I'm so excited! I finally broke 300 lbs for the first time in 19 years (and even that was only a few months for a friend's wedding).

It's been almost 25 years since being under 300 lbs was normal, and my lowest adult (post 18) weight was 225 lbs.

I also won "biggest loser" tonight at my TOPS (taking off pounds sensibly).

So it's been an awesome day.

Yeah, my speed is definitely improving. There are a couple reasons, including medication changes and choosing to restrict carbs a little further, but I think the biggest change has been my activity level. It's still sedentary, but it's significantly less slug-like.

HURRAY!

I honestly don't think there's a word exuberant enough to choose that could describe just how happy I am reading this! Just... wow!

Your commitment is inspiring to me on a daily basis.
