In the last 14 months, and a day or two, I've lost 122 pounds. And counting. This blog is an attempt to answer the almost daily question: How Did You Do That?

Whoa. A blog? Me?

Well, that was a little scary. I clicked on "create a blog", and then I did it.

So many people have said to me recently, "How did you do that?". What they are referring to is my 116 pound weight loss in the past year. I've considered starting a blog to answer the question: "How did you do that?" I guess, with those few clicks, I've started my blog!

I've become an expert in this experience: I see somebody I've not seen in a few months, their eyes travel from my face down to my hips, then slowly back up again not believing what they assume they've just seen. What they've just seen is me minus 116 pounds. And you know what? It's fantastic!

I love it! Whereas in the past I would avoid family dinners, reunions and so forth, now I look forward to them. I absolutely love getting that "once over slowly" look.

Okay, the blog is started. I hope to keep this thing going. Please pass it on if my story can help anyone. Thanks!
