Default Two Year Anniversary

Hard to believe another year has passed!

This was me in '09, not at my biggest, but close:

This was me last year (one-year anniversary):

Here I am today on the second anniversary of my lifestyle change and re-joining FitDay:

It just goes to show that if "I" can do this than anyone can. Keep up the good fight, everyone and don't ever give up!

Regards,
Michael

Thanks for the kind comments! I hesitate to call this a success story as I've proven more than once that I can lose weight successfully but not keep it off. I figure considering my journey to be a WIP is safer way of looking at it.

Regards,
Michael
