The picture on the left was taken in 1997 about 5 years before I met my dh - he weighed about 240 lbs. When we met he weighed about 180 and he was training for his first marathon. Since then he's lost more weight and is down to 165 or so and competes in ironman races & 24 hour mt bike races. I'm so proud of him! :)
Journaling reads: WHEN I FIRST MET YOU, YOU DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THE DREAM OF BEING AN IRONMAN YET. LOOK HOW FAR YOU'VE COME IN FIVE YEARS BRIAN - IT TRULY IS AMAZING. I HOPE YOU ALWAYS DREAM BIG!
