I'm down 21 lbs since I joined a gym two months ago. Started working out with a personal trainer once a week a month ago. I'm by no means in this to compete with anyone. The guys in the weightlifting thread (I'd say general fitness, but it seems to be a little more specific than general) don't really get excited over weight loss victories...lol.
It's never too late to become the person you were meant to be.
