Thanks everyone! Yes, I feel amazing these days, so much more energy and I can't stand to sit at home anymore, I just feel cooped up.

The best part is I'm only a few pounds away from being at the weight I was when I left the Marine Corps 6 years ago. Given I had a little more muscle then but that's not the point!
