      That getting in shape is a progression that can take months or even years is a very difficult thing to overcome.

      My parents said I could be anything when I grew up, so I decided to be Awesome!


      Mmmmm...beer

        You've done a great job Jimmy!  Looking forward to your next update.

         

        I think that's the hard thing for most people, they want to get there, they just can't see it actually happening.  There is no easy fix, no overnight success.  It's kind of like running, if you want to see results, you have to think long term and stick with it. Smile

                    Wow, Jimmy!  Nice work!  But I gotta ask, are you really tall?  I have a friend who's about 6'0, 215, and he looks bigger than you do even in your heaviest shot.  I would never have guessed 250!

                            Yes, really smart to document so you can see (and share) the results.  You should be proud.

                              Well done, man!  That's great.  =)
