Default Food addict drops 70 lbs.

I can't believe I finally made it to goal! I hope I can keep it off but I don't for one second believe that things will get any easier. However, I can honestly tell you that even with all of my imperfections (from years of expanding my skin again and agin through yo-yoing), I'm thrilled now with my body. I know there are some things I don't feel comfortable wearing, but now I know I can find things that flatter me well.

I'm going to try to continue losing some more because my goal jeans are still too snug but they do fit now!

I don't believe I could have gotten here without this wonderful site. There are so many thoughtful, kind people here who know what it takes and have a ton of information.

I will count calories for the rest of my life, but I may eventually try to give myself a day off here and there to see if I can handle it. I will weigh myself every day because that will help me stay aware...since it's so easy to ignore the fact that weight is coming back on. When life stressors occur, I will do my best not to use food to numb my feelings.

I'm so excited!!!!!! I really can't believe I made it! I wish you all great success in reaching your own goals!

Thanks everyone! I"d love to show you a photo, but I don't know how! I'm horrible at technology and it's a miracle that I can even have a ticker here with an avatar! I'm the least tech minded person you've ever met online. I'll ask my hubby to help me tonight. Problem is that I don't know if I can find a before shot since I avoided the camera like the plague!

Congratulations!! That is sooo Great you met your goal!

I like that you have a plan for the future. I once lost a lot of weight and then once I hit my goal I didn't have a plan so what happened?! Of course I gained ALL of it back. Sad but true. So this go round I have a plan too. It is really hard to accept that we have to count calories every day of our lives but to stay healthy it is a must. And I agree totally with regularly scheduled weigh-ins. When i started gaining weight I avoided the scale, in fact I threw it away. D'oh!

I am so happy for you and I wish you the best of luck keeping life balanced. =)
