First: as of today I have been one solid year on Zero Carb. I have been strong and had Zero Cheats. Hey I am human and while some things looked good, smelled good, brought back carb infested memories of momentary pleasures .......... I stood my ground and resisted the temptations. I hope you don't mind that I am proud of myself. For me this is a big, big, big accomplishment.
I fought hard for every second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year that I have held the line. Yes my Friends and Zero Carb Family. I have been here. I have been here standing guard. I have kept my shield up and my spear pointed towards the enemy. I did not falter in my duties. I did not let one of those bastards through the line. I was locked in Mortal Combat everyday and though there were times that I questioned my Resolve, I wondered if I had the Will or the Strength to carry on. I simply refused to go down. I found that ounce of Strength. That glimmer of Hope. Yes my Friends and Zero Carb Family, those were the things that made me Rise to the occasion and rally the the Will and Courage to "Stay in the Fight" and "Battle On". This is my Last Stand, yes I have said it over and over again. While many if not most of you are able to recover and start again if you should fall. I am not so sure of myself. I want to think that I could, but at last ......... that may not be a reality for me. I don't know and I sure as hell don't want to find out. So instead I muster all that I have inside and move forward. When pushed I push back harder. When tempted I use counter measures. When all seems lost, I find a way to win the day. I have too. I do not have a choice. I want to live a long and healthy life and this is the path that I plan to stay on forever.
Hey I heard a rumor that this bozo promised some update slash compare and contrast pictures. Well lets just see if we can do something about that.

Second: I have been at or below my last Mini Goal weight and I am comfortable to "Cross the Goal". Yes my Friends and Zero Carb Family. That last Mini Goal is now officially HISTORY ... Gone ... Never to be seen again ....... Kicked to the curb ...... OUTTA-HERE ... SCRAM ............
So now I will set another Mini Goal of 169 lbs. Wishful thinking? I dunno. I originally thought 185 lbs would be a prime weight for me. Now??? Who knows? I don't. Oh yeah ......... I guess Zero Carb may have an inside track on that. YES INDEED!!!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I tried my best to simulate the "In Progress" pictures as close as possible to the "Before" pictures. Yes, I did call them "In-progress" because: "It ain't over until it's over". Guess what? IT AIN'T OVER ....... No not by a long shot. How low can you go? Do you really want to know? Yes, please!
What will another Year on Zero Carb bring me? Joy, Peace, Well Being, Great Health .............. I know, yes I will sum it up and say that it will bring me:
"Take me High, Take Me low, Take Me Where I want to Go .......... You Can't take my Joy form me, since I found Serenity."
Have a great (ZC) day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep the Faith and Always Battle On!!!
(ZC)er Can You Hear Me NOW
