    Thanks for friending me. Please keep in touch with me so i can be motivated by your progress. My next goal is ot get to 235. I am 237-238 from 248. Exercise is difficult for me, as I don't like to do it. I have some phyical limitations too which makes some exercise impossible. I have to modify things so I can do them. Keep up the good work!!!
