    I was going to complain this morning about "having" to exercise. Then I saw your incredible post. Thank you. You're right. No excuses. I can do this.

    Ah my friend, that is hard work. The consistent part is the struggle for sure. I am glad to see that you've achieved that goal. It's so important that we share our journey. Thank you for that. At 55, I'm down 23 pouds and have about 50 to go. Your journey is an example of hard work and dedication. Celebrate..

    Bad *kitten*, dude!
    I am *exactly* in your former shoes. Same overweight. Same medical woes. Just started logging *everything* I eat. You look great and are a HUGE inspiration to me. I never thought men our age could really turn it around and you have completely proven me wrong. Thank you for sharing your story. I will read it again and again when I start to feel like I'm losing the faith.

    Awesome to hear! Just keep plugging along every day and you can do this. Have general goals but concentrate on just getting through the day and making it a success and so on. Have faith in YOURSELF. You can do it man! I want to be reading your success story sometime in the future.

    I'm so inspired by you and this post was EXACTLY what I needed right now. I just turned 49 and battling hormonal changes. I'm 50 pounds overweight. I went to the dentist today and my blood pressure was OBSCENELY high, stress being another contributing factor. I made a doc appt for Wed and I'm sure he's going to put me on medication to control it. I'm feeling pretty down about it. I'm never had a single health issue in my life. I really needed your post today.
