I've been overweight my entire life, but recently had an epiphany that I control my health. I love to listen to music, read, and follow sports, and hope to learn to love exercise. I'm a computer guy for a small school district in Arkansas. Favorite sports teams include the St. Louis Cardinals, K.C. Chiefs, and the Arkansas Razorbacks. I've also spent over 35 years behind a microphone in the radio business
I'm now closer than I've ever been to my goal weight of 225, which is what I weighed my freshman year of high school. 65 to go! .

Member Since: 6/17/2012

Fitness Minutes: 24,975

My Goals:
To get to a size where I can buy clothing in any store. (I've made this one)
I want to fit into an airplane seat, ONE seat.
How about fit on a rollercoaster with my son and ride.
Get off Type 2 diabetes meds and blood (I've made this one)

My Program:
Tracking everything that I eat while concentrating not only on calorie goals but lowering bad carb intake and more lean protein.
Gradually build up to run the Cardinals Care, Stan Musial 6K race in St. Louis

Personal Information:
I was born in Carlsbad New Mexico in 1962, adopted in Los Angeles in 1964, and in 1971 parents moved to Missouri where I was raised.
I've called Arkansas home since 1985 after bouncing around radio stations as a DJ in Missouri.
Graduated college and was married in 1996 and have one Son, Robert who is 12.

Other Information:
I'm kind of an all around geek, or nerd type. I enjoy working with computers and ham radios, along with watching all flavors of Star Trek. I love Spock with an attitude in the new movie. However, I do have a bad boy side as I also enjoy playing pool and texas hold 'em poker. I love the smile on my Son when he is happy and hope I'm helping himi to grow into a good man. I'm proud of him.

    Thanks for the blog comment. I totally understand it took HOURS of talking myself in to doing something. It was raining and I didn't want to be outside but it didn't mean I couldn't do something inside I just CHOSE not to. If it hadn't cleared up I probably wouldn't have done anything and then I would have felt like crap. Somedays it works out and some days it doesn't. When it doesn't is when we need that little extra kick in the bum! Hope you're having a great day :)

    Adding and subtracting like a first grade math teacher!!! I was very ill yesterday, know I lost afew pounds,, not enough, but I will take it(Or lose it)!!

    I have been taking 7 keto DHEA for metabolism, it is working on me,, looser pants,, slowly but surely.. so glad you enjoyed the pre-packed meals,, refill them every week and you have lots of free time later!! That is how I do it,, no measuring later either,,, makes me feel better when I have it ready and know I am within range!!
