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".

Hi!
>My Fat Secret 9 (near top of page)>My Exercise> Click on Sleeping & adjust.
Note, all the minutes and hours of all your activities must equal 24 hours. If they don't it won't take. In that case go to any activity (sleeping,desk Work) and increase or decrease the time so all activities = 24 hours.

Mannever92,
I read what you wrote above and have turned into a toad. How do I get back to who I was?

You'll never again the athlete you were, but you can be the fit, lean person you are (under all the fat). Exercise is not the key to fitness, proper nutrition is. I am similarly limited in what I can do exercising, but I do exercise 5 day a week. Over the last year by healthy and calorie limited dieting I have lost 35 pounds. I look different, and feel different.
Next week I celebrate my 80th BD with all my kids, grandkids and great grandkids. None of them have seen me since my overweight beer belly self. I think they will be thrilled and surprised.
You can do it also. Light exercise, healthy diet and plenty of time. Good luck
