Wow. I checked my page today and found heaps of new comments from people. Thanks to all! It is awesome to think that I'm inspiring others. When I started I would look for people whose tickers were half way or more along, read their page, and find motivation there. I never really thought I'd be in that position myself, but it seems that some are finding strength themselves in seeing my progress. If I have helped anyone at all, I'm glad for you!
To all you who don't like having photos of your 'fat' self - take a photo now! You can hide it away, you don't have to share it, but isn't it really impressive to look back on the progress made? I can tell you, if I didn't have my before photos, I don't know whether I'd have come this far! Take your photos and then hide them. Bring out again when you've made heaps of progress.
They say success breeds success. I saw other people's success and thought "Well maybe I can do it do". I'm showing success and breeding that same thought in other people's minds. Eventually, those people will show success and breed that thought even further in 2008's newbies.
As well as that, having gotten this far makes me really want to keep going! Every single day I feel more and more like I really can get down to that goal weight, because I've done so much already. Success breeds success within me, ongoing.
Gee, I hope I do make it now, after saying that! ;)
