First, congratulations! What you've accomplished is amazing and inspiring.

And thank you for a very insightful posting about dealing with life post-weight loss. You're right -- I think a lot of us do think that our lives will miraculously change once we've lost the weight. Getting your perspective now gives me something to think about going forward.

Thank you for posting this. Reading it actually brought a tear to my eye. You look amazing and should be so proud of yourself! I am very glad to hear that you have not only lost the weight but grown introspectively. You've given me alot to think about and have given me a bit of a kick in the butt! :)

You look fantastic! You look a lot like the beautiful actress, Teresa Castillo, on the soap opera, General Hospital, who plays the character of Nurse Sabrina Santiago. :) http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?_adv_prop=image&fr=my-myy-s&va=sabrina+on+general+hospital

Wow. You look amazing.

But I have to say it...you were a work of art at 287lbs, so it was always going to end super-awesome!

Thanks everyone :)

I think we all have different stories and lives. 2 people can lose the same amount of weight but have 2 totally different experiences and stories. Most before after stories are really positive and optimistic, and they should be, but I think there is a side to it that people don't talk about a lot. I think it's the reason why so many people gain the weight back. They lose weight and even change their lifestyle, but they never address the psychological and emotional issues which caused the weight gain in the first place. It's so amazing how weight loss is both so simple yet so complicated at the same time.

Yes, it is, I'm just starting to realize this for myself and trying to work through it. Congrats on your amazing achievement!:carrot:
