Exercise is my medicine now!

When I first started on SparkPeople back in April, I thought to myself, this is going to be hard! Well it has been. The last 6 months have been incredibly challenging and I have been through a lot. I weighed 300 pounds when I first started out with my weight-loss journey. And today, I weighed in at 198 pounds! I have lost 102 pounds, and it took about 7 months to lose it. I almost can't believe it. I was baffled when I looked down at a number that was out of the 200's.

I have been waiting for this for a long time. I started out in a very tight XXXL size 26, but today I put on a size 14! I am still in shock! Thank you so much SparkPeople. I can't say enough positive things about this site. Trust me; if I can lose weight, ANYONE CAN with this site. I used to be addicted to chocolate and fast food, but not anymore! The other great thing is that I am off all my depression meds! Exercise is my "medicine" now.
