Congratulations on all of your incredible success thus far.
thank you everyone!!
and Robin, you are exactly right. i'm a person with a half a set of abs now (just the top half though, lol!.. i can't believe that "line" I have though - i never had THAT in high school and i thought i was active and fit then!) and no more jiggly bottom! The NIH can take thier BMI charts and toss 'em for all I care - they say i'm obese, but i say obese THIS!
and it's not just the weight, either..
I am HEALTHIER.
my skin is much clearer (i used to have horrible acne)
my hair is longer, stronger and healthier. my fingernails don't break anymore (though i still do bite them
my cholesterol has gone down from a place where my doctors wanted to medicate me (at 22!) to the high-healthy range.
i have TONS of energy (too bad i waste it all at work!)
..overall i just feel awesome almost all of the time, which is a feeling i haven't had in years, even when i was taking off the first 50.
