Herbie's Journal, 12 January 2008

New Picture! I am changing my profile pic to be one that my husband took of me tonight. This is after losing 42 pounds over the past 8 months. As a frame of reference, I'm also including my starting photos. Thanks so much for all your help everyone, I could not have done it without you. :)

I had to get my husband and show him your pictures. He was amazed. I have about the same amount of weight to lose as you did. You have definitely inspired me! Thanks so much for sharing these with us. What a motivation to keep it up.

What a beautiful transformation; not that beauty means thin alone, but you did a great job in getting here.

Thanks for all the support, everyone, it really means a lot to me. When I was starting, I was inspired by other folks posting photos like this and wondered if I'd ever get there. This is a great community and I'm confident that you all can reach your goals. Thanks, buddies!

What a year, Herbie. You've really inspired a lot of people (me included). Just goes to show that some (or most) of life's greatest accomplishments will never (and need never) appear on a c.v. Thanks for the reminder.
