Default Nice to know you inspire people..

Since starting on my weight loss journey January of 2010 I have lost 84lbs. I am in the best shape of my life and I couldn't be happier. But the thing that I love the most is how I have inspired other people to think about changing their lives as well. I have not done any fad diets or taken any fad pills. I did the good old watch what you eat and exercise. Just today I had someone who I never talk to at work come up to me and say I inspire her to lose weight. If you can do it I know I can she said. She asked for my advice and I was glad to give the advice. I think definitely helping other people will help me keep the weight off. I know some of you on this board have inspired people as well and congratulations to all of you.

Fantastic achievement Patti, and the best way to accomplish it, no fads no pills, just sensible eating and exercise. And changing your mindset, which for me, was probably the biggest thing. Well done to you, you should be very proud :0
