Congratulations! You look amazing! Reading your story gave me some needed inspiration, I was feeling sort of lost on my journey.

Encelia - happy to do whatever I can, even though it's so strange to be considered an inspiration.

Thanks, myweightlosstrip! We have similar stats, so you definitely can do it...just keep on track and even if you lose weight slower than you'd expect (our bodies aren't machines!), you'll get there eventually if you keep going.

Default Wow!

What an amazing journey! You would think that with just 25 lbs to lose I could just get right to it and get rid of it...but, I just can't seem to get started. Every day I say this is the day and I will get on track and every day I lose sight of the goal. Your story is very inspiring!

Wow, I'm just gonna chime in here among the dozens and dozens of people who have commented already that your story is not only inspirational it's very well written. I admire your honesty, and some days just reading that this is not something that I -or anyone- is truly alone in experiencing is really wonderful.

I too have found that belonging to a CSA has been invaluable.. who knew how many delicious foods were out there I'd never tried.

I add my thanks to the din.

I can't thank you enough for posting your detailed story of how you got from "here to there". I find that I keep coming back to it every couple of weeks just to read it again. Every now and again I get a little down and think "This can't be done. My goal is too far away. It's too hard. I can't do it." But then I revisit your story and it helps me find my resolve and reminds me this CAN be done. It takes time and effort but it CAN be done. Thank you so much for sharing. You've helped me more than you know.

Luv2clog - it starts with a solid commitment...you WILL get this done! Make the commitment and then jump in and hold yourself to it. Over time, it gets easier, and soon, you're headed toward your goal!

It was really amazing. Even more amazing is that I keep eating those new, tasty foods, even when I don't have to, and I've turned into a total farmers market junkie.

Vontrese - aw, thank you!

ALH - you CAN do it. You can look at it as a big project, and get overwhelmed, or you can decide what small changes you are going to make today, and tomorrow, and onward. Those small changes add up, and soon you're on your way to goal. It doesn't have to be overwhelming and scary if you take it one tiny bit at a time.
