized that the food I was eating was making me sick. Though... Read more

I bought my first kettlebell yesterday. I've loved watching people workout with them on tv and have always wanted to try it - especially since I'm not big into weights but need the strength training. I bought a 10 lber to start with and will h... Read more
To the trash with that dumb scale...

So my scale finally gave the ass. I buried it in the dumpster. It's been kind of freeing to not feel that urge to step on it every morning, noon, and night, before meals, after I used the bathroom... obsessing, obsessing... I will likely repl... Read more

It's really been like 12 days since I saw an actual change in my weight. I've been stuck at 230 (and even slightly higher) for a while - but I wasn't really eating right or exercising like I needed to. Just with Easter and other daily stresses... Read more
C25k ~ Day 1

Wow. Okay, so I just started this today. I had been kind of curious about it for a few weeks, but hadn't really checked out the training plan. I finally did that today, and it looks very manageable. I figured... why wait any longer? I... Read more

So this doesn't have anything to do with anything to do with this site - but I thought I'd write a quick blog about it anyway. My 9 year old son Tristan, broke his collar bone on April 1st. It was a bad, complete break. They put him in a ... Read more
The first 15!!
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      4 comments

I almost didn't weigh this morning. I have been eating terribly for almost a week, and I was sure I had gained. I've tried getting back on track the last couple days... and I'm doing better, but still not as good as I was over a week ago. I f... Read more

I had a bad week - mostly the last few days as far as nutrition goes, but I haven't exercised in a whole week. I worked extra hours this week,which left me totally wiped out - so instead of eating right, I bought Taco Bell on Thursday... ... Read more
Progress of some kind...
Saturday, March 28, 2009      3 comments

I think I have finally gotten to the point of NOT thinking about food on a continual basis. You know when you're on a 'diet' and all you can think about is what you should NOT be eating, when its going to be time to eat AGAIN, what you'r... Read more

A couple years ago ,when I was active on SP the first time, I made a buddy with a wonderful lady who isn't on Spark anymore - and I haven't been able to reach her by email :(. We started a reward exchange between the two of us. For every 5 lbs... Read more
I just can't believe it.
Thursday, March 26, 2009      1 comments

The pounds are really just flying off. It seems I have finally figured it out. Eating right and exercise... what a concept. In the past I have tried mostly low carb - more South Beachy than Atkins - and it worked for a while, but I always sta... Read more

I added new 'Before' pics taken just today... There is a bathing suit involved. I'm really appalled, actually (side view in particular). And I'm sorry you have to witness it... but with any luck....we'll see fast changes. This is just one mo... Read more
