    Same outfit, about 12lb difference from Nov 2010 to Jan 2012. In between, though, my binge eating and EXTREME sugar addiction disappeared. Much work is being done that is helping to ensure that my loss STICKS. Even better than the thinner upper arms, thighs, glut, trunk. It's hard to be patient, but I'm consoling myself with the reality that I haven't been without cravings in over 15 years, but now I am. The health changes are adding on years and years of healthy life to my time - it's enjoyment of my final years, not just numbers, that I'm investing in. Health!!

    And for kicks, yesterday tried on the 20 year old cheerleading uniform:

                • Thanks, y'all! I knew I kept the uniform for a reason ... thought it would be a fun Halloween costume one day.

                  tcb, that is AWESOME. Y'all look like you unzipped your old bodies and stepped out new, or like a pair of nesting dolls! You look so vibrant in the recent picture, especially your wife! Beautiful!

                  • Maybe I should think about keeping my clothes now, while I'm young and slim, so I can put them on for reunions in 20+ years and gloat about how I've managed to stay healthy =P

                        There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

                        My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

                          You two both look about 10 years younger. Seriously! I'm always amazed at how much weight loss makes people look younger. Congrats to you both on the loss!

                              • Wow TCB, this is my first post on this thread. I've seen people comment about other transformations that the before and after pics look like different people, but your pics are the first where that was true to me. Those two pics look like two totally different couples. And if the Ms. (sorry, don't know if tcb is the mr or the ms) changed her hair color, I honestly would not have believed that it was the same person.

                                Kudos.
