Flew today for the first time in two weeks...

This is what I found when I got in and hitched the straps:

This was tight 2 weeks ago!


Who is this guy drinking the milk shake?


He was replaced with this guy!


Almost to halfway to my goal!

Default Wow!

Brian,

I was just thinking that I hadn't seen a post from you recently and wondered how you were doing... Great to see you - and so much less of you now that you look like a new person!! That is just super! Thanks for the update!

Thanks all, I still have a long way to go but this is a marathon not a sprint!

I am as determined to win this battle with obesity as much as I was determined to build my RV and then later to rip out the panel and start over!

It has been a roller coaster of a ride the past 69 days but worth every minute of it.

Anyone that things WLS is taking the easy way out is full of it and they have no idea what they are talking about. It is just another tool (albeit a very effective one) to help one help themselves.

I am exercising like crazy now and will finish my first official 5K in a few weeks.

One of the reasons I am doing this is so that I can hopefully continue to enjoy my RV for many years to come. I want to be an example for folks in a similar situation health wise that it can be done with enough determination!

Down the road I will look to the VAF family to help hold me accountable so that I do not slip back into the old habits and reverse what I have and continue to work so hard to achieve!

I noticed I couldn't button my pants this week. Now I'm feeling guilty.

Losing weight is like building a plane - Keep focused on the goal and chip away at it every day.
In the past 15 months I have lost, and kept off, 40 lbs. Looking better is a great benefit but feeling better is even better! I have more energy and more metal sharpness.
Congrats and stay focused.
