Great Awesome job on your 75 pound loss. You are on a roll, hmm bad choice of words, you are on track and accelerating!!! Keep up the good work. You are now inspiring me!!!
Let's see who beats the get below 300 for you mark and 200 for me mark first okay. Just a little fun challenge that is all. Nothing serious. Just keep doing what you are doing and we'll see who gets there first. I think you will!!!!
I got this off STEVO50's Spark page and I thought you'd like it. I did.

I put that quote up on my status because obesity is the thing that matters here on Sparkpeople. Obesity is a life and death issue and that's why I will not be silent about it.
So here's the bottom line...four simple questions. We're all in one or more of the following categories.
#1...Why are you obese?
#2...Why were you obese?
#3...Why are you having a hard time losing weight?
#4...Why can't you keep it off when you lose it?
Okay, I think that covers everybody here in one way or another.
I'll be the first to answer. The two questions that apply to me are #2 and #4.
My answer is the same for both and this is it...BECAUSE I LOVE TO EAT! Plain and simple. Especially when I'm bored and especially junk food. No deep dark reason. It's just a bad habit. That's all it is. I've finally discovered it and admitted it. Now I can fix it. I just have to eat the right kinds of foods, for the rest of my life. I'll have to eat them more than the bad foods.
I know what the good foods are and I know what the bad foods are. I have to create new good habits to overcome the bad habits. It takes 21 days to accomplish this. I have my plan and I'm going to fight like the dickens to stick to it. If I don't do this with all my being, I will become a burden to my family, friends, and society and then I will die.
That's not going to happen to me my folks. This all stops now! I choose to live! I'm going to fight this with everything I have! “Want to be decisive? Start by deciding to live. Getting dead is mandatory, living is a conscious choice.”
I was looking for that 50lb thing - thanks! How are you feeling? I have been praying for you all. I'm sure it has been extremely stressful. Some times we all wish the Light that guides our path shone a little further down the path instead of just a Lamp unto our feet. But, as you have noted, the Lord knows the beginning from the end.
