Wow Thud! You've accomplished so much. You may not want to consider this success, and of course it's always a work in progress,
but from my perspective you've succeeded, so Wow!

Thud - I knew you could cook, but I didn't realize that you were such a good waiter. Let me give you a tip... Stick with it. Being a waiter suites you. Awesome job, dude. You can keep the change.

Changing what's between the ears is always the most critical change, and in that, you're a success to me.

BTW, the two photos hardly look like the same person. Amazing transformation. You remind me of a lot of Dr Davis' before/after photos that emphasize the change in one's face in terms of reduced inflammation. Fat loss is only one aspect of it.

Wishing you much continued good health.

Waiting+Staying on plan=Patience

I realize you're entering another phase at this time, and you enter with the experience gained from the last two years, which will serve you well. All the best.

That is such an amazing transformation Thud, the before and after.
You must feel so self empowered with what you've accomplished in gaining back your life, and good health.
I would bet that your family is so proud of you!

Thud your pictures and story are simply amazing. I especially like your last sentence about the wheelbarrow. So very true.
I hope you plan on sticking around here. Your encouragement and insight are so valuable.
