Hey! It's Derek!

I just realized that it has been over a year since I have updated this page text. Lots of things have changed over the past year. Here goes my spark history.

2006
Started out the year at my highest weight ever. 220lbs. Ouch! Time to get moving. I lost a bunch of pounds and managed to start running. Somewhere along I got this crazy idea to run the Honolulu Marathon for Team Diabetes Canada in December. Never mind that I hated running and was still about 50 pounds till I would stop being considered overweight. Go figure! Somehow I managed to raise $7500 for charity and survived the Marathon. More by dogged determination than by skill. I injured myself pretty good along the way and made it out to the other side of the year somewhat lighter and much more acomplished. Weight Start 220, Low 191, End 207.

2007
This was my year for me, and my family. I tried to take on fewer crazy projects and shed a few more pounds. I repeated my 2006 losses and gains again. I start the year and lose pounds for the first 4 months then taper off and gain some of it back by the end of the year. Weight Start 207, Low 188, End 198.

2008
Somehow this is going to be another crazy year. I am trying to finally achieve my long term weight loss. I am now finally closing on my goal weight of 165 lbs.

Start 198 - Current 168

Currently only 3 pounds to go! Yeah!
