It really is possible

Its been a great week so far. We closed on a house purchase (patiently waiting on sellers to get it together for 3+ months), reconnected via email with a very large friend (600+ lbs) and tip toed into the weight loss topic to talk about what I am doing only to find that he has lost 87 lbs over the last 4 months, and I weighed in 7.7 lbs lighter than lasts Mondays check in.

I started out at 426 lbs and am at 353. Over the last decade I had gotten to a place where I did not think I would ever be able to deal with this problem. I still have at least 100 lbs to go but I now KNOW that I can do it. My very large friend can do it. We all can.

He and I agreed to get together soon and split a carrot. You guys and gals are all invited.

Keep the faith.

Tim

    You say you started out at 426? You've lost a lot already! You need to go back in to the "check-in" feature at the bottom and make a past entry with the weight you started, the 426. You deserve to see just how much you've lost everytime you see that ticker. You are an inspiration!

    Awesome, 80 lbs is great and you truly proved to yourself already that you can do the additional 100 lbs.

    Your accomplishment is inspirational. Congrats
