    Congrats! 130 lbs happens to be (roughly) my goal: halfway there in the same amount of time it's taken you. Amazing.

    I work a full-time job and 2 part time jobs. I have 5 kids. One of my kids has pretty intense special needs and requires round-the-clock skilled care. We're broke and we live paycheck to paycheck. I have never ever been healthy. I am genetically predisposed to being overweight. I had a horrible childhood. I went through a messy divorce. I'm a food addict.

    Seriously, name just about any excuse and it's my excuse, too.

    But you can decide today to take your life back. Right now you can make the next right choice. You can.

    What you wrote is how I have kept going for the last 9 months: "No excuses."

    You're amazing. Thanks for the reminder that we have a million excuses...but we just have to keep going.

    AMAZING job. Love your "right now" sentiment too. Thats what its all about. Remembering that this week!
  • Wow!! Just wow!! Amazing and so so inspirational! "Right Now" Love it!
  • Kudos to you!!!! My thought exactly, no time like the present to start watching what you eat. Don't worry about what you ate this morning and don't just say "well I need to start on Monday, start the week right" NO start now. We just have to stick with it. Its not a diet its a life change. You look incredible keep it up...

    You look great, and I just love what you wrote!

    Had to do a doubletake on the name... my young adult daughter is an Elizabeth that we call Beth... but when I've lost her in a store for some reason I always yell WIZ!

    Well done you! And for those who say they can't afford to eat "clean" or lots of fresh veg as they are too expensive, read carefully what she says "I live paycheck to paycheck..." Yes, you CAN eat well but you HAVE to plan and stick to it BUT you also have to be able to live with it as a lifestyle change and NOT see it as a short term diet. All you doubters out there, take note...
