  • Wow, this certainly inspired me, I am happy for you doing this at your young age when your kids will benefit from your example. - 3/11/2016 8:11:22 AM
  • Thank you for sharing that, as I have had a hard time with stress eating lately. I went for my first 3 1/2 mile walk in a month today . Your journey has helped me get up and start to move. Thank you very much and keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to me.

  • Such a great story. Thanks for sharing.

    Funny - your before pictures doesn't look like you are carrying 70 lbs. You look like the average Jane on the sidewalk. I'm about 70 lbs over weight too and I know I do look like I'm carrying it.

    I've been a member of SP for several years. Even though I haven lost any weight I use SP to motivate me to try to do better. I think one day something will click in the things I read and do to try to be healthy and I will finally do what I need to do to LOSE the weight - just as you did!

    Congratulations on your success! - 2/24/2016 9:51:40 AM
  • Thanks so much for sharing your story. This is beautiful and CONGRATS to you in all you have done for better health and fitness. Keep up the great momentum. It is SO Motivating to
    me and I am sure many others. I am half way there, to my goal, but it is a constant daily input of hard work. I am eating whole grains and it has really helped me lose.

The Encouraging Stories....and Exercise Suggestions Really Have Helped....Now I have a New Must do, Wall Pushups and Couch Pushups....I will Make time each day for them, My goal is 1 set of 10 reps. each...4 the first week then increase them into 3 sets of 10, and do My 30 Min. walks. It is a Start and Achievable! Thanks, for Encouraging Me to continue on my Weight Loss Journey! I Have went from 450+ to 302. it is hard to break the 300 mark, I go down to 290 then Back to 302.
