48 year old white male, works as a training specialist for the Department of Defense. Most of my work is sedentary, save for a once-weekly (students) and once bimonthly (staff) study skills seminar, where I'm up on my feet and teaching for 60-to-90 minutes.

I coach runners two evenings a week, with a very hands-on style. I normally run the workouts at the same time as they, which keeps us all honest. Otherwise, my physical activity consists of swimming (60min) twice a week, running five to six days a week, and elliptical trainer workouts two to three times a week, all at moderate-to-high intensities.

I was at 160 pounds, give or take, for a good period of time, until I started getting into triathlon. The swim workouts definitely added muscle mass in my upper body, but I also used it as an excuse to eat more. Thus, I ended up gaining ten pounds in the past two years. The weight is (often) tolerable; my primary care physician has told me to not be concerned about the weight in light my present (good) health. However, I've refocused on running (half-marathon-to-marathon) where the excess poundage can mean a four-to-eight minute difference in race performance, depending on the distance.

My nemesis to this point in the game has been junk food. So, keeping a log of my food intake has really made me mindful of what exactly I'm eating in quantity as well as quality. Boy, have I made some bad decisions over time, thinking they were not so wrong.

Feeling your pain. Wouldn't be back to the grind if it weren't for a couple of docs in rapid succession. The snacks aren't so much my achilles heel as much as the beer...which often leads to the snacks. Staying busy at other things and drinking water/coffee/tea/seltzers hasn't hurt. Hang in there.

Holding steady - that's a good thing. Strength and endurance seem to be coming along nicely. Eating less junk but still having the occasional indulgence.
