Default Thanks for your support.

I am almost embarrassed to post this before pic. I put everything I had into chasing a 2,000 raw total last year, and it nearly cost me dearly.

Here I am 9 months later, approaching my 47th birthday. Thanks to everyone who supported me during both journeys.

I hope I've managed to give some support in whatever way. Not least because you are awesomely supportive of all of us here (and probably a number elsewhere). But not just that.

So anyway, you both well and truly earn and deserve it, IMO.

Superb transformation. The before and after snaps should be on the transformation thread

Onwards to the stage now.
