Bethbeth - as I've said over and over, 3fc was SO helpful to me, and the big losers here both inspired me and gave me great advice. I only hope I can be half as helpful to people as I go through maintenance. Thanks!

I love your attitude about eating the things you like in satisfying portions!

This morning, I am re-reading some of the goal stories for inspiration.

Thumbs up

THANK YOU so much for sharing your amazing goal story! I have to tell you that you have truly inspired me, Amanda .

Have a beautiful evening,

Denise

p.s. I am extremely interested in finding out if we have a "Community Supported Agriculture farm" in our area. It sounds like a wonderful thing!

Thank you so much for sharing your story! I feel a strong connection to you - we're similar ages, we are the same height and have almost exactly the same highest weight - and I hope to eventually be at the weight you are now.
