    Dr's Report

    Went to V.A. for once over. Nothing bad goin' on same old aches and pains.

    One bit of good news, though.

    January, 2009 Weight 304 Obviously had to do something.

    Decided to cut down on food and get a little more exercize. The hospital stay in 2009 helped me get down to about 288.

    Today, I was really surprized 267! Slow, but steady is working!!!!!

    Another two years and I should hit my target. What's been great about this method is NO PLATFORMING and I still eat the goodies, just much less of them..

    Over the years, I have tried many things to lose weight, but no success.

    HOPE IT continues to work, even if it takes longer!

    Good luck on the weight loss. I am sure it is tough.

    Great job Bruce. Sure is tough but it's worth it.

    I'm doing the same thing. No eating in between meals, gave up soda and alcohol, cut way down on portion sizes. Not sure how much I've lost because the bathroom scale upstairs just screams in pain every time I stand on it.
    Down 2 pant sizes though
    I actually ate whole wheat bread the other day My wife is still in shock

    That weight loss is really good to hear. I know from experience of some close to me and myself it is hard to do. Keep it up!
