    2 years and 100 lbs lost with pics!!!

    The first three photos is 2 years ago at my sons b-day party. It is date stamped for confirmation and the other is tonight with the same shirt on exactly 100lbs lighter!!! The other photo is a pic of todays ride!!

    100lbs ago I could not walk a mile and my back hurt to go to the grocery store and push the cart around. Today I rode 20 miles and and yesterday I walked 3 miles then rode 8 more. I can not explain how much better I feel and I hope this inspires someone else to make a change in there life!

    Congrats on your BIG accomplishment.

    It won't be long, and you will have to remove the BIG from your moniker!

    Next up, will be permanent banishment from the Clydesdale side of the forum.....

    You should be proud!
