    I am truly impressed. I am no youngster and the challenges in regards to approaching seniorhood feel insurmountable.
    I do not want to be rude but how young are you and what were your challenges?
    Seeing you gave me a shot in the arm!

    I turn 44 years old tomorrow. I was between 220 and 260 (averaged 240) for almost 23 years.

    I have bad knees (they grind). I had terrible low back pain. Those were my main two challenges to overcome. Dropping the weight has helped both, but my knees are just bad. There are some days better than others of course. My low back pain has improved significantly. There were nights that I couldn't even turn in the bed because it hurt so bad... spasms. Terrible pain. I still might have some issues once in a while, but NOTHING like I used to. I also had started noticing I was wheezing at night when I laid down. Not sick or anything. My weight was the factor as once I lost weight, the wheezing stopped.

    Hope this helps.

    All I can say is......WOW!!
