    This is going to be my first post in this thread, and hopefully not my last one!



    There's roughly a year's difference between the two pics with daily short commutes to work and totally car free from day 1. I hope to post another picture in one years time from now being that much closer to my goal.

    Thank you all for helping me and keeping me motivated all this time!

    Grecian formula.... hmmm well it's called X96 and weighs around 20 ton loaded...

    ...and I swear the regular morning driver has it out for me since he gives me a
    good chase from my home all the way to work by tailgating me! lol



    Except for being chased by the airport express bus, I gave up driving last year and have been a happy cycling commuter ever since!

    Thanks guys for everything!

    Hmm. I should beware of Greeks bearing gifts.

    BTW, I now weigh less than I did when I was operated on a year ago.

    Here is a shot from my first 5k race. This was taken in March of 2010 - about 5 months into my journey. At that point, I was down to about 359 pounds. (a loss of 66 pounds)

    Attachment 162869

    And finally, (for now), here are some shots from our century ride this past weekend. About 9 1/2 months of work, and down to 310 pounds. (total loss of 115 pounds since starting mid-October 2009)

    Bumping this since Goldfinch wrote in another thread that she found it hard to believe Sayre Kulp was once over 400 pounds.

    So far so good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9a9rACENO0

    But that was a couple months ago. Down to about 225# at the beginning of March. (I only weigh on the first so I do not obsess about the scale, because I totally would!) I started out at 373# August 15, 2011.

    Photos worth looking at for my change and well as Sayre's staying put. August 2012, a few months after my surgery.



    April 1, 2013.



    I've lost over 30 pounds between the photos.

    Here's a recent composite before and after. Before has us at about 320 (Capt) and 190 (stoker). Current has us at 255 and 104 or so. Actual weightloss has all been in the last 2 years or so.

    You must be about 7ft tall, it doesn't look like you're carrying 337lbs. Good job on the weight loss!

    Thanks for the kind words Steve2k. I'm 6'5'', all my weight is and has always been around my mid section. I've always had a lean legs... Maybe from hauling my upper half around everywhere
