    Well done, Eddy--and great write-up in the paper! What do your friends and family think of your newfound fame?

      Awesome magic trick, Eddy! Like the paper said - it's probably your best trick ever. MTA - I just remembered this site I found awhile ago that focuses on weights and bodybuilding. Nice community there and lots of people doing good things. It's called John Stone Fitness. Check it out.

      Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

       

      When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

        Great article! Too bad the after picture seems to have been resized without constraining the proportions; it makes things look a little odd. Great transformation, though!

          my family are very proud. Another good thing is that I will also appearing in the monthly publication of 'runners world'. i will keep you posted. I am off work this week as it is my birthday week, 28 today, so having a little relaxation week, and back to it hardcore next week before xmas.

          "I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

            Eddy, you should be proud.Great job on the loss & a nice article to boot. Free publicity for your magician's gig can't hurt either. As for the photo you yanked, you look great but, you did post a picture of yourself in your tighty-whities on a public forum. Folks weren't being mean, just messin' with you. Take it as compliment, people like you enough around here to josh you. In my family, if we're still being polite to you after a few visits, we don't like you very much. I just rejoined WW's myself. Hope to be as photogenic myself someday . Though, I'm a boxer briefs kind of guy. Big grin

            If ye like the nut, crack it.

                  Wow! runner's world. That's awesome. I wonder if they publish a uk variant or if it's the same as in the states. You should hit up weight watchers. You could be the "subway jared" of England. I can just imagine the commercial: "At work I make things disapear <snippet>. But who knew weight watchers were magicians as well?" Hmm... focus on the idea and not my crappy dialogue... We'll make you a star, kid.</snippet>


                  Now that was a bath...

                      Eddy, No harm intended, just some good-natured ribbing. And you were kind of asking for trouble with that picture. Wink Anyway, congrats on your weight loss. Keep us posted!

                          there's definitely a UK one - although in style its fairly similar to the US one. as are the UK runnersworld forums.
