It's taken me 3.5 years, a lot of hard work, a lot of frustration, and a lot of soul-searching to lose the 134 lbs that I've lost and I'm still not done. It didn't just drop off as if by magic. At the same time, I don't think it's constructive to pass off my poor choices to an eating disorder or to emotional problems or to my parents not pushing me outside to be active or to whatever else you want to come up with. If I don't take responsibility for how I got fat in the first place, then I have no hope of ever taking it off. The very first step to losing weight is the realization that you have to change. The steps to get there may be different for everyone, but a willingness to change is an absolute requirement.

    And considering the fact that I started out at 311 lbs (a higher weight than any woman who's ever been on TBL), I think my perspective has a little bit of validity.

    Thanks for the clarification!!! I forgot the name of the original host, so I didn't realize how close the two names were!!

    I also wanted to add a BIG CONGRATS to all of those on the board who have been able to drop the pounds through hard work and determination!!
