My main project this year...has been me.

If I had to sum up 2017...it would be with this image:

I can't believe nobody's responded to you yet.

You did an awe-inspiring thing. Congratulations.

I know how hard that is, because I tried to do it for a good fifteen years before running into any kind of success. I did weight lifting, power walking, swimming, all kinds of stuff, and stayed bear-shaped (pear-shaped). I could push trucks out of ditches or leg press half a ton, but I couldn't lose weight.

When specifically getting rid of the fat itself became a medical necessity (the alternative being diabetes) the supervision of an MD and prescription drugs to control hunger pangs was the only way, for me.

Congratulations on finding a way that worked for you. Life is different when you can buy clothes off the rack, ain't it?

Still getting my head wrapped around it...long been the fattest guy in the room...it's hard to grock that it's not the case anymore...

It's primarily a head game...to a degree I never would have believed.

Once I started really thinking of myself as a former cigarette smoker, it got a lot easier.

That was in 1979, so it might stick this time.
