    I just wanted to thank you for being an inspiration and cheerleader for so many. Your success is well deserved and you are more than paying it forward.

    Thank you! That means a lot. I wouldn't be here if it hadn't been for other people inspiring me. I still have a ways to go - but I'm happy to be here!

    Figured I should post a more recent pic than from like... November or something... in any case, my face hasn't changed much but it's okay, I don't mind. I do have loose skin on my jaw and neck still. Oh well. I'll take it! Still holding around 157-159 without much change in muscle mass even though my arms are a trifle more defined.

    Wut?! Are you kidding me? Go back and look at your original before pic again! You look amazing now. Admit it. You look good. ⭐

    WOW...is all I can say! What a journey! Thank you for sharing! And congrats on your weight loss!

    Awww.... thank you JewelLiz and Serrasanna! That means a lot. Yes, I'll definitely keep writing. For myself, and for others. It helped me so much to read about other people's problems and how they overcame them! Another really good blog to read is The Movie Chair's blog - she's no longer updating but the entries are still in the most popular list.

    I'd been promising to post links to my blogs so here are the latest two:

    As of now, orbiting around 154-155, and doing quite well on my time restricted eating. I feel better. Taking in a similar amount of calories but weight loss has gotten out of Stall Mode.

    500 days of logging! ... The biggest goal now is to get rid of the belly! If that were gone I'd be pretty much done with the fat loss side of things.

    Love the kitties and congratulations on 500 days of logging: that's amazing! Good luck with the belly; I sympathise as the rest of me seems fine but that lower belly bulge is still very much a thing. I am trying to work out what a reasonable expectation might look like, and was looking for that thread on bellies with wombs in them for insights about this but I can't find it. I'll have another hunt.

    Here is the thread: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10689837/does-this-uterus-make-my-stomach-look-fat/p1.
