Believe it or not,this is not my photograph, but one of my beloved dog Mitzi. And of course my name is not Glaun, but Phil and my photo is somewhere else on my Fatsecret page. The name Glaun is my computer Gaming name. For those of you who game, I am most fond of MMRPG games and usually play them multi boxed.

I have been retired for 15 years now. My last job (if you want to call it that, really it was a 5 year extended vacation) was as a ski instructor in Park City UT. I met my current bride there and now live in Carefree AZ. Yes, the life style here is all in the name of our town.

I have three adult children, two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

My wife and I live by ourselves (plus critters) and love to travel. I have lived in several countries around the world and have traveled a lot. My primary loves in life are travel, Skiing, Scuba, and Flying. When forced to work, my primary vocation was law.

For 20 years, I was very lean and worked out daily at the gym. After I married this last time I did the typical retired thing, ate, slept and sat in my chair. I put on 30 pounds and got into terrible physical shape.

A couple of years ago we went to Kathmandu, Nepal to climb the Hillary trail part way up to Everest base camp. That almost did me in. I then realized how bad a shape I was in. My wife came to me and said she was concerned about the shape I was in. So she made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Get back to the weight and shape I was in when we first met and she would take me to Palau for a week of diving.

That is when I joined FS. As you can see, it has been slow and steady for me. 1/2 to 1 pound a week. I figure with my new diet and exercise program I will reach my goal of 193 lbs by December, 2013. (I am 74 inches tall)

So there you have it. I am glad to be in the company of so many who have the same goals as I. Good luck to us and as I read somewhere, "God bless us, everyone".

Why can't I loose weight faster
The above answers are quite right. However, for me, the answer is that it is just damn hard to lose weight. The answer lies in large quantities of Time, Patience, and Honesty.

I bet you have them, good luck.

Half Servings
You can do it by decimal also. IE .5 for 1/2.

Calandar is a Deal Breaker
Oh !, my. Facetious, how you have set yourself up for failure. I have to think your comment is Spam. If it isn't, then Mummydee is right on.

Winter Texan and too many visitors
Bennett Cerf (long ago famous writer) had the same problem as you. He solved it thus: After a meal he gathered all the dirty food plates and placed them on the floor of his kitchen. Then he let his two large dogs in, and being dogs, they licked the plates clean.
As Cerf and his guests chatted after dinner, he made sure that the kitchen door was open as the dogs did their job. Then Cerf, without rinsing the plates, stacked them in the cupboard.

Cerf swore that few if any guests stayed more that one or two nights.

A thought for your consideration.
