I've been on this journey for almost a year now. It's been pretty tough, but not any tougher than hiding inside myself.

I started out at about a size 32/34 at 409lbs, now I'm a size 26 at 249lbs. WOOT! YEAH! I can buy clothes at the walmart!

I just want to say to people out there who are trying, and feel like it's hopeless, it's not. Go outside, even if at night, and walk a mile around your house! Or pace in the living room! Anything to keep moving, if you don't stop you'll get there eventually. Sometimes you will hit a brick wall, but just keep on going. That wall can't stay up forever. And you don't need surgery, or a fancy plan! If it comes in brightly colored packaging, don't eat it. If it's saltier than you are after walking, don't eat it. Love you all, I'm going to bed. Sorry if this was a ramble :) KEEP MOVING!

Wow, look at the difference in your measurements AND your pictures! Want to know what I noticed right off? In the first 2 pictures, part of your face is blacked out so we can't see your expression. But in the last picture, you are smiling, happy, and confident.

Congratulations on your amazing accomplishment. You will serve as an inspiration to many, many people who come here looking for hope!
