    That is so inspring. It is also neat that you zero-in on these sort of stories, Caslon. For me and most guys on the site, fitness comes so natural. I for one, have never been overweight and could never imagine the obsticales that condition creates.
    I know it's hard though because have seen many people struggle with it. it does make me happy to hear of someone first of all, setting a goal to lose weight, and second, using a loved one as a motivating force to help them achieve that goal.
    What's more, is i'm sure that dad is finding being a smaller size provides a whole other set of perks, which extend far beyond the platonic realm of climbing mountains with daughter.icon_redface.gif
