I'm a 61-year-old guy living with my husband in Clearlake, California. An accident in May 2014, along with 3 months in a wheelchair, forced me to think about my health and fitness in a new way. Now that I've recovered, I'm more focused than ever on achieving all my goals and then maintaining them for the long haul.

I am the Executive Dean for the Lake and Colusa County Campuses of Woodland Community College. I love my team and working with the students. This is an area that desperately needs higher education opportunities, and I'm grateful that our campus is available to help.

My Spark History:

Reached original goal weight of 173 on April 30, 2015.
Reached second goal weight of 168 on August 7, 2015.
Current weight: 164 as of November 5, 2015.

I am in the best shape of my life right now. I am so grateful to SparkPeople and all my fabulous friends who have supported me in this journey.

My Program:
Eat clean and healthy every day. Use the nutrition tracker to ensure that the balance of protein, carbs, fats, and fiber are in check.

Exercise every day. Use the Focus T25 videos by Shaun T for high-intensity strength training and cardio routines. One day of yoga-style stretching for rest and rejuvenation.

No excuses, no guilt!

We live in the Clearlake Park neighborhood of Clearlake, California, on the shore of the largest natural lake entirely within the state of California. The spectacular views inspire me every day.

    Hi Steve! You're welcome! emoticon We all want the same thing. If more people would focus more on what UNITES us than what divides us, the world would be a much better place. Wishing you and yours a beautiful day! emoticon emoticon
