Started using this site after news article I saw Apr 08. First just went on to get recipes and then decided to see what else there was on the site. I've learned alot from the articles, I know more about food than I ever did. I gave up smoking in Sep 07 after about 20 years and put on a few more pounds and then decided enough was enough.

Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. unknown

June 08 - half way to intermediate goal of losing 60lbs.

July 08 - changed goal to 70lbs. Had first setback on first vacation gained 2 lbs.

July 08 - I've lost the two I gained on vacation earlier this month and an additional lb. Need to work harder for vacation in Sep.

Aug 08 - lost a few more lbs - still working on goal for Sep vacation, have some new clothes I want to get into by then.

Sep 08 - lost a few more lbs, not quite where I wanted to be by Sep, but I'm still going on vacation.

Oct 08 - vacation was great, but now I'm on a pleateau, got to get the scales moving down.

Nov 08 - the holidays are recking havic on going down on the scales.

Dec 08 - Gained 10 lb over the holiday - just another excuse I need to avoid in 2009!

Jan 09 - after the blood sweat and tears of New You Bootcamp, lost 3 lbs and average 2-3 inches all the way around.

Mar 09 - had one of the best birthday's ever - but gained 3 lbs!

Jun 09 - lost brother in law then a week later lost Aunt, derail me a little but working on a come back!

Aug 09 - have a tumor in my heart, no cardio until it's removed!

Sep 09 - tumor removed.

Oct - Dec 09 - recovery is going very well, back to work full time and had a wonderful Christmas!

May 2010- Took the trip to SD that I had planned before the tumor, it was great.

July 2010- Trip to MI was awesome, major swelling in legs, new development, but guess part of getting older, but it beats the alternative!
