I just re-read this. I can't imagine how different my life would be right now if I never found FTS. I was always feeling so bad about myself, feeling like I had so much to loose I was never going to be able to do it nor did I know how to get started. Now 7 months later and 100+ pounds down I feel incredible. I have energy, a smile on my face and the knowledge that no matter how long it takes I will be thin! WOO HOO FTS!! Thanks Dough and Umpa for the encouragement along the way!!

You guys are the best! I love this forum and the people here. Thank you for all your help over the last few months. I still have a lot to loose and am no way near done but at least I'm in the ballpark now. If it wasn't for FTS and you guys there is NO WAY I would have stayed on it this long. Thank you so much!!!

You can do it!  Now you know that it is possible to have the body of your dreams.  You are such an inspiration for me.  I have only lost a little over 20 pounds...but I stay true to the course, by this time next year I hope to be down 120 more pounds.  Starting today I am giving up my diet soda and drinking only water and herbal tea.  We can do this!

Did you do it? Give up your diet soda completely? You are my hero if you did. I still have two a day and would love to just give it up. I really enjoy my morning soda though  :-[

I have been hiding behind this fat for so long I'm not sure what I am.  But I sure am glad to be half way to my goal.

Hello Sherri, first of all I agree with my wife.....sexy is definitely a good word for the new look,  ::) you earned it, by God enjoy it! :) Secondly it's good to see you went back to reflect. I too remember when you first came to our forum with lots of weight to lose and Lot's of determination to lose it. I'm proud of your success and have no doubt you'll reach and maintain your goal weight. As other members come onto the forum we all need to remember they too are starting on their new life's journey. You and many others have become a beacon of hope that they can succeed as well. Of course we know they will if they stick to the FAT TO SKINNY program  ;) You my dear are proof of that!

I have my water right here beside me as I post.  I did it. I gave up diet soda. I noticed the scale went down faster this morning.  I was drinking diet rite, four a day.  I am just so focused and determined to lose all of this fat.  I too have been hiding behind it for years.  I have only been averaging 2 to 3 pounds a week.  Do you have any tips for me.  I have read where you have lost as much as 5 pounds a week.  To lose 100 pounds is a small miracle.  I am so proud of you!
