Welcome to the Slimmons Blog. Yes you read that correctly. I am going to post my trials and challenges as I begin an 8 week National Body Challenge that is being set up by the Discovery Health Channel. Me and 15 others, including my wife, are going to each throw some money into a pot and the biggest loser at the end of the challenge takes it all. I figure that is a small price to pay to motivate myself and others to get healthier this year.

I have already purchased some exercise equipment that is nothing major but enough to keep me busy and hopefully shed some LBS's.

Hey George,

Just found your blog.

I've always fought my weight too, it's a real bitch. Those damn calories add up faster than I can exercise them off!

It's a shame how few calories our bodies actually need to survive.

I've been Type 1 diabetic for almost 26 years, and I know that controlling my eating and weight are a key piece of the control that seems to always be evading me.

Great luck with this - I know you can do it! Just stick with it, through whatever challenges and temptations you face, you are stronger!

I'll be checking in regularly!
