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 !!
