Default I still exist, and I'm still losing.

I'm down 87 pounds, a year and nine months and change from the day I started. It's been a crazy journey so far, and I can't believe my progress. I'm a size 14, down significantly from tree size 24 Jeans I wore previously. Sometimes, my weight loss had been slow. I've gone months without losing an ounce, and then sometimes I woosh.five pounds in a week. If anybody would have shown me a picture of the happy, vivacious woman I'd become during my journey, I would have laughed. This truly has been the best time of my adult life. Thanks to 3fc for being there for me. I could not have done it without this place. I have to have it to my past self....she made a great call signing up here. I can't always be a good forum member, because right now I don't have a computer and it's hard for me to visit and participate as I'd like. But, in the midst of change, this has been one wonderful constant. I hope everyone else gets a much from this place as I have.

Also, I meant to post this in the mini goals section. I'm not actually at my goal. *facepalm*

Great Job. And yes these are the best years of my adult life too. I'm still mad at myself for wasting so many years of my life. I'm making up for it now (and going broke doing it).

Good luck on continued success.
