I hope this is how I reply to you as I'm not quite sure. Thank you for your kind comments. You sure can do it too. A few years ago I lost 30 pounds for cycling so I could be faster on the bike. I only planned on losing 20 and the other 10 came off due to some stress in my life and it's been heck trying to gain back the 6 that I now have, but really anything is possible if you just put your mind to it. Really!
I often like to read the Hardcore Fitness Maniacs thread and I just wanted to comment that your progress photos are wonderful. You really are inspirational and I wish I could look as good as you although I'm a bit too fat lol. Really congratulations you look fantastic.
