A little retrospective......what 5 years can do.
 

From where I started at 581 pounds to last year. You old hands have seen this before, but the new C&A members won't have

That's a well done vid Tom! And truly inspirational! I had to laugh about the song choice though, only because I used it for a fire academy video tribute to my class about two years ago and Youtube disabled the audio to it for copyright reasons. I'm glad they left yours on!

I did put a big blurb in for the artist and linked to his CD for sales in the description of the video as advertisement for him. Maybe that's why, or maybe they looked at the context and decided to let it be. Who knows.

Wow! Incredible Tom.

Man Tom, everytime I see that I get inspired. I'm going through a rough time right now and that video was much needed. As I sit hear and feel bad about life I definately needed to see the part about taking back my life. It definately is in my hands. Thank you so much Tom!!!!!!

Hey, if you need an empathic ear, I'm only a PM away.

Varina Drag 08-28-09 09:11 PM

Very nice work, both on the video and transformation! Also found time to add some education, eh? It's just too bad I'm seeing this so late because I feel like riding now!

Neil_B 08-29-09 08:26 AM

My reaction to seeing that video is to shout

I'M NOT WORTHY! I'M NOT WORTHY!

:)

Seriously, thanks for posting it again.

A great inspiration to everyone. Super job on recaptureing your life.

jdon 08-29-09 02:27 PM

As the Chinese say, "talk doesn't cook rice".

It is an outstanding result for an extraordinary effort. Congratulations.

Redskin8006 08-29-09 03:57 PM

Tom, I love that fade effect between your face and the road. Mixing in the pictures then going back to the road is an awesome way to tell the story about your journey. Totally inspiring!!
