01-21-2009, 08:21 PM
Congrats! AWESOME job!

01-21-2009, 08:23 PM
I lost the weight between Dec. 2006 to Dec. 2007. Exactly one year on the day. I have kept it off since then. I swing between about 175-185. My more important little tip is to never give up. In running the 40 mile and 50 mile ultra marathon, I learned that a person is capable of so much more than what they had ever imagined. I learned that one foot in front of the other will take you to the finish line for sure in whatever journey you are on. Walking2lose, you would know about that. One step at a time gets you to 30 mins. , 1 mile, 5 mile, etc. Same with the weight loss. You fall, you get up, you keep on keeping on. You finally get there. THanks

wow, what a big difference. even in your personality. you just look different in the after photos. you look alive. congrats on the weight loss. the life change. the completion of ultra marathons... didnt even know they had those.


01-23-2009, 02:00 PM
Wow! You look like someone whose never been fat :) It will be our little secret. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's something to be really proud of. Do you have any advice for the rest of us?

01-23-2009, 02:08 PM
Well Hellllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo GORGEOUS!!!!! Your wife has got herself some eye candy now doesn't she!! (whistling) Yummy!

01-23-2009, 03:50 PM
Thanks alot for your very wonderful words. Thank God my wife liked me before, now the eye candy is so much more meaningfull, it is like she got married to a new guy. HAHA My only advice is to never stop. The ultra marathons really taught me that even though things are really tuff and might hurt, you can still keep going. So that is it, maybe it is to simple, not sure, but just to get up after a binge or a fall and keep on keeping on.

Thanks again guys

01-23-2009, 04:27 PM
What an amazing transformation ...you're a role model and you just inspired me :D Thanks for sharing your story & pics :)

Well THANKS A LOT Pal! I just dropped another spot on the cutest guy at 3FC ladder :mad:

:) AWESOME! just AWESOME!! :cp:

01-23-2009, 10:49 PM
O my gush! You look amazing!!

All of the threads in the "goal" section are terrific, but for some reason, your story is such an inspiration to me.

Once I reach my goal, I plan to run the Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa (88km). I really do see my journey having the same ending as yours - but I am still at the before stages, though.

Again, thank you for posting.

Oh, and by the way, I will look twice if you pass me on the street - you are one handsome guy. ;)

01-24-2009, 01:19 AM
Sorry about bumping your spot man :)

Snoozle, What an awesome goal, to run the comrades. THat race has such a tradition of excellence when it comes to people helping people finish. The togetherness there I have heard is tremendous. I would love to run it one day too. If you have not watched the videos on youtube about this ultra, you should. You will cry your eyes out, well, I did anyway. Very short videos, but powerfully movie.

Thanks for all of your support guys. I appreciate it

01-24-2009, 05:22 AM
wow! what a change! it's incredible! and your a total hottie now if I do say so myself..LOL

edited note**** whoops Didn't notice you were married before! I'm married myself and my hubby is goign through the weight loss jouney with me! I'm so excited to see your results and know my hubby will have an amazing transformation too!

your wife is very lucky! you were a cutie even before you lost weight but now your a 10!

01-24-2009, 07:43 AM
congratulations!! :)

01-24-2009, 08:57 AM

THanks a lot. No problem. It is nice to know that I look good now. My wife tells me the same thing and that means a lot. You just wait until your hottie is transformed. It's gonna be great. Anyway, it is nice to hear because although I have lost all the weight I still have the "fat mind" on the inside and it takes over at times and then I think I look fat.

01-24-2009, 10:31 AM

Thanks a lot. That feels good to hear. I appreciate it.

01-24-2009, 10:50 AM
Sorry about bumping your spot man :)

No problem kid....at my age that isn't the only thing that's dropped ;)

and besides...I am 10 behind you in marathons...and I "walked" the one I did.

Keep up the fight!

01-24-2009, 10:54 AM
whoa! that's a very noticable change. congrats on all your hard work :)

01-24-2009, 11:58 AM

01-24-2009, 12:50 PM

01-26-2009, 05:34 PM
Just special for you beerab. It took me one year. I have kept it off now for a little over one year. Thanks everyone for your encouragement.

