I have been married for 7 years, and we would like to have a baby, but I am extremely overweight. I am hoping that this site will keep me motivated.
I have lost 200 lbs and a lot has changed since weighing in at 430 lbs.

1. Lots more energy, don't get tired as fast.

2. More room between the steering wheel in my car, and I no longer need to wear a seatbelt extention.

3. Jeans that I used to couldn't even button are now getting too big and baggy.

4. Blouses are no longer a 4x, I am now a 2x.

5. I get compliments from people I see daily, asking how much weight I have lost.

6. I no longer feel like I am being stared at, I am starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin.

7. I don't have to worry about fitting in the booths at restaurants.

8. I can walk or jog(intervals) for 3 or 4 miles and before I could barely finish 1 mile.

9. I am finding ways to get more steps in my day(parking farther away at the grocery store) Before I would drive all over the parking lot for a space in the front.
10. I am reading the nutrition labels on everything I buy at the grocery store, before I would just grab anything.
