Just watched your video! What a great way to start the day.
Incredible transformation!!
:congrat: :bravo: :congrat:

I love how you said you are better for what you've gone through. That's one thing I've always seen as a positive about being on the heavy side. It's made me more sensitive and empathetic to others, and the different trials and tribulations we all go through.

Congrats again on GOAL!!!! :carrot:

Baker: Congratulations on your success. You are beautiful! What program did you follow? :carrot:

Dcapulet: How did you reach your mini goals? What program are you on?

I just began counting calories and making sure sugar and carbs are reasonable. I want to lose 90 pounds.

Thank you ;)

OMG...Thank you so much guys :) My day has seriously been made...ok more like my year :hug:

That's one thing I've always seen as a positive about being on the heavy side. It's made me more sensitive and empathetic to others, and the different trials and tribulations we all go through

I agree 100%. It makes me wonder who we would actually be if we did not gain in the first place. Its easy to say, I would still be sympathetic towards any and most situations but in all honestly, I just don't know. I hope that I would still be the same person...but I know I'd most likely wouldn't be

What program did you follow?

No program. For a majority of my weightloss I did portion control, but never counted calories. And I developed hobbies that kept me outside =D..The last 20 pounds I lost, I did calorie counting though :) Good luck with losing 90 pounds. I cannot wait to see your ending post now =D

Meditation is the best way for both physical and mental health

I completely agree :)...Most of us have underlying issues as to why we got overweight in the first place, and before we can be successful at losing and maintaining, we need to figure out what that is, and how to fix it

WOW!! The thing I love most about your journey, is it wasn't so much, "I MUST LOSE WEIGHT", as it was, I'll make some small changes, like avoiding fried foods and I'll go LIVE my life. You didn't let your weight keep you from doing things and I think that's just awesome!

I'm six ft. tall myself, and watching this video was very uplifting. I was made fun of alot when I was younger because of my weight as well. Our height doesn't help us look any thinner in photos with our small friends, eh? Haha.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for the encouraging video. If you can do it, I feel I can, too! :)

CONGRATS!!! Baker, I see you are taller like myself (6'1"). In the comments on your video you said that being tall was difficult or some such thing. I don't understand that. I've heard more and more tall women say similar things but I don't understand why. Why do you find being tall a bad thing? I love it, and until lately it never occurred to me that it might be viewed as a bad thing rather than a blessing?
