    When you first started exercising what did you do and how long? After 10 min I am short of breath :(

    It just so happened that I looked at MFP today (January 9) and came upon your story! I am thinking of you as you run your marathon today! Congratulations, you are an inspiration to all of us!

    That is terrific. By your picture it looks like you did a Disney run. I as well gifted myself a trip to Disney and my first marathon in 2017 after getting in much better shape. I hope you had a great time.

    This is freakin' fantastic! Congratulations!

    Quote of the year, that I hope the new users around here really take to heart:
    "You can still eat whatever you want, just do it in moderation. The fact that I never deprived myself I think was a big factor in getting me to where I am today."

    Good luck on your marathon today!

    Congratulations! I needed to see your post today. I am new, motivated, frustrated, pushing forward. I am huge. 15 pounds are gone. 150 lbs need to go. I wish I could be your friend. I feel a bit lonely here, like a fish out of its element. I wish I would have met you earlier. So wonderful what you have achieved. Thank you for sharing.

    @The_Fat_Optimist So many of us are in that boat, or were! My highest was 293 (and I'm only five foot nothing!) Then I lost fifty pounds...then i gained back forty. Then I lost eighty...then I gained back sixty. Now I've lost thirty, with about another hundred to go. You're not alone!
