wow... thats good I'm glad I did that. I've been stalled for a few months. And even if I don't ever lose another pound I will never never never give up. I will never never never go back.
You always look amazing.It is always nice to see your pictures.We have just about the same body type and its a big push for me when i see your pics. Your drive to stay focused and on your diet is a huge inspiration for me.KUTGW!

Everyone looks amazing.It makes me sad that i gained all the weight back.I need to kick this sugar addiction

Hi OzDancer…
Thanks for the note...

My goal is really to be physically able to enjoy retirement with my lovely wife of 40 years and be able to go places and not just sit on the boat while everyone else goes ashore.

Side benefits - I won't have to buy 2 seats on the plane for me either!

But you are right, weight loss could stop now and I'd be happy. We are having the time of our lives and retirement is still 3 years, 7 months, 22 days away (but who is counting).

Eating low carb has been very good to me!

Dorian, er, Larry, you forgot to mention that you keep a painting in your attic of a dude that just...keeps...looking...older...

And you too, Cynthia -- you are looking svelte! We have the same basic body shape, I feel like I'm looking at a cousin in both pictures.

Soon2b, not only is that picture an amazing contrast to your "before", but also with the other fairly recent "during" picture that you replaced!

Brandnewme, big changes, especially in the definition of your face and around your middle.

And ChubbyNurse (whaddaya gonna do with that username now that you're all trim, huh?) -- you look nowhere near 185 in that "during" pic. Clearly lots of muscle tone.
