following: jmb3450's own diet
performance: gaining 1.6 lb a week

Male, 56 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 4 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 walk with ease and jog with little pain. Lab work on my blood is much better than before, cholesterol levels now excellent and blood sugar is in the normal range. My initial goal weight is 190lbs, where I'll re-evaluate and maybe set a new goal.


Heaviest known weight: 279 lbs.
Weight May 1, 2014: 254 lbs
October 10, 2014 – 221.8 lbs, over halfway to my goal.

Throwback Thursday!
Beautiful ladies all of you and beautiful as young girls also. Nicholaix, I have a leisure suit pic somewhere at home. Probably from sometime mid 1979 as my first daughter is in it as a baby. If I come across it maybe I'll post it.

HCB - there's another picture somewhere of me in a dress from a gag thing I did with a friend. The whole shebang including make-up and heels with a huge chest and Dolly Parton wig. Scary stuff. Won't be posting that.

Throwback Thursday!
A few hours early but here goes. From 1975 in High School. I'm in the grass skirt in the center. We were doing "There Ain't Nothing Like A Dame" from South Pacific. I had lovely coconuts. Smile

Favorite Snack Foods
I guess we're talking about healthy snacks huh? My usuals are light mozzarella string cheese, Dannon light and fit greek yogurt, an apple, or a homemade chocolate protein shake. I don't know if it qualifies as a snack but a sorbet of frozen fruit with just a little bit of dark chocolate in my dessert bullet is very satisfying and healthy.
