Ali--what great tips and congrats on your achievements! Do you have any good tips for maintaining?? I (and I am sure many of us) are very good at loosing and gaining, but keeping it off is the struggle. I am definitely more committed to living a "thin" life than I have been in the past (that 40th birthday is on the horizon) and it's support like this that is going to make all the difference.
Have a great day.
P.S.--I love the bottom of your post!
