First, a very inportant message.  I'm sure you've heard about the tragedy in Haiti.  It is heart breaking.  And we can do somehting about it.  But make sure that it's through a reputable organization.  And you can find a good list here.  You can also text "Haiti" to 90999 to donate $10 to the International Response Fund. The money will go directly to The American Red Cross' relief efforts in Haiti, like I just did.

On to the title of the post, I took another progress picture.  Oh wow, I can really see more progress.  Can you believe that the starting picture was taken less than a year ago?  It just goes to show how much we can do in as little as a year.  We all can do it.  Or something like it.

And also, I was able to do my longest distance in 20 minutes on the treadmill: 2.28 miles!  Think I'll ever be able to get to 2.5 miles in 20 minutes?  That would be awesome!  Not bad for a 248.8 pound guy, huh?

1- 20 minute session on the Treadmill (2.28 miles)
1- 10 minute session on the Stairmaster (318 Calories)
1- 15 minute session on the Elliptical

Wish I could run with you to chase down your time. Soon, very soon. You're looking good but only as one guy would say to another guy.

Good grief Beej - these pictures tell an incredible story. If I only saw the second set and the last set, I think I would still recognize you between the two, but not between the first set and last set. You have really, really done an amazing job.

Amazing! I'm with Steve on this one -- would have a hard time picking you out as the same guy in the first picture and the last picture. Really an incredible change. Good on you Beej!

That's two days in a row you've been a big inspiration to me, Beej! Awesome transformation in the pics - great stuff, and great motivation for folks like me!

Thanks for donating to the Red Cross.

Your pics are incredible! If it wasn't for the tattoo, I wouldn't have recognised you by comparing your earliest and latest pic!

Thanks for donating. This is such a terrible tragedy and I certainly hope everyone who is able to does their part.

LOVE THE PICS! Wow! Super impressive and in less than a year. Crazy! I can't believe the change in your face. Totally different. Great job Beej!!!
