I'll be back tomorrow. Sorry, I can't keep my eyes open.

Ah, it's morning now and I'm refreshed. Now I will finish this post:

Andy Evans in the top photo is the person that encouraged me to start this blog. We had lunch back in February, and he asked about what I was doing to lose weight. At that time I was in the yo yo cycle. One week, I'd lose weight. The next, I would gain. So Andy told me about his friend Kevin Barbario, a person trainer. Kevin kindly met with me and discussed his simple recommendations on what I should do. So, here I am, going one day at a time. I feel much better now than I did back in Feb, and the greatest thing is the more I lose, the better I feel.

Andy and Kevin gave me the infrastructure for this thing, but it's the blog readers, followers, and commenters that have kept me on track. When I need you guys the most, ya'll are there to encourage and advise, and like I've mentioned before, and I can't say it enough: Thank You.

Trent McCool in the bottom photo is a friend that I met through Business Network International (BNI). When he found my blog, he made a deal with me. If I lose 300 pounds by April 2010, he'll take me to the Talladega race in April 2010. Also, we'll be going in a limo, and of course, we'll be throwing a keg in the trunk. I can't wait, or I should say: I can't weight.
