ohfaithful - don't worry about being half of what I am - focus on being more, better, stronger than YOU are today. You'll get there!

Ilia - thank you.

Danni - thank you, also. Sensible isn't flashy, but it works over time (and you can keep doing it for the long-term).

Texas - Thank you so much. It still, to this day, blows my mind that I can be an inspiration like that to ANYONE. Still, I'm so glad if I can help just one person out there!

Jendiet - it IS hard work, and I did work hard (and work even harder to maintain almost 2 years!). But it's totally, totally worth it.

Thank You so much for posting this. I am so pumped up right now after reading your story. You are truly an inspiration and my new motivation. When I feel I can't do this anymore I will come here and say, "YES I CAN". I have struggled long enough. I weigh around the same as when you started and my final goal is the same. You are beautiful!!!
