Default CNN "ireports"

So I decided to fish for compliments and post on CNN. You can see my "ireports" thing in the weight loss success stories.

Check out the first person's comment...I found it funny .

Height: 6'2
Starting weight/ Current low weight/"redline" weight
Total: 267.6 pounds.

I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2.

Haha, what a weirdo. His comment about your hair and face doesn't even make sense. You look great!

Very cool! That first comment was interesting. Not the usual slant one sees on comment sections of weight related topics... And you look great, so don't listen to him.

That is a great report, Matt! And you look fabulous.

I think there are people out there who have to say something negative about everything they see. Doesn't matter what you post they are going to argue with it.
I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

You know what they say about opinions...

I agree - it is so off-base that's comical. I am glad you see that. You look great, hun!

I love that you posted there at CNN. I wanted to say 'what the heck is that first guy talking about?'

Kudos to you!

okay, there's totally something wrong with that first poster I think we can all agree on that.

I think we can also pretty much agree that you have done an OUTSTANDING job! I pretty much know that your life has taken a complete one - eighty from what it used to be. I'm just so happy for you.

I think your report is awesome. I agree that the first comment was funny and I am glad you see it that way. I do hope you totally disregarded what was said. You were a cutie before, you are gorgeous now and don't you let anyone make you think otherwise. As for the facial hair, my DH is jealous. He has passed by my computer and seen your avatar pic and commented. He's only allowed a mustache right now since he's still active duty military.

I quit smoking on Oct. 20, 2008 Now I right and more.
