Thanks everyone...yalls comments make my heart warm.

For any of you guys that are struggling, I can't stress enough the importance of doing it with someone. The only way I've been able to keep going is the accountability and support I get from working along side someone else. my current fitness partner has quickly become my best friend, and we push each other daily to get one step closer to the goal. I've been blessed to find someone that is already in shape, but takes joy of living vicariously through me and working towards my goal. Without him, I probably wouldn't have done what I've done.

You have to leave your ego at the door, get help if you need help, and push every day. It sucks. It really sucks. But the 6 - 12 months of suck is nothing compared to the years of health and happiness you'll have when you get to where you want to be. The only person holding you back is yourself. Once I quickly realized that, it was still difficult, but not AS difficult.

hah! Glad I could help. Every day is 1 less day of pain.

A mutual friend of ours said he has an elk hunt waiting for me if I lost 75 pounds...I think he needs to extend that invitation to you too!

I just got to get him to remember that conversation...

Thank you for sharing your testimony, it is inspiring for all of us, even for those of us who exercise regularly, it will not cost me as much to get up every morning to go to train thanks to you.

Keep it up, you are an example to follow.

Well done! Color me impressed. I started exercising June 1, been doing it every day, almost a habit now. Kettlebell, couple dumbells, weighted cinder blocks and a concrete house piling I pick up and carry around. (farmers walk or weighted carry) Pants are a bit looser but my heart is my issue, gotta get it right. Aim Small :-)
