A setback is only a setup for a comeback.

I lost 112.50 lbs. to reach my goal about 6 years ago and have maintained ever since. Believe me, maintaining a weight loss is much tougher than losing it in the first place! I have lost & gained & lost and gained & lost over 100 lbs. several times.

This time is different. I am no longer going to give up even when I have a gain or two. I will stick to this journey for the rest of my life! There is just no other choice - giving up is just NOT AN OPTION!!!
