My name is Tim. I am 43, 6'1", and 295 pounds. In the last six years, I've been as high as 315 and as low as 260 (after throat surgery for sleep apnea).

I am starting this journal for the public support and pressure of having the community at my back. I have been on and off the paleo diet for the last three months. Everything gets better for the week or ten days I am on it. I then begin to have cravings or an opportunity to eat something that I give in to. I am planning to get on the scale every Sunday morning. So I will report back then.

But this is a new start and one I feel very good about. Thank you in advance for your support.
