  1. Wow. The pictures speak for themselves. Progress indeed. Keep strong. I’ll be weighing myself on Tuesday morning as I’m away until tomorrow eve (and I just use the one good scales for consistency). Got my walk done, and bodyweight upper (situps, triceps between 2 chairs, use my suitcase for shoulders, superman with 2ltrs water) and plank 5×45 secs.. we are in the middle of nowhere so no gym. I’ll pinch some of your power focus visualizations. Mine to date as I do my power walks are more on body shape, living long and healthy with my girls, and how I will feel without the weight. Tomorrow I’ll get my walk done before I leave, but the workout will be when I get back to Ireland. My nutrition travels with me 😉


  2. Nice work Bill! I am confident you will meet or exceeded your goals. I am going to follow behind you and starting tomorrow in your footsteps! 🤠
