So here I am!

This journey started on January 5th, 2009, at a starting weight of 264.4 pounds.

I totally lost track of you. I do hope you are happy in your
marriage. Nice to see young folks still get married.

Marriage is not easy, too easy to give up, but Don't
Ever Give Up. Fight for each other. Expect the not
so perfect areas in each of you. Love each other
above all else.
