The struggle to become half the man i used to be . . .  


Without goals it is much harder to get things accomplished. I achieve more with focus. Therefore I am planning to have some short term and long term goals. My first 4 goals revolve around clothing I own but have not worn in years. As I get close to my goals I will update the pictures.

I have never owned a pair of Levi's 501 jeans and my final clothing goal is to be able to fit into a pair and buy them.

My Crazy flower Shorts have been sitting on the shelf in my closet for many years and will take me a long time to get into. Not sure if I will get into them before the end of this summer. Maybe by Christmas? But when I do even in the middle of winter I plan on wearing them :)
GOAL COMPLETE! 6/11/2010

My Levi Carpenter Shorts were the first pair of 'LEVIS' I bought the last time I was successful at loosing some weight. And I hope to be wearing them again on our vacation this fall.
GOAL COMPLETE! 5/25/2010

I bought my Drexel Sweatshirt in 1987 when I was a freshman in college. I loved my Drexel sweatshirt and wore it for a few years until it became too tight and it moved to the back of my closet. This past weekend while looking for something to wear I noticed it sitting quietly in the back of my closet. Currently it is a bit dusty and disheveled but it holds a high value in my eyes.
GOAL COMPLETE! 4/15/2010

My converse windshirt is probably the first piece of clothing I will be able to fit in. I have owned it for 15 years and being able to wear it again will be a sign that I am heading in the right direction.
GOAL COMPLETE! 10/09/2010

Do my first 5k run on Ocotber 9th and finish. Ended up doing Levi's Run in Lebanon 3 days before my 41st birthday!
This is what I weighed around my 10th grade year in high school.
GOAL COMPLETE! 7/01/2010

249 means I am closer to weighing 200 than 300. And closer to fitting into my favorite pair of shorts.
GOAL COMPLETE! 6/01/2010

This was my weight when I left college 20 years ago. Breaking this barrier will be a great day!
GOAL COMPLETE! 5/12/2010

I have only dipped back below 300 once before in my life since arriving at the 300+ category. This day will be exciting.
GOAL COMPLETE! 4/27/2010

The last time I was able to lose weight 6+ years ago my first goal was 320. I was excited to weigh this much and this is the weight people started noticing I was loosing weight.
