In Fall 2007 and Spring 2008, I made a decision to lose some weight. I had just returned from a dream vacation (visiting New York City and Washington, DC) and felt miserable. I logged my progress on a blog ( but soon after the arrival of our first child I fell off the wagon.

Well, it is Spring 2012 and I gained all the weight I loss (72.5 pounds) back. I am feeling just as miserable as I was in 2007. It is time to give it another try. Let’s hope this time will stick.

Keep me accountable folks. I will try and update the progress.

Since beginning on March 8, 2012, I have lost 2 pounds. I’m supposed to lose 2 pounds per week on my program. Let’s see if we can repeat the 72.5 pounds loss and maybe do a little more.
