    Recently started lifting heavy stuff to lean out... Pretty awesome progress in a short period of time.

    Unbelievable. Excellent work. It certainly puts peoples struggles and excuses into perspective - my own included.

    Excellent job!

    I just have to remember how miserable I was back then, and I immediately snap out of whatever rut I may be in. I've definitely gained back a significant amount over those 4 years (about 20 lbs here and there), but I ALWAYS bounce back. I just can't let myself go back permanently. The colder/darker months are always a challenge.

    Thank you for sharing

    You are amazing! I lift heavy (not medically cleared for cardio) so I know how much work is involved! I have an invisible disability (I'm chronically ill and have pain issues related to my disease) and know how difficult it is to be consistent and work around limitations even though mine are way less than yours! Great job!

    You have emerged from a cave of fat and you look like a really wonderful guy. There are always some difficulties in life so the important thing now is to create some good habits for how you can comfort and strengthen yourself when life gets tough. You used to use food. Now you might use exercise, meditation, friends, reminders of how far you have come etc. I wish you every happiness.

    Holy smokes. 50-70 miles a week? Your a beast!!! You just radiate! Love that smile. Yes, maintenance is just as much a challenge as losing. And you should be proud. Keep up the good work!!!

    Yup, and I'm training for my first marathon this May. We'll see how that goes... O_o I have not gone more than 21 miles consecutively, so 26.2 doesn't seem like too much of a stretch... hopefully.

    I know everyone else has said it but you look great! You look both healthier and happier and I can't be sure if it's cause of your diet or something else but your skin appears clearer now too.

    Yup my face is definitely clearer after adopting a healthier diet. When ever I eat sugar it explodes though! Gotta stay away from the stuff.

    You look fantastic. I agree that maintaining is WAY harder than losing.
