    It's a great story but the hosts annoy me--"and now there's joy in your life!" Well, some of us feel joy at our large size too; we're not all sad and mopey until we lose weight. I don't like to perpetuate the stereotype that losing weight will make you happy. YOU have to be happy. I don't feel any happier than I did 90 pounds ago even though I am more comfortable; as Angela says I'm the same person. That's what always-thin people don't want to/don't know how to believe. - 5/14/2015   7:59:26 PM

    Angela! I loved how you said "I am still the same person" when asked how the weight loss changed your life. So many people who need to loose weight also need to begin to love themselves! You look like you've done both! Way to go! Inspirational all around! - 1/21/2013   5:09:54 PM

    I didn't get to see your story (I am on dial-up and it doesn't do videos very well). I am very impressed with your success and maintenance. 3 years and going. How great!
    I recently lost 140 lbs. and am just starting into maintenance and feeling more vulnerable than ever.

    Congratulations on your success! - 1/10/2013   12:21:35 PM
