I'm a 53 year old man that loves his family. I have been married for 30 years and I have three kids. My oldest son is 29, my daughter is 26, and my youngest son is 24. They are my main support. I had to retire from teaching about three years ago due to a health issue but I started a second career as a full time musician. I'm the bassist and a vocalist in The Holiday Band( We perform some 175 dates a year. I also work part-time as a TV Host at a local TV station. I have always struggled with my weight but I want to get it under control so I do not develop diabetes etc. So far I'm fairly healthy but I know losing the weight will help me in the long run. Currently my wife, daughter, and I are on a weddding diet together preparing for my daughther's wedding in April. Wish us luck!

I'm a guy and I find Leslie's a great low impact workout when my knees are giving me a bad day. Gets me sweating.

Pharmaceutical Grade Protein Powder
I use Syntrax Nectar because most flavors have zero carbs and 24 grams of protein per scoop. No filler just whey protein.

Chicken wings
I need some help. I eat chicken wings on occasion mainly watching sports on TV or tailgating. I see on the site it says one wing. Is that the whole wing or the wing piece? I guess I should be able to figure this out but if I am right in my thinking a "whole" chicken wing will either be 81 calories or 162 calories. I can have a skinless boneless 4oz. chicken breast for 100 calories so if the whole wing (two pieces) is 162 then it will be no more wings for me. Any help on this will be appreciated.
