                    I'm new here, but thought I'd share what led me here.  The before picture is me on Jan. 7, 2012 at 258lbs.  The after is me on Jan. 3 at 155lbs.  I still have about 10lbs more to go.  I've been using running and strength training as my exercise of choice.  I've done a couple of 5Ks and I'm working toward a half marathon for this April.  You'll see me around the forums looking for encouragement and advice.

                      Just so I get this straight...you lost 103lbs in just under a year?

                       

                      I'm speechless....  Shocked
