Thanks for sharing that. Is it in the print magazine too, or just online? I get that magazine, but haven't seen the article.

My husband is just starting to "get on board." With trying to lose weight. It had to be all his own idea w/o an iota of "nagging" from me. So I'd love to leave the mag in his bathroom LOL to read the stories!

I looked at the article online. That is so cool. I think these success stories are so important because they show that weight loss, even loosing large amounts of weight, is possible.

Thanks for sharing!!
