Congrats on your weight loss and continual way to inspire the rest of us to stay healthy in the right way. I am on Cortef right now and I am walking as much as, I can, when I can due to weather, and how my back is feeling. I have two rods in my back so, it can be a pain at times. I have faith in your goal being met also. Keep up the good work.

Msann, Great Job! Congratulations on your weight loss!! My highest weight was 240, I'm down to 194 and controlling my blood glucose with low carbs (50g a day) and exercise. Keep up the great work, your story is so encouraging. I'm believing with you that you WILL be under 200 this summer!

That is great! Keep up the good spirits, and you will hit that goal! I also had that virus almost 3 weeks. I finally feel ok to start working out again also.
Good Luck!

Congrats on your weight loss. Keep up the good work. I have lost 40 lbs. probably in the last 1.5 to 2 years. It's my New Year's Resolution to continue losing weight and my goal is to lose 1 lb. a week. I figure if I lose the weight slowly, there is more of a chance of me keeping the weight off.
Again congrats on your weight loss and keep up the good work, and you're sure to reach reach your goal of UNDER 200 by this Summer. I'll say a prayer that do!

Awesome job getting back up on the horse so to speak, after having the flu. I have found it is sometimes difficult to get started again after a break. Congrats on the weight loss, you must be feeling it in the loose clothes. Keep up the good work. Best in health, Heidi

You can do it MsAnn. I Went from 242 (my scale not the doctor's) to 175 (my scale) and am still trying to trim own to 154. Fortunately, my numbers are looking much better, but that said I am taking oral medications. Everyday you just keep swapping things out and watching those yummy carbs. I'm with you girl!

Keep up the great work. It's hard to do after being sick. Kudos to you for getting right back in the routine.

That's great. Sorry you've been sick. That's a nice goal, I've dropped 13 lbs slowly.
Wednesday, my father fell and has a massive blood clot on the left side of the brain. I will be graciously helping with his care and hope to get some exercise. I've taken a leave from work. Hope I don't gain back!

Good job, msann. I commend you for the weight loss and restarting after being ill. I'm sure that you can lose the weight but more important is your health. The better you feel, the easier it will be to lose the weight.

I hope you are able to reach your summer goal but even if you don't, you're making great progress through all your efforts and that is the most important thing. It looks like you have a good start on making 2015 a great year!

Way to go, girl! You are an inspiration. I have to lose about 50 pounds, and I have not been serious enough in my efforts to do so. I'm really going to try harder.
