Thanks for the encouragement. I still am looking to better myself each day. Lots of things to sort out still. The first being some side fat that just refuses to budge. >.>

I am looking forward to reading more. I am just restarting after years of in and out of LCing. My start weight and height is similar to yours along with my goal weight so it will be inspiring to see.

I have also not posted or been active so feel a bit clumsy here…

Congrats on your success, it is great to see and inspiring.

Great job!

Now the hardest part is ahead of you -- maintaining it. It's one thing to remain gazelle intense for a short period (several months or even a year) to achieve something for which you can see more-or-less continual progress toward the goal. It's quite another to maintain the hare-intensity it takes to keep those results for years and years when your only sign of progress is that things AREN'T changing. Don't let your achievement lull you into a sense that you have won the race and can now let up. For many of us that were obese as children we have a strong disposition to be fat and the weight can come back on with depressing speed. So every day, rejoice in your achievement and recommit yourself to keeping it. For most people, the key is to get physically active -- very active. Also something that is hard to do and maintain for most of us.

As for color and age -- those don't matter here at all (except in the occasional discussion about ways in which race and age can be factors in various things such as disease states and such). We've had young teens here and have many, many non-white folks here. If anything, being a male puts you in the minority on this site (though I don't know by how much and there are still plenty of us guys hanging around here).

Again, congratulations and best wishes for continued success.

You look fantastic and are an inspiration!

I've just started (today) -- I did this oh...10 years ago but went off the plan after I lost weight and slowly gained it back. Way to go!
