    207 pounds lost




    I'm attaching a comparison picture from when I was 446 pounds compared to when I was around 255.  I'm now down to 239 (a recent picture from last week is also included).


    In 2007 I decided that I needed to change my life or I wouldn't live to see 40.  I couldn't walk more than a block without getting winded and my life was completely limited because of my weight.  One day, I meet up with some friends for dinner and I couldn't fit in the seat.


    I started off walking slowly each day and build that up to walking more and more.  I cut out the junk food and beer.  As I started to lose weight, I was able to increase the distance I walked.


    In 2008 and 2009, I continued to walk by doing several charity events such as the Avon 2 day walk for Breast Cancer and the Komen 3 day walk.  They marathon or longer walks were a big accomplishment for me.


    In late 2009, I took up running and have now done 3 5K races and I plan on doing a 10K race in April.
