Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
How I lost 365lbs in 15 months
I met a woman randomly online playing the game Draw Something. Her name is Jackie and and she lives in London, England. She inspired me to start living healthily and to get into exercise.
In the course of 15 months, I went from a size 60 waist to my current size 38. I have recently gotten into running. I ran a 5k in Detroit in November, 2013. I plan to run a 5k in Ann Arbor this coming May. My eventual goal is to run a full marathon!
I recently went to meet Jackie in London in December, 2013. I spent 2 weeks in London as well as a three day trip to Paris. I went from barely being able to climb a flight of stairs to climbing the Eiffel Tower!!

Here is my blog:
