    Thank you everyone for your kind words here, messages and friend requests. Overwhelmed by all the :heart: :drinker:

    A lot of talk about this being a mean place on the forums - but I am on other message boards I wouldn't post my after pic let alone my before pic LOL This place is alright...

    Who dat say you gonna keep dat weight?

    PS Time of some new Saints attire. Great problem to have. Way to go awesome job finish strong.

    WHO DAT! My man! Pierre Thomas out - Saints on road in Philly today - ughhh hope they don't make me emotionally eat :laugh:

    Funny story - my brother and I both started losing weight at same time. I now fit in his Jimmy Graham jersey and he doesn't! Great weight loss reward.
    Great Job Ted!! I know first hand the journey you are on and the road seems so long.. I remember when I hit that 150 lb. loss mark and everyone was so supportive and congratulating me but all I could think about was yeah well I still weigh 410 lbs. but stay focused, stay the course, and I am here to tell you that in the end, it will ALL Be Worth it..... I am living proof of that.... Again Congrats!! and continued Success in 2014 and beyond!!! :drinker:

    Thanks a lot Ed - a message to you was one of my leaping points. Maybe next January Ill be asking you body lift advice :happy:
