You have really done great Kyles! I agree with what kitchenelf said about perseverance. I know I could have lost a lot more by now if I had stuck to some kind of plan. Keep up the good work!

Those are some great progress pictures!
I also post at www.johnstonefitness.com forums, and if you're interested in finding fitness information from normal people who have made the kind of changes you have I highly recommend checking that site out! The folks are really friendly, and the information is top-notch...I know there are some others that post on these forums and those as well.
Keep up the good work, and don't forget to lift heavy :)!

Agree with Lemonsong. He got me over on these forums by discussing this site in one of his posts over there. I start out my morning by reading John's update for the day. Most of the time they are just a hey what's up but sometimes his words are very motivational when he gets talking about not giving up.

Hi Kyles,

I am soooooo impressed, OMG!!! Way to go x 1000! Perhaps it's just my painfully shy side coming through, but I think you are so "brave" for posting your pics, I am so self conscious (I'll bare my soul and admit it) I doubt I could do it (post pics).

I am totally proud of you girl!!!

Good going! I wish I'd have thought to take pics of myself at my heaviest, but like most fat guys I was pretty much in denial. It's brave of you to post your pics, and it's an inspiration to those of us trying to lose weight and keep it off.

For me, the scary thing was posting my weight. I had been in denial for so long, it was awful owning up to how fat I was, the pictures were a doddle!!!!

I'll post another one soon, as I have lost 15 pounds or so since that pic!!!
