I've been wanting to make a video like this since before I even lost the weight! I hope to inspire at least one person with this :)


ETA: I've been getting swamped with e-mails and Spark messages from people asking questions about my weight loss. I'm happy to answer new questions, but please check out the FAQ's on my blog before asking. Thanks! http://www.runsforcookies.com/

    Love the video! I have been looking for inspiration since I started gaining weight back and found none. Your video has changed that. It made me remember documenting my weight loss with pictures and being so happy and proud. I have to get back to that!

    I'm inspired by you. I hope you stay thin. It's harder to keep it off than to lose it. I've been down that path a few times.

  I feel very inspired after watching this, so much so that I had to send it to my mother who also struggles with her weight. I know it motivated me, I am hoping it does the same for her.

    You are so beautiful and all those other adjectives you listed. I want to lose the same amount of weight in the same amount of time, also using 10 lbs. markers. What an inspiration you are. Yeah, I'd say you motivated at least one person! emoticon

  I loved your video blog it's so wonderful to see. You remind me a lot of myself through my journey as well. I too met Dr. Oz and he is so sweet.
I too did the same picture of me on the swings doing the same thing after my weight loss as well !! It's such a good feeling , the freedom.
Just like you said with your words in the video . You hit it dead on !!
GREAT JOB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!! Celebrate each day with full life and smile..
You did it and you look so cute and happy. Congrats to your victories

  There is only one word to use for you "Amazing" You are going to be my inspiration. I also want to lose 130 lbs. I just started this week if you can give some tips/pointers that can help me I would appreciate it. I know it will be hard but now I know it can be done. Not that I am near there but what did you do regarding loose skin. If you don't mind me asking. If this is something you don't wish to answer I understand. I have been reading a lot on line regarding diets. Maybe reading to much. Hope to hear from you, again you look terrific. Hope to follow in your footsteps. Thank you for your blog.

    Thank you for posting your journey. I know body types are all different but I have to ask did you loose the weight w/o drugs. Many of my friends are going on b-12 shots. I am about the only one loosing weight the lod fashion way.......so please tell me that it is possible to loose 125 lbs with out drugs. emoticon
