    Yeah! Thank you so much for sharing your story. It really helps me to hear that you lost 1.5lbs per week. Sometimes when I hear about people losing these huge amounts of weight in short amount of time, I feel like I am not working hard enough or doing something wrong. Over and over again I see on MFP that the people that lose weight over a longer period of time through lifestyle change, something sustainable, that they are the most successful over time.

    Wow - phenomenal transformation. Probably the best I've ever seen. Not just physically but mentally. That takes a lot of willpower! Way to go!!

    I do have some excess skin, but losing it slowly, drinking plenty of water and exfoliating it 3 times a week helped.
    2 years ago (I was still losing of course) my fat apron was almost to my knees. But now (having lost more weight) it is above my pubic area. Arms show it some, as well as inner thighs. dftyvl92zw4c.jpg

    Thank you. I knew when I woke up that this was how it was going to be. I always had the will, I just refused to give it power.

    Thank you. Now, with the help of a trainer, I am focused on adding muscle. I had to up my intake so as to not lose any more weight or muscle.
