    My Friend, what a great job! You look fantastic and I know you must feel on the top of the world. Have you thought about how you are going to level out and maintain? Does it scare you? I have lost in excess of 100 Lbs. a couple of times and I always fear the return to the old habits. You have a lot of support here, you will always have somewhere to turn should you need it. Once again, "Congratulations, you did great!"

    I don't' see me ever stopping using MFP. I think I am able to keep my weight in check without it perhaps but it would be silly to not check in from time to time. I'll probably weigh monthly and see how it goes. I might just make mental notes on my daily calories. I'm not entirely sure yet. Thank you though!

    What an absolute phenomenal job! I have lost close to 50lbs in the last 5 months, which is wonderful - but I have to say when I look at the big picture of how much I have to lose (total of 160 lbs) it just seems so daunting, and I worry. How do you push past those feelings? I know this is a long road, and I understand that - but it still is so overwhelming to think about.

    You just take it one mini goal at a time. Getting into those jeans or that t shirt. Getting under this weight or reaching that amount lost. It's a little like a game. Look at the next bridge you are crossing not the one 3 miles down the road and it won't seem so bad. Good luck!

    Hahaha I've been experimenting. Now on light brown/ash blond which I think I'm going to settle on. Thank you!

    Yay for Gingers! We are awesome! ^.^

    Congrats! You have worked very hard for this!

    You said this was your original goal. Do you have different goals now? Are you going to continue at maintenance or do you plan to lose more or build muscle?

    I've decided I want to go down to 12 stone (so an additional stone).

    After that is surgery for the excess skin and muscle building.

    Congratulations. Well Done. Thank you for saying that you are here for life because it is so easy to become complacent and put the weight back on again. Wonderful achievement
