    you can do it! I started this journey just over 6 months ago and I have lost over 60 lbs and have gone from a tight size 20 to a loose size 14. I never believed I could do this till I saw the inspiration slide show and thought 'wow' they looked just like I do now. I realise loads of people read this board and probably never do anything about it....but stop! i saw the photos of others and made the decision to do something. Please do the same, it really doesn't take that long. Good luck everyone
