I know it was hard, but you did it the right way. You just I cannot say it too many times, but it is amazing. And I don’t mean just the weight loss but the twinkle in your eye is even brighter.

    I tell you this to your face, but just to make it official like – YOU ROCK! This has been hard and there have been oh, so many times you wanted to quit but you KEEP GOING. And it is totally working. And things you didn’t dare to imagine are starting to be possible, hence the growing glimmer in your eye. I love it. You are inspiring to me, and I thank you for sharing the ups and the downs with all of us.

    Yay Karen!! Good job!! I’ve been loosing weight myself, actually. Before the school year started, I was steadily around 139 lbs. Now I’ve gotten down to 126 lbs. My goal is to be 110, if possible.
