Well here we go again, Starting from scratch. My workouts have always been good. I go to the gym 3-5 times a week. Cardio and weights. My biggest problem is my diet, I am an emotional eater. With my wife being ill for 16 years and having no help my weight has been increasing steadily. Now that she has stage 4 cancer the last thing I think about is taking care of myself. In my head I say no more, but the next thing I know i'm sitting there just after eating something I know I shouldn't. I am going to give it my all once again. I know I have to be strong for her but I need to be strong for myself as well. 7/29/2018 is my new start date. I will utilize my spark people account for help and support to get me back to the me I want to be. . I am looking forward to feeling and looking better..

My Goals:
My goal is to get back to feeling good about myself. . I am just tired of looking in the mirror and not seeing what i should be. My goal is to work hard every day and make smart choices to what i eat. The other goal I have is to one day be able to teach a Taebo class on the beach every sat morning at sunrise. Free to all who want to join. but thats a ways away .......

My Program:
I started my program 3 weeks before joining spak.s.. this is how I did it, under 2000 calories a day, 5 small meals a day. 30-45 min cardio every day, weight training 5 times a week... I will succeed.... there is no stoping me.....

    Todays been a great day, I've been good. Just trying to make sure that I play more than I work. Lol. Putting in a garden for spring, it kills 3 birds with one stone. I get exercise, a clean yard, and fresh veggies in one fell swoop. After a couple of months anyway. Now, I must go shop. Have a great day ttyl. emoticon

    Hi, Just wanted to say thanks for your reply on the message boards, out of all the thousands of people on this site you and I are the only ones that ever have difficulty. We're either too honest oorrrr the only honest ones. What do you think? Anyway today I've done well; I just have to finish drinking my water and go exercise and get through dinner without cheating. It's a sinch I'll be back tomorrow whether I make it or not, I'll keep trying either way. emoticon Wish me luck! emoticon
