We had our final challenge this past week at the YMCA.  I worried all week about swimming. I tried to swim the first length on my back kicking like crazy.

Can you say, "Glad it's almost over?" The second half of the year has got to be harder than the first six months.

The FIT Challenge is almost over. I think all of us (the contestants) have come a long way. I hope my healthy eating and exercise will become a way of life for me.

I had Thanksgiving weekend off and always seem to gain weight when that happens. What made it worse was that I got an email from FIT editor Brandi that it was my turn to get weighed this week; I thought it would be Keisa White, another contestant.

Had another first this week. I entered a 5K on Thanksgiving Day. The Turkey Dash sponsored by The Gym in Huron .

Talk about excitement. Sugar-free Jello was on sale this past week at Schilds IGA! My wife Linda bought about 12 boxes.

I enjoyed my three-day weekend, but it was back to reality this week. I will probably work every day until Thanksgiving. With Christmas coming soon, the extra money will be nice.

Wilson: 'Back in the day my lunch was a feast'

Another week gone. The time is just flying. I've decided I'm not that crazy about exercise because it makes my whole body hurt.

I had a good week with my outdoor activities. Rode my bike a lot and got to walk the dog some. It sounds like that will be coming to an end with all cold weather that's coming. I'm glad I got the bulk of my weight loss in already because it's harder for me to exercise inside.

I got my results back from my visit to the doctor. My overall cholesterol is down, but my bad cholesterol is borderline high. How did that happen ? The blood work from my liver test was a little off. I have to retake that in a couple of weeks. I'm trying not to worry about it too much.
