Cheri, thanks for taking an amazing step past the shyes and telling us your story. I know you're even more shy than I am, so I know it's been really hard for you to do.

I'm so glad that you were able to finally put those pictures side-by-side so that you could see how big a change you've really made. I know that doing that has made all the difference for me and I'm glad it's made such a difference for you!!

Thank you all for such great responses... I was going back and forth on posting my story for about a month because I am very shy and was embarrassed about my before pictures... You all are so supportive and I am glad I posted them.

You all are so very special to me... thanks for everything..

Cheri, you look amazing. You're a true inspiration - as well as quite possibly the sweetest and nicest person I've ever seen on a message board.

congrats on how far you've come you're absolutely lovely, great pics

Cheri...that was one of the best posts I have read here. I especially liked the part where your angel came for you!

You have been a great inspiration for me...even before I read this.

We'll get there...

Thanks for posting this Cheri!

I've also regained what I lost from low carbing due to serious health problems, and I'm sure that you and I arent the only ones.

Its really great to see that someone else has walked the road. It helps enormously.

Cheri, You are among the few people in this world I hold dear to my heart. I have waited so long to see this thread. I can't tell you how happy it makes me for you.

Well over half of this battle is fought in the mind, and so few people understand that. It takes a lot of work, and changing the way you think to really overcome the things that hold us back, and you've had so many health issues on top of it. You've come a long way, and posts like this will help you to overcome your shyness and remember that you deserve as much happiness and love as anyone else on this earth.

You are one inspiring woman, and you have some lucky kids.

Cheri, you are awesome and inspiring! I'm so glad your DS was there to remind you why you need to be here. You may not reach your goal quickly, but you will reach it. Slow and steady DOES win the race!

Cheri,

These types of posts are the reason I can't stray far from the boards. Inspirational and from the heart.

There is nothing more I can add that hasn't already been said. Thank you for the time you put into these boards, thanklessly helping others out.
