Losing weight and getting healthy

I wanted to share a personal victory with you all.  You may or authorized not know that I used to body building, before I hurt my back.  Over the past 10 years,  I have allowed my weight to get a bit out of control.


I was walking about 25 miles a week but with Lizze’s failing health, I’ve not been able to get away. 

Anyway, I have decided to make some more subtle lifestyle changes, so that I’m at least doing something.  I really try to watch what I eat but I make sure to include tons of whole grains, fish, fruit etc. 

Something that I hadn’t been paying much attention to was how much water I wasn’t drinking.  For the past week, I’ve been drinking nothing but water and the occasional glass of milk.  In the first week of giving up sugary drinks, I’ve lost 5lbs.

I’m actually pretty excited about this. 

I know it’s not much but it’s a start and I’m anxious to see continued progress.  As things settle down more and I get a new/used treadmill, I will only see more progress. 

Until then, I’m happy to be making baby steps forward.  🙂

I think losing weight starts in our heads…Then we can find program that fits us and we just needs to stick to that…never failed tactic even if we use only treadmill or something similar we just need to be determined to reach our goals and ideal weight.


Well said


Walking is the best exercise  to lose weight . I lost my whole belly fat due to walking 2 to 3 miles everyday.

Rob, Ive followed your blog for sometime, and I have you circled on Google+. This is the first time I've felt adequate in experience to make a post. I cant bring myself to say I understand what you're going through as a special needs parent but I can tell you Ive let myself get out of control as far as health goes as well. 
Something I recently started doing and using is the tabata training program. You might google that and it might fit your lifestyle better due to its time constraint (very short duration) and price (FREE! lol).
Stay in the fight man.
