Truly awe inspiring! THANK YOU so much for sharing your story. To know that it is possible and that you and others have achieved these amazing goals is the motivation & inspiration we need and crave here. I am with you & have cut the crap, too!

I too have a question regarding exercise - how much did you exercise when you were above 300? And was it always just walking? I am having some issues motivating this big ol' booty regarding that. I seem to be fine watching the calories & food. I am hoping when I get a bit more weight off I will be more motivated to exercise (right now just 1 time a week on the elliptical & whatever walking I get in doing errands, etc).

I can't wait for the book!!!

Aww thanks everyone! You guys are all too kind I hope that I motivate and inspire. I want everyone to be as happy as I am right now

Excercise: when I was above 300 I walked. As far as I could. As often as I could. Which was NOT very far or very often. Once I got below 300 I started a walking program and I now do 4-6 miles 3 times a week. Plus I run a daycare in my basement so I'm VERY active all day long.
