    Thanks for putting yourself out there. I'm a chick, so yep I cried. And you're right, "You're not alone". I have been there, and even though I'm only halfway to my goal, I feel so much better now. Awesome job.

    I read your story and caught myself nodding many times during your tale of going shopping at a plus-size store. I've been a plus size since I was born (10 lbs., 4 oz.). I know all too well the struggles faced being so unhealthy. I am so happy for your success I just had to write and congratulate you! You look amazing and I know you feel so much better too. God bless you in your new life.

    This is so inspirational. Congratulations! As someone who is obese, I can totally relate to your story and it almost made me cry. I can't wait to be free of plus size stores and worrying about the size of seat I'm about to sit in.

    You, sir, are an inspiration...THANK YOU for sharing!!

    I've been lurking around here for weeks, mostly checking out women's stories of success, for inspiration. I've never commented on anything before. I ended up reading your story because I kept ending up here (?) and saw someone commented that you are a hell of a writer. Well you are a hell of a writer (and you should keep doing it) and it brought tears to my eyes. I am so happy for your success and that you continue to inspire people!

    Nearly year and a half later this is still getting bumped and I'm glad I got the chance to read it. Tho I am saddened that you don't appear to be on MFP anymore, I would have loved to have read your blogs. You have a way with words that is amazing. Thanks for sharing your story and inspiration, wherever you are :)
