Gipe weathers rough week with sick wife, losing job

I got back on track with workouts this week, even though the diet part was very difficult again as my wife is still in the hospital recovering from surgery. 

We thought we were into the home stretch, but had a setback as additional complications have presented themselves. It looks like at least four to five more days in the hospital and then to Great Lakes Transitional Care for some rehabilitation before she is allowed to come home. 

I have had some additional time to workout since I lost my job this past week because of the slump in auto sales and the fact that I was the low man on the totem pole as far as sales were concerned. 

I am back in the job market, so if you are looking for a good employee, please contact me at

I have not gained any weight and had some pretty good changes in measurements, so I am quite happy. If I can get back to a normal eating schedule, I hope to come close to my goal in the next two months.
