Hey. Tim – congrats again on the motivation. As you are aware, I was almost exactly where you are a year ago… and if I can do it, you can too!

I will be watching! 🙂

I dig man… I was 230 almost exactly one year ago (January 30 last year). I am down to 194 as we speak. So… It can (and will) be done. I watched the video.. I really wish I had done that at the beginning. I kind of tripped and fell into my plan. I just didn’t want to feel like crap any more. One thing led to another and I ran a marathon. How about that?

Anyhow, get that “athlete” back, he’s in there. You’re officially added to the feed. Good luck. It only gets easier… truly.

You said you have an athlete in there. What sports did you used to play? I was a soccer and basketball guy.

Man thanks everyone for the encouragement!

Andrew : I am glad I am sexy in your eyes
Abimars & Tim W: Just in reading your blogs the past few days, you have inspired me.
Holly Jo: Hopefully while I run, the stuff that use to hinder me will fall to the side, just like Forest!
Eric: Thanks man. In high school, I played Football, Basketball, and Baseball. At a local Junior college I was on the tennis team, and I enjoy indoor soccer as well.

Yeah.. I forgot. I played a bunch of tennis in college (nothing organized, just for fun). Good luck man.

I admire your tenacity. Several weeks ago I stopped drinking soda. Started cutting back on food and making a fruit smoothie for a meal instead of heading to Foster’s for a burger. I’m like the guys your talking to…overweight. In my recovery work last year, I hoped to cut weight, run, eat better…bottom line I failed. My goal is not as grand as yours, but your on going story continues to inspire me. You go man! My prayers are with you.

Hey, cool. I’m about the same size as you and doing the exact same thing. I’ve just started training for a marathon next May. Good luck and keep up the good work!!
