    Woo hoo! I got a quick mention in your video blog (about the length of your run time being movie-length). Haha =)

    You look great, Gregg. And I don't mean just in terms of looking like you're in great shape which, of course, you are. I mean you just look happy and comfortable in your own skin and that's great to see, particularly knowing how hard you worked both mentally and physically to get there.

    You're totally right that saying "no" ends up being beyond worth it. And it's amazing how much easier "no" gets the more we practice it. You're awesome and this video was full of lots of amazing Gregg wisdom. In fact, it's motivating me NOT to give myself a day "off" today and I'm going to head on a walk in a few minutes. So thanks for that.

    P.S. My cat HATED the "Please stand by" noise. It was kind of funny =)

    I don't take my own vlogging seriously - I just fire away blasting through what I think I am and end up viewing what I am really like-

    thanks for vlogging, it is a nice change to view you

    You were so spot on with so much of this. People saying losing weight and being healthy is part a lifestyle change, but really it changes everything (or it was for me, at least). I'm almost envious of how quickly you've reached your goal, your confidence in the "new" you, and how you're already running such intense distances...throw some of that dedication and drive over here, please!

    Sidenote: when I go for distance runs, I often mentally replay scenes from my favorite movies. It's like a happy compromise between the active version of me and the couch potato version of me :)

    You.... I am just so darn proud of you and grateful for the opportunity to follow you on your journey. Thank you for all of your words of wisdom and insight and support, as well as the accountability that we're both lacking, haha. You're such an awesome person, Gregg. HUGS!

    Had a rough start....but finally got it going :) Great video blog, and as a writer get how you feel doing video blogs. Jillybean gave herself a rough draft but still find alot to be off the cuff and happy seeing you both accomplish goals you are setting for yourselves.

    I thought the use of "laurels??" was buckwild as well~but a hill billy from the cornfields of the midwest ;) I enjoy hearing how you feel about running....continue the journey my spark friend!

    I enjoyed the video. You are happy at this healthy weight. You have achieved your goal weight. You should be proud of your incredible running at 19k. I had to smile at your movie comment. I thought the same thing. I used to watch movies on the weekends. Now I am walking to earn steps on my tracker.

    That was a very motivating video!

    Love it, Gregg! You're such a great and encouraging role model for people who don't think they have it in them to get through this journey. And I have to say that you seem miles (or kilometers!) ahead of many people who've recently arrived at goal. You look so relaxed, happy and confident that you've figured out how to make this healthy living thing really work for you. May you always retain that spirit in what's your new and permanent normal!
