  • Wow. It is like looking in the mirror!! How wonderfully inspirational. My journey has been up and down like so many of us, but you show us with solid commitment, we can actually reach our goals. Thanks for sharing. - 1/23/2015 7:23:16 PM
  • So proud for you. Your journey sounds much like mine in 2012, minus the kids. Due to a knee injury I have been unable to exercise which led to poor food choices. After putting on almost all of the 107 lbs. I lost, I am beginning my journey again. I know I can do it because I did it before. Just have to learn how to do it better this time. You inspire me. Thanks. - 1/19/2015 9:58:31 AM
  • WOW! As I watched and listened to the video I saw and heard myself WAY too close for comfort. I desire to be able to have a journey that is as successful as yours! I am making an effort.

  • Inspired as I sit here in my weekend costume of exercise pants. Thank you for sharing and congratulations on your success! - 12/20/2014 4:23:24 PM
  • Very helpful. I'm always trying to figure out how I look, and I'm at about the same starting weight as you were. My mother thought I was overweight at 125 lbs, so I've never really had a realistic image of myself. What you see in your head is not necessarily what you see in the mirror. - 12/20/2014 10:45:53 AM

  • Congratulations on building a healthier life for yourself and your children. - 11/21/2014 8:01:18 AM
  • Way to go! Our stories are similar. I have yet to reach my goal weight, but I did use pregnancy as a license to indulge. I know better now. I stopped doing Sparkpeople for a while but just recently felt it was time to take back control (after my weight loss stopped and I began to gain a little despite mostly clean eating and daily workouts). I needed to see what I was eating and just how much... so here I am again. Thanks for sharing and for being an inspiration! Not giving up!! - 11/10/2014 3:43:12 AM

  • I liked your forward thinking and planning. Sometimes that is more than half the battle! Congrats - 10/18/2014 2:01:59 PM
  • Wow! What an inspiration! You look just awesome! Made tears come to my eyes. I see so many young women with children that are very overweight and they don't seem to care. It is wonderful that you became fit and healthy and are teaching your children to do the same! Contragulations! You are Amazing! :) - 10/3/2014 6:57:35 AM
