Default Tooting my own horn LOL

Just thought I would throw this out there. I havent felt this good in a long time. I have lost 21 lbs but my waist has gone fron a 38 to a 33, My xl golf shirts fall off and the larges are tight in the chest and arms in a good way.
I ditched my Blood pressure med and have bp of 114 over 74 yahoo...was 140 over 93 befor meds.
My cholestrol has dropped to 154 from 289 total. I am no longer taking any cholestrol med as of last week and will recheck that number in 3 months. I know it is going to be good though.
Hang in there everyone it is worth it for sure

Rock on, justawalker!

Congratulations you other losers! I've just today gone below the obesity classification! That bothered me so-o-o much. Yay me.

Carry on losing,
