Today the scale said 173.2 pounds. I skipped 100 and went to a 101.8 pound loss today. I haven’t been eating too much the last couple of days with an upset stomach, so I dropped fast this week, which started at 178. This is so unbelievab... Read more
How would you celebrate a 100 pound loss?
Thursday, June 16, 2011      22 comments

I never thought I would get here, but in 5 pounds I will have lost 100 pounds since Oct 2007 when I joined Spark People at 275 pounds. I didn’t have a plan for celebrating this milestone. I just couldn’t conceive of it before now. ... Read more
I'm not a lost cause

The other night I was telling my son all about my recent ocean experience and how much fun it was. He, like me, never thought I would lose weight and stop being in pain all the time. He was carrying the groceries because I wasn't ab... Read more

I found a file of photos from September 24, 2009; about a year and a half ago. The occasion was my goodbye luncheon from 6 years as a Contractor for the US Navy. A look at these pictures should help with the body image problems I’ve been... Read more
I got cortisone shots in my wrist and hip

Why? Because I am going to be surfing this summer and I want to be pain free or pain reduced in those two places I will need in order to be able to “pop up” on the surfboard. I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in. Yes, a 51 year ol... Read more
Photos - The Bridge Walk was so fun this year
Sunday, May 22, 2011      12 comments

What a different experience between the two years. Last May I was so scared to walk over this bridge. I was scared to try, and I had a lot of fear of not making it. I trained from February to May, walking from a mile or less to three plus mil... Read more
How much weight to lose?
Friday, May 20, 2011      8 comments

I saw something today that made me start dwelling on my weight loss again. Before now, the numbers have been too huge for me to think about. Another person is on a team for (so many) pounds to lose. That made me think about how many pounds I ... Read more

This past weekend I took my son to a beach hotel north of here so we could just get away and relax. I planned on swimming in the pool and walking on the beach and trying to talk to my 17 year old without turning into a screaming lunatic. ... Read more

I'm trying to record my thoughts on dropping into the 100’s for the first time in at least twenty years. How can I celebrate crossing into the 100’s? This has to be a milestone I can commemorate, doesn’t it? My weight moved so slowly do... Read more
