    Congrats on your loss, and sympathy for the other losses. You completely nailed for me something I have been feeling, and haven't been able to put into words: "Even if you really love yourself and love the way you look, you might miss your old coping mechanisms of binging." I do miss that coping mechanism. But I've been doing my best to substitute exercise for it, and it does help. And you are completely rocking that outfit in the last pic!

    Rock that Black Leather, Sister!

    I could totally relate to your post. Travelling at 367 was a nightmare. It's much easier now - although I have a way to go before I can rock the black leather dress.

    I have to say, I don't feel like a traitor... I feel like I am finding the person that I always was, inside.

    My condolences on your pup.

    Congratulations on your amazing weight loss! I'm really sorry for your other losses. There's a lot of truth and honesty in your story - but it sounds like your huge achievement has been overshadowed with sadness. I hope you can enjoy your weight loss and find greater happiness in all the other areas of your life too. You deserve it and you look great! Best wishes.... I have my fingers crossed for you x

    2. Travelling won't be as hard but it will still suck. Your skin won't be as tight and you will be aware of it when you put on a swimsuit. You might decide to say "screw it" and wear the swimsuit anyway.

    Loose skin is the story of success, dont hate or hide your success.
    Say positive things about yourself every day. I promise you, you will connect, love and respect the new "you"

    I can't imagine coming home and finding your dog had passed away. Totally makes me tear up. It must have been a very hard time. Thank you for sharing a part of your journey.
