You are truly remarkable!

I am where you were at the start: intimidated by the gym and lost about fresh foods and cooking, but I hope to take it a step at a time and learn all I can!

Congratulations on your accomplishments and thank you so very much for sharing!

Renaissance - thank you, and

I can't tell you how much 3FC helped me in learning a lot of this stuff. Seriously! It's such a great place with so much information.

I just read your story, and congrats on such an awesome accomplishment! I've been on my slow weight loss journey for a few years now, and this is the year that I have decided to lose the last 30 pounds. I am optimistic, but somewhat impatient, and I'm learning to love the 1 pound that comes off the scale at the end of the week instead of freaking out that it's not at least 2 pounds. Your story is very inspirational! Congrats again!

I liked it when you said I’ve gone from “I don’t care” to “give me a minute to throw on some lipgloss". Shows a lot of self esteem! Congratulations on meeting your goal! And also thank you for all the advice. You are very inspiring. I hope to be like you someday.

Thank you, Emme, Shazia, and Esha. Still strange to be called an inspiration, but if I can do it, so can you! Keep going and on your progress so far!

Amanda: I just read your story after it being on here for over 3 years. Thank you for such an in depth story. It was exactly what I needed today.

I was trying to talk myself out of going to the gym for my intervals on the treadmill. Your story put the pep back in my step!

Thank you for that! Can't wait for my run tonite!!!
