I chose my screen name when I looked in the mirror and could not believe it was me, down over 80 pounds after years as an overweight kid, teen, adult. I felt like a miracle! Now I just see me, a me that must keep tracking and working to control my weight so that small gains don't become a trend. Worth the work? Absolutely.
