I had a crazy, honest revelation with myself yesterday; If I do not make a positive change, I am going to die too soon. I have been on this journey with multiple fresh starts for 20 years. Yesterday, I really felt that I was going to have a st... Read more

I know it takes more than 3 days to see evidence of a change, but if I were to pig out on pizza today, it would be evident tomorrow. I have a events on Saturday and Sunday and if I keep gaining a pound a day, I will not be able to fit into ... Read more

I visited the RD on Friday for the metabolic test. I had to fast for 4 hours and do no exercise all day. I laid down and breathed into a tube for 10 minutes. The machine is a KORR MetaCheck. http://www.korr.com/products/m

The good news: She really liked my nutrition, including my cheat days, and the fact that I log everything on SP. The gooder news: She does not want me to change anything. She agreed with the guidelines provided by SP for me. The goodest new... Read more

We just returned from our honeymoon on Carnival cruises. We ate as much junk as one could muster in 7 days that it was kind of embarrasing. I did not drink much more that 12 oz of water a day, but PLENTY of alcohol, we ate 3 or 4 high calorie me... Read more

I am ONE pound away from my goal. That feels great. Sort of. When I weighed 200lbs, I thought I would be "perfect" at 180. At 181, I feel that I would look better at 170. I look good and I am ok with where I am, but my competitive side knows... Read more
