That looks like my before and after except in the opposite direction...
Grats Cupcake! Amazing dedication!

I don't know enough about your injury to advise you there, but I gained a lot of my weight when I got an injury and couldn't run... I got depressed and that was the activity I liked. I finally made the decision that I had to figure out what activities I could do and make progress with the cards I've been dealt, even though I really disliked weight training at the time. That got easier and the weight training ended up helping me strengthen the weaknesses that caused my running injuries anyway. Also, I'd never have this physique from running alone.
Dig deep, brother. You got this.
My biggest problem losing weight are these Ohio winters. It's not that I hate going to the gym, rather it's that I just enjoy the outdoors so much more. I find it easy to look outside on a nice spring day and say to myself "I want to go run/hike/bike". In the winter I look outside at the blowing snow and it's easy to think "Maybe I'll skip the gym today."
I've lost (and maintained) 26 lbs over the last 1 1/2 years. I have lost about 85% of that weight in the warm seasons. This winter I have hibernated like a bear. I'm chomping at the bit for some Spring weather because I'm ready to get back on track. I have another 20 pounds I want to lose and I'm running a sprint Tri in July. I can't wait to get out there.

atctimmy - What does a "nit" taste like? How many calories in one nit?
"I'm chomping at the nit for some Spring weather"
It tastes like a typo. : )

Awesome! In a world of gluttony, it's a great thing to see your discipline pay off.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
I have read your blog its great....Good job on reaching your goal....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
