Default 11 months and 76 pounds ago...

11 months ago I weighed 223 pounds and stood in front of my closet which didn't contain 1 item of clothing that fit properly - even my shoes were tight. Around this time I was in my car one day when some young guy pulled up next to me and shouted "why don't you learn how to drive you fat slob".

That was it. That was my bottom. It was now or never. He was the messenger. Although I resented his remark deeply, today I would like to thank him. The lesson learned: "Don't shoot the messenger".

I read DANDR, I started walking, I started to visit this board. After loosing a significant amount of weight I decided to take my health and fitness to the next level and joined a gym. It all started RIGHT HERE.

Today my wife and I are happier, healthier, thinner and feel like newlyweds. Maybe LCing saved my life - I don't know. I do know that it made life worth living. I'm in the 5th. grade again and its Saturday morning. Thanks to all. dankar
