I understand the reluctance to post them & along with
the others, I'm glad you did.

Congratulations on your fine success.

You know what I think of you Cheri. You're what gives this board that "human" feel......and makes it a home for so many of us.
I'm so glad you finally decided to post your progress pics for us. Your success and story are an inspiration to everyone, from newbies to old timers.
As far as inspiration, you are second to none girl. And to top it that off.......you go out of your way to make this board a great experience for everyone.

They don't come any better than you Cheri.

Cheri. What can I say that hasn't already been said. But I wanted you to know that your story moved me very much.

The Alton gathering got me restarted, but it's storys and pictures such as yours that will keep me sustained as I battle and finally conquer my demons.

Thank you.

Your an inspiration....

Sherri , I just began my quest to take the weight off again , this time for good and your story has with all certainty inspired me. I too had lost a great deal of weight , and after a severe head injury , seizures, and a couple of years on dilantan to overcome all this I came to the realization that its time to get serious again. so here I am , 50 lbs heavier but even more determined to do the thing I have not had the strength to do , and after reading your testimony, I know with support from you and all others on this site I CAN DO IT..Thank you and Keep up the good work and God Bless ...Fleda

Cheri- Way to go. You really look amazing.

I have been lurking here the last few days, I stayed away ever since having a beautiful baby last year. I knew I had to get back here and start over but, I thought it would be so hard this time.

My little boy will be 1 year old next week and I weigh 10 pounds more than I did the day I went into labor - yep, did not lose any of the baby weight and even managed to gain 10 pounds.

Well, today was day 2 for me and I am planning to stay on Induction for as long as I can. Before I got preg, I was able to lose 43 pounds, - I know the second time is harder to see results and I am ready for that.

You are an inspiration to me! After reading your post I know that there is nothing that we cannot do.

Thanks for all your support. You have helped so many wonderful people on this board - including me.

I hope that your children realize what a *gem* they have for a mommy.

Cheri, such an amazing story.....Isn't it wonderful how our children wake us up w/a few simple words & somehow make it all worthwhile.....We know in order to be good for them we need to be good to ourselves, but sometimes we need a little push in that direction...You are truly on a wondeful journey and I commend you for that....Congrats to you & your little boy...he needs his Mom & you listened...

I'm bumping this because sometimes it just takes 1-Post, 1-Persons honesty to help you keep going. To let you know you are worth it and it can be done.

Thank you for sharing Cheri. I could feel every word as I read it. I know it's tough but we will make it.

Awww this is so cool... thanks again... I am still working on it... not at goal yet but I will get there... I'm going to keep plugging away till I do!!!

RoseMary... I am not an egg person either... I will have it now and then but not often. Alot of the time I will have leftovers from the night before.... or a salad. You can eat dinner for breakfast any ole time.
