Things That Change and Things That Do Not

When my doctor told me I was showing early indicators future heart problems I started making changes. I began eating better and exercising and as a result I’m getting healthier and losing weight. Here’s proof:

This is me with my wife in June of 2010:

This is me last night:

As you can see, I’m thinner and I’m raiding the late Dale Evan’s wardrobe for clothes because none of my old stuff fits anymore.

Because all of my old clothes are too big for me I have been updating my wardrobe with things that actually fit so today I went through my closet to remove all of the old stuff so I can donate it to someone who can use it. While I was going through clothes  and boxes I found a card:

This was given to me by my wife Nina about 2 months after we met. Those of you who know us and our story will remember this by the time we had known each other for two months we had already gotten engaged. She gave me this card just before heading home to visit her family. Here’s the inside:

Without a doubt, this is the best thing anyone has ever said to me. All I can add to this is that now that I’m healthier I hope to live long enough to say something half as good as this card.

  3. Way to go, fattie!
    Keep up the good work. You might just inspire me, yet!

  4. Well done, sir. Well done. And kudos to Nina on the card. Ya done good there, too.

    The ever-continuing story of you and Nina always makes me smile. Congrats on getting healthier, and on being madly in love with a wonderful woman who is madly in love with you. :)

  8. Can you bottle Nina’s amazingness and just make world peace already?

    And good on you, I know how hard initial weightloss/healthy living can be. I’ve never thought you looked bad at all but you look pretty slammin’ today Will. And by slammin’ I mean very healthy and happy and yeah you’re adorable! ;-)

  9. You look good, and also very, very young.

  10. 1. Oh my god that is the sweetest love letter ever; Nina rules!
    2. Since my mother was obsessed with people having perfect posture, I am too, and you have it. Look at you sitting up so straight with your shoulders back!
    3. When all my brother’s heart problems exploded he was in LA, so if you need any cardio recs, let me know and I’d be happy to ask for you.

    Just when I was about to skip my workout and drink wine instead, you go and freakin’ inspire me.

    P.S. You look fantabulous! :)
