Well, maybe not, but I am continuing to progress. I started back on the day Jordan left for Brazil. It was my way of dealing with another child leaving home for an extended period of time. I was able to up my speed on the treadmill again today. I started out on a fast walk on August 26 (4.5 on the treadmill). Today I increased it to 6.0. I have lost 22 pounds. I'm not sure if it is the weight loss of the movie I get to watch every time I go run, but I am motivated. I am hoping to reach my goal weight this time. That means I have only about 65 pounds to lose. On another positive note, I am down about 3 inches on my waist. It is nice to get back into some slimmer pants. Jonathan is trying to get me to start lifting on some of the days with him. He is taking a weights class in school. I just need to lose some more weight and then I will start lifting weights (right now I carry around enough of my own weight).
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
