Most people who joined when you did (about 10,000) have long since quit, so what you accomplished is amazing. I know you will set new goals for this year and you reach them!
We have 59 days until 2010, so remember this is a difficult time with all the food and celebration, and we have to be careful to NOT have regrets on January 1st, when others will just be making resolutions! 2489 days ago

You are in an incredibly powerful position to change the world. I hope you are still pursuing medicine because as a doctor who has suffered obesity (and overcome it) you will give hope to innumerable people. Can you imagine how many people don't listen to their doctors because they think that skinny MD has no knowledge of what they are going through? For years and years and years, I refused to weigh in my doctor's office. If I had had a doctor who had once been obese, I would have reached out for help instead of spending all that energy avoiding the scale! Good luck, my friend. I know you can do it! 2722 days ago
