    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    Nice work. I started a concerted effort myself a couple months back. I'm down just over 20 and feeling great. Would like to drop 15 more.

    Nice job. That's impressive...and really fast.

    I think the next big scientific advancement is coming in the area of will power and motivations. I know that's really broad, so...duh, but more and more research seems to be generally directed this way. It's not like you hadn't tried diet and exercise before, right? What clicked this time? If we can figure that out....wow.

    My wife and brother were my motivation, but ultimately what clicked was something my daughter innocently said to me at Christmas. I had a full beard at the time, which was more salt than pepper, and she simply said "all that's missing is the hat, dad!" (you can guess the inference). I laughed but couldn't shake the feeling my recent weight gain had had an affect on her. So by mid January I had formulated a written plan (this was key for me), and off I went. For me it was a complete change in lifestyle.

    Each reached their own weight loss goals; my wife, via gastric surgery (generously paid for by Fusnik and CJ), and my brother thru his own diet and exercise program.

    Very cool. Have any more to lose? What is your ultimate goal?

    Thanks. You'll be pleased to know that biking is a big part of my current workout.

    I am very pleased. Biking is great way to melt off pounds. Its a real calorie hog if done right and is very easy on the joints.

    Yeah, I'm up for some details on that.

    I have plantar fascia problems the last six months that have really derailed my running despite my best efforts.

    What are you doing for nutrition/diet? I love to work out and be active. I love eating more, though.

    Fortunately the movement away from processed foods was easier than I thought. I found I also crave vegetables much more than before. A lot more eating at home and eating more frequently, just less. I'm doing around 1100 calories a day, max (except for last week on vacation). It's been a challenge, one that I've failed many times before, but I'm resolved at this point to see it through. My younger brother is 10 lbs away from a 130 lb turn around and my older brother of 50 now runs marathons. I guess I'm just trying to keep up with the Joneses.

    1100? I'm at 1700 and it mostly sucks (though I'm getting used to it).

    1100 calories doesn't seem healthy.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Finally hit my goal today: 185 lbs.

    Started this journey 14 months ago at 320.

    52in waist to a 36.
    4XL shirt to XL-L.

    I've never worked so hard at anything in my life (those were not the best two years, btw ).

    Our trip to Disneyworld next week should actually be fun this time. Yay for me :/
