Over the next couple of days we will be working to determine our weight loss goals for those that haven’t decided yet. We are setting out to lose the weight and maintain the weight loss through St. Patrick’s Day 2008.

250xCIMG0005.JPGTo kick things off, I of course needed a new look. For the first time since I was in high school, the moustache is gone – as is Grizzly Adams beard. That combined with my ever-lengthening hair will make it seem like I am watching some other fat man in the mirror as he drops the pounds.

I really believe this is going to be a lasting effort because unlike my previous attempts where I had no real support system, we will use peer pressure to keep everyone honest and motivated.
