wow i just realized that i have not been on here in almost a year. shows how important this really was.. and since that time i had actually gained weight back! this year in sept i was in a car accident.. but im kinda glad i was because when i went to the doctor i got on the scale and i was 242 and i was like omg i seriously need to lose weight! and since sept i have lost almost 25lbs slow process but im doing it i am now 222 but of course im bloated but im gna stick with that at the moment and i am more determined than ever to keep this up!!
