        Nova - What an achievement - Herculean even! Wow! Are you both runners?

        Go as long as you can, and then take another step.

                    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
