I would like to convey my extreme gratitude to this program for helping me do what I was never able to do before. In June 2006 I started my journey at 270 lbs. In March 2007 I reached my personal goal of 158 lbs. At 5′ 9″ I am very happy at this weight. As of today (October 27, 2008) I have maintained this weight by following common sense eating habits and exercising. Yes I am tempted but I have created a basic mantra for myself; “Nothing tastes as good as looking this good feels”. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
