Before I begin my monthly deep dive into stats and charts and other general nerdery, I wanted to quickly share a couple more things that I’m celebrating.

…so some sort of celebration is in order, right?
Left: Richard and me in January, 2010. I was 402 pounds. Right: Richard with me weighing well over 100 pounds less.
I don’t really feel like celebrating, though. I don’t know what I’m feeling, to be quite honest, and, to paraphrase a song lyric, I don’t know how I feel about that.
