    Hey @CoachJen71 I'm so glad you bumped this! Just wanted to let you know that this was the post that inspired me to aim high back when I first started on MFP. I saw your post on 7/18/16 and decided I was going to go for the big goal of losing 100 pounds in a year. As of today I have lost 74 pounds. Thank you again for this post, and congrats on reaching your goals!!!

    Just saw your link to your story in the maintainers check-in. Thank you so much for sharing your story and your pictures. So inspiring and I appreciate your honesty! I can understand the frustration of frequent setbacks due to injuries and other health issues but I love your example of learning and pushing through and figuring out what works for you. (My husband and I have recently started hiking together again, too. I love it!)

    You are absolutely right, you are cute! I had tears in my eyes reading your story. What an absolutely wonderful journey you've had and continue to have, ridding pounds gave you the opportunity to truly enjoy life to it's fullest. You're an inspiration. Oh, and you're too cute. Did I tell you that already? :wink:
