61 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 5 grandkids, was very athletic and in great shape in my youth but years of poor eating habits resulted in coronary artery disease, 5 stents in my arteries, and pre-diabetic blood sugar levels.

May 1, 2014 I got to the point where I was ready to seriously take control of my health and since have been working on eating better, exercising, and losing weight. I’ve gone from having difficulty walking due to my back injuries, to being able to jog and do sprints with no pain at all. Lab work on my blood is greatly improved, cholesterol levels now excellent and blood sugar is in the normal range. I'm off blood pressure meds and have greatly reduced my statin dosage. Reached my initial goal weight of 190lbs in December 2015.

However, maintenance has been a challenge. I got off plan, stopped logging food and participating in this online community. My weight got up to 230lbs by the end of 2018. I'm back again, committed to doing what I need to get back to where I was before, where I want to be again. Exercise is not usually a problem for me, managing what I eat is my issue. Successful maintenance = making this a permanent lifestyle change and sticking with it, so that is the goal.
