I worked really hard at this and now I'm going to say it: I'm done. It's payed off and now I feel so good. Since losing the weight my life has changed for the better in so many ways. I have a better job and I can be proud of who I am.
It's not always been an easy journey and sometimes it's been really difficult, but I wouldn't change it for the world.:)

I wish I could just share with the world how much it has changed my life and made it better. Before I had high blood pressure, and I couldn't use a flight of stairs. Now, I do everything I've ever wanted to.

Congratulations! A Herculean effort!

Currently I'm about where you started, hoping to arrive where you are in the next couple years. Over on another thread, there's a group of us working towards getting past the 300lb barrier (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/300-club/230562-who-wants-get-out-300s-me.html). We'd love to have you drop by to encourage us! And tell us about how you did it all and how you muscled past your obstacles to success.

That you feel better about yourself is great, but the fact that your blood pressure went down is even a better reason to be happy. Get healthy and stay healthy. Congrats! :cp:

Congratulations! I'm only just starting to turn it around myself. I'm not quite as large as you were, and my end goal is only a few pounds past yours, but in a way it's like seeing my own journey already finished. Keep up the good work, and I hope to be joining you in the 180's soon!

I think losing weight, especially A LOT of weight, makes you a stronger person... after all we have learned how to be patient, how to plan, how to set goals, how to help others along the way, and more importantly to love yourself again! Congrats... I too stated out over 300... not there yet... but will be!
