It's official. As of this morning, I have lost 70 pounds. Me, can you imagine? 70 Pounds? I am shocked, amazed and in disbelief. I see it on the scale, I know my jeans are a 16 but I still don't believe it's true. For so many years I dreamed of losing weight. How many nights did I fall asleep saying, "Tomorrow, I will start and stick with a diet. I will get control of my life and live again." How many next mornings ended up in the Mc Donalds drive thru or D and D donuts for breakfast? Sneaking the food, eating it so fast so that no one would notice? But needing it so badly it hurt? And then hurting so badly because I NEEDED it. I know you know what I mean. I hated myself. I didn't want to go out in public and I was so depressed that I stayed in at night and ate myself into a coma. A fat coma. Then, one day, I woke up from that coma. My brother had lost 40 pounds on low carbs, so I said, "What the he** and tried it. After a few weeks of sucess, I found this group, and the rest is history. You answered my questions, supported me through frustrating plateau's and most of all, INSPIRED ME!!!! You are all amazing people and I wish only the best in life for each and every one of you. Together, we are a powerful group of beautiful, bright and sensitive people who make this world a better place to live.

I still have 50 pounds till I make my goal. But I know it will happen. It's not a dream. It's a dream come true. I am looking forward to actually going to the beach with my kids this summer. Me, on the beach! Sand castles, waterfights and laying in the sand, without wearing a really long t-shirt. I sm looking forward to playing baseball with the kids, running in the grass to get the kite in the air and (CAN NOT BELIEVE I AM SAYING THIS) Dating!!!

I have been alone for 6 long years. It's time for me to start my life over again on all levels. And thanks to you, I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So, to all my wonderful, bright, kind, intelligent, dedicated, beautiful (K, Howie, insert the term handsome here), loving, inspiring (DEEP BREATH) fantastic friends, THANK YOU! You have helped make my dreams come true. I pray that everything you have every wished for comes to you 10 fold.

Now, *that* was an amazing post. Thank you so much for sharing that. It's true, the confidence and ENERGY you're feeling really just come through your words. Every time I read one of these posts from someone who is really doing it, it makes me feel like, "Hey, that sounds just like me. Maybe I can really do this, too."

I wish you the best in what must feel absolutely like a new life. Thank you again.
