Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the very kind posts. A friend of mine took the photos and did a side by side.

I wish everyone the very best! If I can ever help anyone - I would be happy to do so. I really believe in paying it forward and a lot of people have helped me along the way. People in the forum - with their stories, ideas and just motivation.

Simply amazing! Wow. You look very handsome. Did you ever get discouraged? How did you keep yourself motivated through the whole process? Did you ever wonder if it could even be done?

I think everyone has said it all! I bet it feels so good to finally see that light at the end of the tunnel. 18 pounds should feel like a drop in the bucket compared to what you've already done.
