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".

cmgordonor: I do have a question. You said that you lost 3.4 pounds a week for 10 weeks. That truly is amazing. Especially since you have to subtract 500 calories from you daily RDI to lose one pound a week. If my math is right, you had to reduce your RDI by 1700 calories per day to lose 3.4 pounds in a week.
Would you share your original RDI and perhaps your calorie count so we might be able to use some of your techniques?

Has anyone tried Weight Watchers online program?
Weight Watchers was the first successful diet plan I tried. I was with it for several years and lost a lot of pounds. It was interesting and fun to try out the new ideas for recipes they gave us. Unfortunately, it required a lot of cooking which was fine with a wife who loved to cook. That ended when I became single and did my own cooking. However I have learned the principles of WW and was able to modify the program to my own needs.

I highly recommend the program as a sound way to lose weight and have some fun at doing it.
