over on People dot com they have pictures of people who've lost about 1/2 their body weight, talk about inspirational!!! THere was a woman who was about my size when I started and she looks amazing -- they all look like they don't have 1 ounce of excess skin lol i guess that's why they're on a magazine duh :) Still fun to look at !!

You're right! Thanks for the inspiration :D

Look at those people... all skinny and striking a pose... Soon that'll be us tho! Maybe not in a magazine, but we could be in one if we wanted to, for sure ;D

Each year, People publishes an issue that features people who have lost a LOT of weight. I always buy it because it's so inspirational to read their stories and see the transformations!

Oooh, I didn't realize it was out now! I buy this every year too, simply for the inspiration.

I saw three of the people on the Today Show (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/34651744#34629938). They are very inspirational. While you are on the Today show site, check out the latest member of the Joy Fit club (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/34651744#34609728) who lost 156 pounds. I look forward to their Joy Fit club segments. They have been very helpful and inspirational for me.

I looked for the magazine at the grocery store today and didn't see it yet. Hopefully it'll be out soon.

I also looked for it today and didn't find it. I've bought it in the past and have saved them. I LOVE reading that issue. Hmmm, I wonder why. ;)

I bought it yesterday. Unlike previous years, the "half my size" article is not the cover story! It has a Jonas brother getting married on the front.

Okay, then I DID see it. Drats.

Why'd they go and change it??? I would think that that's one of their best selling issues. In fact it's the only issue I've pretty much ever bought. Jonas Brothers? They're cute and all, but really. Real people losing 1/2 their body weight in a healthy manner - now THAT'S worth reading.

Thanks for letting us know that! I would have totally missed the issue because I always look for the pictures of the "losers" on the front.

Wouldn't it be great if they did a story about people who have lost a lot of weight -- and kept it off? For a year, three years, five years, a decade or more? I'd really like to read that one!

Ahh, now you're talking!! I've become so immune to the fact that losing weight and keeping it off is no biggie, since I am so familiar with the successful long term losers here at 3FC (ahem Meg..). But really besides here, we just don't hear that much about it. It WOULD be kinda cool to hear about it. If only.
