    Talking You have to see this!

    As alot of you know, I left my old job to take a new one only to find on my first day at the new job that most of what they told me to get me to take the job was B.S. It was going to be a bad deal all around and I would have ended up almost living there with all the problems and my family time is way, way too important to me for that.

    So, I skedadeled back to my old job and they accepted me with open arms. And more appreciative I could not be. They treated the 2 days I was gone as vacation days so I lost no time in the job, lost no benefits, no nothing. And, they are all very happy that I am back.

    But, my old company ID was shredded the day I left so I had to get a new one made. Well, when I first started working there, it was October of 2005 and the new photo was taken Monday, October of 2007. You have to see the difference in these pictures, it's hilarious! And by the way, the Oct. 2005 picture is easily the worst photo I have ever had taken of me. Ever.....really. Check it out.

    About 140 total. The first picture I was around 310lbs and now, 160lbs give or take a few pounds depending on the day. Today when I got up I was 162. Yesterday I was 160 even. One day last week I was 158. As long as I don't get above 170 I am pretty happy. I just wish I could actually get my stomach flat. I'm still trying.

    Yeah but, they are getting 140 pounds less employee for the same amount of money.
    At a mere dollar a pound (I think that's fair) you should be making $140 less a week.
    I dunno...if I paid good money for a 10# bag of pistachio nuts & I got it home and weighed it...& the bag only weighed 4# I'd be pretty POed.

    Congrats on being half the man you used to be.

    Now you just have to keep it gone. Dietitians say if you can keep it gone two years you have made the changes permanent and you should be able to keep it off. Keep fighting the good fight.

    I've only had the bike for about 4 or 5 months. Actually I lost all the weight by a combination of diet, weight lifting and for cardio I used a Nordic Track CX938 elliptical machine that I still use when the weather doesn't permit me to ride the bike, like last night.

    Looks like you are winning the battle against your gut Mike
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
