    Hi Deb!!! You look beautiful!!! That is soooo amazing that you have accomplished your goals. Thankyou for the info on your sample eating for a day...when you first started did you eat that way (1200-1250 cal) or have you adjusted your calories to your wieght (as you got smaller, lessened the calorie intake?)...also, wondered how long you spent exercising a day? That info would be great. You are such an inspiration to me!!!! I want to lose about 140lbs and have given myself til next May to accomplish that goal. I will be checking in with you often for inspiration!!!!! Way to go!!!! Endurance are almost there!

    Your story is truly inspirational. How long did it take you to lose the weight? You look great and I'm sure your life has changed immensely. Thanks for the motivation and I wish you continued success.

    All I can say is W_O_W_Z_E_R_S!!! You look phenomenal. I've got a lot to lose myself, and try to not look at the staggering number of pounds I have left to go, but focus on each 10 pound interval. Read thru your whole page and all of your blog entries. Thanks so much for sharing your joys and struggles with us. One question/plea: would you be willing to post in your blog a sample of your menu for one day, just to see what you eat? I personally would find that interesting. Just a thought! Many blessings on your continued success!!!
