Thank you for sharing your story with us! It is soooo encouraging. I still have 221 lbs to go, and have read your interview twice, gleaning ideas and inspiration from it.

I especially appreciated you saying " I think it is the mental process of behavior change that is the "secret" to long term weight loss."

I recently heard someone say "it's all mental"...the battle is won or lost between our ears.

Thank you for the positive effect you have had "between my ears" !

Thanks everyone for the super nice comments. I really apprecate them. If I can every help anyone - please let me know. I really believe in "paying in forward" and a lot of people have helped me along the way.

Here is an updated picture of my dad, mom, Katy (daughter) and me. I am at 318 pounds lost now and still going.

I just read the article on you from the link in your sig. It was awesome and awe-inspiring. I had goosebumps, literally. I think what you have done and what you are doing to help others is so awesome. What really hit home for me was the part about having no willpower, but having the willingness to do what you need to do to get healthy. You are truly an inspiration. You seem very friendly and down to earth and that will be really important in helping others. I just cant say enough about how impressed I am and how your story has touched me. Thank you so much for sharing it. And thank you for doing it, not just for your own reasons, but so that other people may know they can, too. Awesome.
