Wow!!! Thank you for sharing. It is the motivation I need once again on my own journey. I had lost 100#'s over a 2 year period and it has slowly found most of it's way back to me. I need this inspiration.

Wow. I looked at your pics and you look absolutely amazing! Then I read your story and must let you know that you really are an inspiration to me! You are the same height as me and your starting weight/size are just about identical to mine. Likewise, your goal weight is just about the same as mine...(mine is 165, give or take a pound). So, it is really wonderful to see that you met your goal and look so fabulous and confident. I've already lost 50 pounds and have about 70 more to go and now I know I can do it!!! Thanks for sharing your photos and story!

Kells - you've done it before, so you can do it again! And this time, you'll have the maintainers to back you up when you get to goal...just one of the MANY reasons I love it here so much.

IndyChick - awww, thanks! You're so close...the last bit can be tough, but you'll be there in no time.

Kris10 - you can do this. Trust me. Stick around, read and learn, and you'll take your 50 lb loss (WTG, by the way! ), add even more, and start the whole SECOND journey that is learning how to maintain. It's a wild ride, but so amazing too.

I've been coming to this site for awhile, and i've seen your picture before and been inspired. I just now read some of your story and saw your before and after pictures. How Wonderful! You have been an inspiration before and even more so now. If you can lose and maintain the loss again the odds of a bad knee, I can maintain too! Thanks for sharing your story.
