  1. Thanks Trish! I used to workout a lot and was fit as can be but then started experiencing health issues. The health issues along with inactivity contributed to my significant weight gain. There was still some muscles under all that weight I was carrying. I was fortunate to gain some muscle back while losing weight.
  2. Thank you! I workout 6 days a week using high repetitions with light weights.
  3. I bought this 2XL jersey in 2010 and had barely enough room to get into it so put it on the rack in closet and forgot about it. Flash forward to 2015 and picture on your left, I tried it on again and had to squeeze in it. Once again, I put back on the rack and forgot about it. I was going through my closet looking for something and came across this jersey once again. I tried it on and to my amazement, this jersey feels like I'm wearing a dress (I have never ever worn a dress before, lol!) as I now wear medium shirts. I'm 2.5 years out, I'm loving my life and journey!
  4. I'm sticking with my gym routine religiously. The days I don't make it to the gym, it feels like I missed out on something. I will check in with you all on occasion.
  5. Hey BB! My wife didn't notice the fruits of my labor in the gym until she took the pic of me in the tank top. She said, where did you buy those guns from? Lol! I hope all is well with you.
  6. Thank you. Once I got the okay from my cardiologist, I knew I was going to be a gym rat. I feel really great. My twin grandsons are in NYC and I only been able to get there once to visit. Even though it's not the same, I get to face time with them at least 3 times a week.
  7. Hey Trish! You're looking right slender there! I think about you often as well. I feel great! Since I was medically cleared for weight training, I've been living in the gym. I have 4 grandsons including the twins. I will get some pics of them for you to see. I've settled in pretty well with my home. It's been almost a year since I moved in. As for my MIL, this year is a little tough because the holidays, birthday and special occasions has been without her for the first time. My wife has been handling things better as time moves along. I remember you were going to have surgery on both your knees. How are you doing with that?
  8. Happy belated birthday to you! Geminis rock! I'm enjoying my new home, I can't believe it's been almost a year since I moved in. Time has moved so fast.
