Several people I used to hang around, and am still friends with are very overweight. I was too at one time. So I did post this to FB

wow...this is so amazing. I think I'll put it on my fridge, too. My work cubicle too. My wallet, too. Embroidered on a pillow, too! SO good

I'm choosing to continue to lose weight.

Love this!!! Saved as my background=) I really like the perspective this puts it in. Being over weight is so much harder than being healthy!!! The aches, pains, shortness of breath, low energy.....the list goes on is so much worse!!!

Such a great message. Nothing feels better than taking good care of yourself through diet and exercise.
