    Sorry to compare you to a celebrity but in the picture in white you remind me of Jessica Alba :smile:
    Thanks for sharing your story. I can't begin to image the patience and skills you've learnt to cope in order to drop 126 lbs!
    Let us know when you reach Onederland (should be quite soon! :smiley: )

    Your story really resonated with me. Good job on changing your life!!! I've gone from 300lbs to 180lbs. I also always identified as the big girl. I'm glad to hear that i'm not the only one struggling with buying new clothing. My current wardrobe is too tight or a little too loose. It's frustrating! I was wearing lots of dresses, as they seem to fit the best, but i'm Canadian and it's winter now. Brrrr! Good luck with the rest of the weight :)

    Awesome, awesome, awesome! You are truly beautiful, but more importantly, I can tell from your words you are beautiful on the inside too. You never know why God let's us go through things that are tough, I think sometimes it's so you can help others and have the experience to do so because you lived through it too. Best of luck in your continued success!

    When I changed my lifestyle habits, I couldn't eat my feelings anymore. That was hard. It was really hard. I felt things that I couldn't even quite identify at first- they had been smothered for so long in cheese cake and pizza and endless buffets of Chinese food. It hurt. I had to learn new coping skills to deal with my emotions. I had to learn skills I should have learned growing up, but I hadn't, for one reason or another.

    THIS. All of this. I am working on this right now and it is so very hard.

    Inspirational post - really. Kudos to you on an amazing last year.

    Nice story! :) I agree, it starts in the head before it starts physically. We're about the same age and same weight right now. I've lost a bunch too but been struggling lately. I come back to read the stories too. :) Keep it up! I've got about the same amount I'd like to lose as well, we've got this!
