Default What a Difference A Year Makes

About 1 year ago, at 48 yrs old, I was 270 pounds, just had a mild stroke, and lost my business due to my health. After a lot of self reflection, and a plea from my kids, on Nov 1st, 2011, I decided enough was enough. In the next 7 months I lost over 100 lbs, and last April I started lifting. I cannot convey how much weight lifting and getting into shape has changed my life for the better.

Here are some before (notice the treadmill has become a Clothes Hanger)and a couple after pics.

Anyway, thanks for allowing me to pat myself on the back !!

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
