sometimes I feel vain updating this thread but I just remember all those years ago it was here that I would come to see what might be.

 

Sunday, October 25, 2009 I ran a marathon (26.2 miles) in 4:12 which is a 9:36 m/mile pace. On April 1, 2007 I weighed about 340 lbs down 20 from my all time high of 360 lbs.

Great job, you look incredible! Do not feel vain for updating us, vanity is self-serving and you are not serving yourself, but inspiring others! There is a big difference...

Current weight. 295.4

1st mini goal. 285

2nd mini goal. 275

Padre - you look amazing but more importantly you are incredibly fit! You should feel proud (and a bit vain) for being able to complete that marathon in excellent time.

 

Plus, you're a bit of a hottie :bcb_wink3

Dude you are my role model. I'm hoping to run a half next year, and maybe a full depending on how the half goes.

Great time!! I'm not sure if you're into biking and swimming too, but have you ever thought about doing a triathlon?

All right a little more attention whoring on my part. You just read about people that did weight watchers and wonder if they kept it off. I'm at about 3.5 years now since I started "the program" and while I'm not an avid points counter weight watchers taught me to be mindful of points and how I was eating which I use at every meal today. I've kept it off!

 

Here's my latest pic of me in a 1 mile race. My time was 5:45. You can see that there's some extra skin around the belly but I'd rather than that all the extra weight I was carrying around.

Holy smokes! I am BLOWN away! Wow. Seriously. Very good job!! What an incredible inspiration you are. I am 25, and I always think to myself...if I'm not a runner by now, I'll never become one. It's just too late. But I see you...and I see what you've become..

Nick - I remember you from years ago when you still had a long way to go - and here you are at the finish line. You should be so proud of yourself - you have done fantastic! And not vain - you deserve to be a little vain - you look fantastic!! And you're teaching your kids how to be healthy and fit. A great role model, which is a huge bonus! Congratulations - keep updating!
