It's almost unimaginable how you have managed to drop so much weight in such a relatively short period of time. Jim, you A-M-A-Z-E me! Your success so far highlights the amount of dedication you have given to improving your life and health. Way to go!

Change only happens when the pain of holding on is greater than the fear of letting go.

That is an amazing transformation - it's only been 8 months since your surgery!

I love the side-by-sides too - it's such an inspiration and I confess to feeling like a clucky hen when I see pictures like that.

I'm proud of you Jim!
