Wow! What a story! I am a working, married mother of two who is attending graduate school and I kept telling myself I didn't have time. But your story shows me that if I want it, it can be done! Thank you so much for sharing and CONGRATULATIONS on all your hard work! I hope one day I can be where you are at and be happy in my own skin....

When you were at your biggest how many calories did you eat? and how long did you work out? I hear so many different views on how much you should eat and I need a straight answer. You look amazing and you seem to feel amazing too! I want some of that! lol
