It has taken me nearly 2 years to fight back from that internalized negativity and PTSD. I have been at my new job for 3 months now and I finally feel like I have a solid floor on which I can begin to rebuild and get back on the path to the person I know I can be.

Hi, I just saw you on my phone and read your article and loved it, so I had to add you. I lost 70# back in 2011 when I joined and went on to gain almost all back. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi!

I'm just starting back too. Never thought I'd be back at this high a weight, but I'm going to try my best to meet my goal. Here's to never giving up!
