As of this morning I've lost about 38 pounds; my BP is 110 over 65; and my Resting HR is 41. Not a mistype, it's 41. A year ago, before I joined BF, I was obese and could barely walk up stairs or get out of chairs; nowadays I ride my bike like a crazy person, fly effortlessly up stairs, and can keep up with the Grandkids. I haven't felt this good in over ten years, back in those days when I was a gonzo bicyclist. In about 6 months I'll turn 60 and have no chronic disease issues, and am on no medications.
I still have over 25 pounds to lose to get to goal, but I'm very encouraged. I wanted to type a special "Thank You" note to my friends on the forums here. You all have been a great encouragement and inspiration and I hope we will continue our journeys to health together.
I've lost weight through Weight Watchers and Bicycling, with a lot of aerobic walking thrown in on the side; my main encouragement is my wife, who is also getting healthier and losing weight; and BF has been a wonderful support forum. So, "THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!"
