First things first: If you send me a friend request, please send a note telling me why, too. I'm not here to collect friends. I'm here to learn more and make this happen. Collecting friends in the process but based upon those principles.

Why I'm here: I'm freaking FAT! I've been fighting this crap most of my life. I'm determined to learn how to put this together and make it happen.

18 months ago, I had lost 25 lbs very slowly just by lifting heavy 3-4 times per week. Then, I got online and started counting calories and couldn't seem to get it dialed in. It was very frustrating. I had also added quite a few "friends" who were there more for dramatic bullsheet instead of working together to reach our goals. I deleted my account and headed straight for the pizza buffet. Totally my fault. I'm not perfect by any stretch.

Then, some people in my office came up with the idea a few weeks ago to each put $20 in a pot and whoever lost the highest percentage in 6 weeks gets to stuff the cash in their pocket. Huh? Money and competition?!?!? Sheeeeeee, I got this! I immediately put everything in to place that I know. Instead of jacking with the suggested calorie count, I decided to try to go along with the 1,690 cal they suggested. So far, so good. I've lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks. Not monumental by any stretch considering many people my size are able to log those types of losses in one week. That's okay. I'm getting stronger, starting to get a little definition in a couple spots and smiling every time I see one of the other $20 contributors stuff another 2,000 calorie lunch down their gullet. I am "Thin It To Win It!"

I have tried (and failed) at this many times. I've had several monumental wins in life but this one thing keeps kicking my a$$. I have quit smoking, made it through a very grueling 5 1/2 month academy, earned a handful of degrees, etc, etc. This time, I will use everything I have to put this together too.
