    When are we going to see a Friday story on you Tigerlily? You're story just keeps getting better and better

    I'm closer and closer to being free of that prison...... It inspires me to know how far you've come.

    Y'all are so sweet. I've got my x-rays of the "Iron Maiden" as my "before" photo, and I'd like to have as my "after" photo me snowboarding or riding a horse. I'm not quite there yet. I still have more work to do posture-wise and weight-wise, too. I'm still a bit mangled-looking, but I WILL get there; still in some sort of therapy or postural class 6 days a week 3-1/2 years after the accident.

    But I will definitely submit my story to Mark because it was watching videos, with tears streaming down my face, of Primal-inspired movement (MovNat/Methode Naturalle/Parkour) that kept me going.

    Wow! As triumphs go, that definitely trumps my overcoming a stupid personal superstition that as soon as I get rid of my "fat" clothes, I'm going to need them...

    Now I really really want to read your whole story!

    Personal triumphs:

    30lbs lost! Yeah yeah I know, I actually checked the scale.

    Had to punch a hole way further down on my belt again.

    My Sprinting times are much much better.

    I have enough energy to do whatever I want, whenever I want.

    I am eating delicious food and I'm more "regular."

    I threw my asthma inhaler in the garbage. Good riddance!

    I am proving every last one of my doctors are wrong about health every day by living my life happily.

    Acheivement unlocked: be a smug asshole and brag about how everything is awesome now.
