Tatumas - wow, we DO have similar stats! on your incredible losses so far. You may have to stick it out a bit to get the last pounds off (they're killer!) but you can definitely do it!

Wow I am speechless! Your story is AMAZING AND INSPIRATIONAL =] I feel like my goal is so far away but I seem to be 100% on plan lately and I love to read success stories where someone of a similar size has really "done it." Congrats on the weight loss and for being such a strong woman. YOU ARE AMAZING!

Thank you so much for writing your goal story. It truly is an inspiration. I needed to read this and knowing I can come back here and re-read it anytime I want will mean the world to me. Thank you again.

Congratulations!!! You are an inspiration to me. It must have been a horrible feeling to see the scale creep up to 295. I can only imagine what a good feeling it must have been to go below 200. I know that's when I'll be ecstatic, but one day at a time. Hugs to you.

I too am another one who comes back and rereads people's goal story. They are all just so amazing and keeps me inspired!

Amanda I am in awe of how wise you are and SO young! When I was 25 I was a DOLT compared to you!

I am serious! LOL!

Laura - awww, thanks! Keep going, and you'll get where you're going in no time.

Jada - Onederland IS a really good feeling, a MUCH better feeling than the scary moment of seeing my weight so HIGH. Even scarier was trying on the wedding dress (having to have THOSE photos as my wedding photos...when I was so UNCOMFORTABLE with myself...I can't imagine it). You're on your way, 6 lbs already!

FlatIron - and here I am wishing I'd started SOONER. I'll never be able to re-live high school or college at a normal weight. Still, I've got the rest of my life ahead of me and I'm certainly glad that I figured it out when I did.

I'm flattered and humbled that my story can drive ANYONE forward on this kind of journey.

You know I've been heavy for a long time now (7 or 8 years I think) but I only got REALLY heavy (morbidly obese as opposed to fat) the last 2 or 3 years. I too wish I had started sooner too. I only started having to take BP meds 2 years ago so maybe if I had started earlier I might have been able to avoid the pills as I hate taking them.

But I guess the important thing for me (and you too) is that I am doing it NOW!

Wow, so young and so wise! Honestly it makes me weep because at this stage in my life I feel too tired to do it again but I'm morbidly obese again and desperately need to get it off! I've struggled with my weight all of my life and kept it off for the most part but now I am so ashamed and can't seem to muster the courage to do anything. Looking in the mirror is painful and as someone else said I just don't seem to care anymore. I want to care again, I want to lose the weight again and keep it off. I've gotten off all of the medication that caused the weight gain in the first place and now to lose the weight.

Low carb worked for me in the past but I don't feel well on it so I'm going with counting calories and eating good fats. You are truely an inspiration. I wish I were half the woman that you are...
