Default Your story

Amanda,
I am sure you have heard this 100+ times, (and more) but what an inspiration you are! I feel lost at the beginning, but so determined and committed to the long term- what is a year really- I have lost 8 years now being overweight. I will hit my goal weight by 40 yrs old, that is 16 months away!

My LT goal- 160
ST Goal- 250
Mini goal- under 300 lbs (10 lbs to go)

I will read your story often to help keep me on track! Thank you

Kellost - thank you!

MsShiraz - you can definitely do this! Just stick to your plan and keep going. Can't wait to get to know you better!

Nicolle - soon enough, you'll be one of those people who has done this and moved onto the (no less challenging, but still awesome) world of weight maintenance.

Presence - you ABOLUTELY can! Get going! You're on your way!

That really is an amazing and inspiring story! Thank you so much for sharing, I think it's helped me realize what a difference losing the excess weight makes. I feel much more motivated to commit myself entirely to my plan. Thank you!
