Default Great job!

Hi Brian,

Great job on the weight loss! Keep up the great work.

I found myself bigger than I'd like to be, so I started dieting. 25 pounds down, 10 more to go. Hopefully I'll be able to maintain my target weight so when my RV is finished (whatever year that will be I'll get to experience that roomier cabin and excellent performance...just like you!

Again, way to go on your weight loss. You are for sure going to inspire a lot of other pilots/non-pilots that, with focus and determination, they can do it too.

Default great progress!

Congrats on your progress! It gets addicting doesn't it, when you see the pounds melt away. Keep it up and stay focused! The end result will be well worth it. Last year I went through a similar change and can really relate to what you are going through. Great job!

Update....

I had my 3 month followup yesterday!



Still a ways to go but it is coming off! Been swapping from the TT to the Garmin AP and it has been much easier than when I originally installed the Dynon one and later converted from Dynon to TT.

Looking forward to just being labeled obese instead of super obese! 0.8% BMI to go!

Don't know you, but I admire you. Just read this thread from beginning to end.
Without this forum, I would not add this story to my lifelong database of experiences and observations. Good luck sir, and God Bless.

Better than 1/2 way home. Man, 170 sounds light.
