This morning when I went to pick up my packet for the Red Rose Run tomorrow ( a 5 mile race in my city) I ran into a man that I hadn't seen in a while. We were making small talk and talking about running, etc. when he said, "Yeah, you used to be heavy, didn't you". For some people that would not go over well, but it was encouraging to me. :) It's great to know that the change is noticeable.
