First, congratulations! What you've accomplished is amazing and inspiring.

And thank you for a very insightful posting about dealing with life post-weight loss. You're right -- I think a lot of us do think that our lives will miraculously change once we've lost the weight. Getting your perspective now gives me something to think about going forward.

Thank you for posting this. Reading it actually brought a tear to my eye. You look amazing and should be so proud of yourself! I am very glad to hear that you have not only lost the weight but grown introspectively. You've given me alot to think about and have given me a bit of a kick in the butt!

You look fantastic! You look a lot like the beautiful actress, Teresa Castillo, on the soap opera, General Hospital, who plays the character of Nurse Sabrina Santiago. http://images.search.yahoo.com/searc...neral+hospital

Wow. You look amazing.

But I have to say it...you were a work of art at 287lbs, so it was always going to end super-awesome!

Congratulations on losing weight.
I want to personally thank you for sharing your struggles. No one really talks about that stuff and it needs to be said.


One for every five pounds lost!
