Default I met my first goal!

As of today, for the first time in 5 years, I am no longer morbidly obese! Now I am just obese. I need to take progress pics. I only have one pic that I know of of me at my heaviest, 36 pounds ago, so I'll have to scan it. It is buried in a drawer god knows where! In 36 pounds, I have lost 2 sizes and gained a ton of energy!
I wasn't always this overweight, I tore some cartilage in my chest and couldn't move well for about 6 months. I ended up gaining about 65-75 pounds over the course of a year or so while I was battling some depression and the physical challenges. And it's taking me forever to get it off! I am determined to meet each of my goals though, however long it takes! Next goal is 200 pounds or a BMI of 35

Good for you!! I know how you feel- I gained about 40 lbs last year due to some really stressful events, which lead to depression and a vicious cycle. Doesn't it feel good to pull yourself out of it and get better? When a year ago it was maybe the last thing on your mind??
I'm happy for you!!

STARTED OVER from 200lbs on 1/2010 to 180 lbs on 11/2010 to 215lbs on 1/2012

Know that you can do it. It is not a question of willpower. I have none of that. It is a question of willingness. What are you willing to do to reach your goals? No matter what your situation, no matter what your history you can be successful and improve your health and physical fitness. You can never be defeated until you quit.~anon
