330 lbs. to Onederland in just over a year! (with pictures)

February of 2015 I weighed 330 lbs and was diagnosed with diabetes (on top of high blood pressure that I had for years). I got serious, came to my senses, and sought God's strength through prayer. I began a process of eating less, eating better, and moving more. In the last year I have now completed 3 5k runs (and run an average of 6 miles per week), I am off all medications for diabetes and blood pressure, and today I weighed in at 199.6 lbs. The first time I have weighed less than 200 lbs. since 10th grade. To God be the glory!8pyhf8okg374.jpg

    This post made my day. My goal is to be under 200lbs. Last year I started running and ran 4 5Ks. I stalled over the winter but have regained momentum. Great job brother.

    Thank you for the encouragement. I also stalled during the winter but it feels like I am back on track now. I want to get these last 25 lbs. off and then transition to maintaining. Best of luck to you in meeting your goals!

    Praise the Lord!

    I'm also finding myself in prayer often for strength, energy, and motivation. Started 367, down to 310 today. Look forward to surpassing 100 and much more.

    Well done!
