    Amanda – just found your blog, and read the last few entries. Please, be kind to yourself. I know exactly what shoes you are walking in, and I how hard it is. While I am old enough to be your mother, my experiences mirror yours, and I want to tell you how proud I am of you for tackling this NOW, and not at 46 – 52 years of age (which has been my last six year journey). I lost 118 lbs, but have stuggled with the last 30 for three, almost four years now. Surround yourself with those who support you (not always those who love you the most!) in your goals, both physically and emotionally. Go for what you want, and don’t settle! I did, and while I have moments of regret, know it is all part of God’s plan for me, but I still need to do my part! Let God carry you at your lowest moments, and remember how strong you are, where you were, and where you are going to be! I look forward to watching your continued progress! You inspire me! Keep it up!!!

    Wow! First of all I just found out you are my age! You look fantastic. You have inspired me to start my weight loss journey. I’m short and 156 pounds. My ultimate goal is 130. You are the reason I get myself out there running and working out and eating healthy. Thank you so much for doing what you are doing! You’re making a HUGE difference in people’s lives. In MY life. Someone called me fat a couple weeks ago. Instead of getting upset and going home and eating my feelings away, I can across your site and decided to say, “I’ll show them.” And began to work out and change my eating habits. But instead of doin it for the ones who have hurt me I am doing this for myself now. I ran my first 5k last weekend and you have helped me so much with self esteem. I have found myself saying, “Amanda would do it!” On the days I don’t feel like working out. So thank you. You’re awesome. You make me happy. My husband an I are both on our way to healthy weight loss! You’re awesome! Thank you!!

    You truly are an inspirational woman.
    I’m 19 and have suffered through years of bullying and self loathing. I made the change recently to love myself and haven’t looked back since. I’m slimmer, more confident and HEALTHIER.
    I’m kinder to myself now because I know that I’m worth it.
    And I have you to thank.
    You’re the reason I made the change and I owe my new found happiness to you!
    Keep going, you’re fabulous!

    you are a true inspiration! I love the fact that you don’t have a set goal weight but to be healthy. I have been attempting to lose weight but been focused on the scale. I’ve notice clothes are getting looser but the scale hasn’t changed much. I have decided to stop with the scale every morning. I decided yesterday with the new year i would weigh myself the first of every month but to not let that be my base of how much I have actually lost. My weight lose will be base on how I look and feel and how much better it has made me feel and not how much the scale says!!
