Everything You Need To Know To Begin A Successful Weight

Everything You Need To Know To Begin A Successful Weight Loss Journey

Summer is around the corner, and you may want to look your best for your swimsuit! You can do it alone, but establishing a routine will increase your chances of success.

A good way to maintain weight loss is to stop eating several hours prior to bed. Do not eat right before going to bed: you will not burn any of these calories and they will be stored as fat. Keep your mind occupied at night, by reading for example, to keep yourself from being tempted to overindulge in food.


My weight is up, I binge eat on occasion, and I am depressed about my situation, which is, I was doing so well this time last year. I was down to 319 pounds, I was strong, and I felt great. Now my weight is up to 380, I’m still strong, but now I just feel blah.

In the past 10-12 mos or so (basically since I hurt my back) I’ve been on the roller coaster of gaining weight then losing weight, and this cycle keeps repeating. My all-or-nothing thinking is at an all time high. I’m either doing really well or really bad.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

I wrote this post about my mom on Mother’s Day 2009.  I lived in New York at the time, and this year I’m lucky to live close enough that I can spend the weekend at her house with her.   I couldn’t ask for a better mom.  She is unconditional love personified, and I am grateful and lucky to call her Mom.


2013 Tour De Cure in Birmingham, AL


I rode in the 2013 Tour de Cure in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday, and had a blast. My day didn’t start out very well. I woke up tired for some reason, then I couldn’t find any coffee before the ride started. Then, to top it all off, I fell down when I first started to get on my bike. Fortunately this happened at my truck. Finally, when the bike fell, my rear derailleur was bumped, which caused it to rub on the rear wheel spokes. Not good. I was relieved to find the Cahaba Cycles SAG vehicle. The mechanic took care of me.
