I remember your article from several months ago. I managed to get even heavier than you were (although I spent more than 11 months getting there) and have dropped sixty-two pounds since April. My doctor couldn't believe it. My cholesterol is the best he's ever seen it and I won't be needing high-blood pressure medication anymore.

It appears that the exercise provides benefits in and of itself but the weight loss is certainly welcome. I run over twenty miles a week now. I may only lose two to three pounds a week instead of five when I first started, but I'm in a regular routine at the gym and time is on my side. I enjoy the exercise for exercise's sake.

I'm glad to hear you're coming out of the terrible funk you were in. Being healthy does tend to change more than your waistline.

Keep us updated. Congratulations on your progress.