01-26-2009, 06:28 PM

Wow. You don't even look like the same person.
Its amazing! Your an inspiration. :]

01-26-2009, 09:05 PM
You truly are an inspiration! I lost 100 Lbs and am struggling now to get the last 40 off. I fell off the wagon, so to speak, and gained 16 of those 100 Lbs back. The new year brought me new inspiration and have since lost 13 of those 16 Lbs. That might have been a little confusing but I just wanted to say CONGRATS on not only taking it off but maintaining it. I too have started jogging, not marathons, but on and off for my 4 km walk. I know it isnt much but compared to where I was at 2 years ago it is a great accomplishment. Anyways, enough about me, you look great! CONGRATS, CONGRATS and CONGRATS!

01-27-2009, 02:29 PM
Great job Buns. Jogging, walking, running, cycling, whatever it is that we all choose to do, just getting out there is the important thing. Thanks for your encouragement

02-02-2009, 03:37 AM
wow i agree, u look hot hot hot. hey i'm married as well but that doesn't mean i cant enjoy a little eye candy does it?

02-03-2009, 03:30 PM
Thanks DanielleAshley. I appreciate the complimentary words. They go a long way. Especially today, Not such a good day today, but your words lifted my spirits. Thanks a million.

02-08-2009, 03:48 PM
Looking great, looks like you are feeling great. ROck ON

02-16-2009, 06:37 PM
Wow, you are GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! Your wife is one lucky lady but I am sure she knows that!

You look so fit and healthy, full of life! Discovering a love of exercise has been possibly the most positive thing that has happened in my life - it has changed me so much and in so many ways, mentally as well as physically.

I know it can be hard to change your mindset when you have been obese - but just keep reminding yourself that you are now a normal weight and enjoy your success!!! You deserve it.

And it kind of looks like you have found yourself an army of fans right here ;)

02-16-2009, 10:47 PM
Ok Let me join these ladies fighting over you. ;) You look amazing, like someone else said, the picture of health. I know what you mean that we are capable of much more than we realize... that is what I have learned as well, and continue to learn. Thanks so much for sharing your inspiring pics!

02-17-2009, 11:45 AM
Really great job!Congrats!u look so handsome,fit,healty......

02-19-2009, 05:42 PM
You look great! Major congratulations!

Question for you - During your year of weight loss was running the main exercise you did? Did you encounter any physical problems due to the running?

I ask because I enjoy running for weight loss but wonder if I should be mixing up my cardio (I also weight train) and also because I'd like to extend my distance faster but find if I push for too far too soon I have knee aches.

Again, congrats! What an amazing accomplishment!

02-20-2009, 09:52 AM
You are looking so great and healthy in that last picture. You look so happy in both your after pictures! Really inspiring. Great job!

Exactly what I was going to say; that last pic is just the greatest. You should have that blown up to poster size :) Big, big congrats!:carrot:

02-20-2009, 10:09 AM
Way to go, fantastic!!!!!

02-20-2009, 01:19 PM

Wow, you look so cute lol! Congratulations!

02-20-2009, 05:41 PM
Nice Job Brother Man!!!!:bravo:

02-20-2009, 07:11 PM
:congrat: You are truly an inspiration!!

I have lost 51lbs since 8/08 and now I am stuck on a plateau. Did you ever hit plateaus? If so, what did you do to get it moving again? I have tried increasing strength training and shifting calories a little. I now know that this is a life( in every sense of the word) journey and will continue. Having said that, I am getting frustrated that I stopped losing at 6 mths and haven't gone off plan. I even made it through all of the holidays so far without going off plan. (something I have never done before)

Any advice would be great! Again: YOU ARE AN INSPIRATION!!

Thanks for sharing!!!

Wow!! I have been sat here rendered speechless for about ten minutes!! You have done amazingly well, and I am so impressed, and inspired!!!

I am at the very start of my journey and have set myself a 100lbs to lose (which depending on how I feel closer the time I may increase by another 13lbs) and although I feel a little overwhelmed at all the effort that is needed and whether I have the ability to get there..... stories like yours are such an encouragement, and show me that anything is possible when we keep working at it...

You look so happy in your after photos. I hope to feel as happy as you look one day!! :)

Congratulations!! x

I need to show my boyfriend these photos. I know he would love to see some other men who have lost the weight. We're both in the process of getting healthy again and he definitely needs some motivators and support!

It always impresses me to see people who used to be very large become more fit than the majority of most healthy people. Congratulations and keep it up!!!

Great job! You look fantastic! I can't even imagine being able to run at this point. When during your weight loss journey were you able to start running?
