I love the backpack analogy. Beautiful.
Thanks Dawn! I remember when I was new seeing you hit the 70 pounds milestone and cross into Onderland, and then go on to so much more ... and I just plan on following you all the way to maintenance.

OMG! Chris, You look absolutely lovely, darling! Congratulations!
It's funny, a lady at a party mentioned that she had joined a local hiking club and I had never thought of joining one as I thought they would all be pros! Then last night I was browsing through one of the local hiking club and they were talking about "backpacking" but only wanted experienced people to join them. I never thought I could carry a backpack but your story is truly inspirational.
Maybe, I'll try a day's hiking instead of overnight one at first. You are my role model!

I know just what you are saying. I use a laptop at work. I carry it in a backpack with the power cord, a 6 foot cable and a book. I carry this and my purse, which I must confess is much too heavy. I often take the stairs which is the equivalent of 2 floors. When I get to my desk and put my backpack and purse down I feel so light and there is no way those 2 item weigh 75 pounds which is how much I lost. I think every morning how did I carry all that weight around with me .

Christine I am simply astounded by those photos. What a miracle you have wrought over the past 12 months. My congratulations and big, big hugs.

The backpacking was an amazing thing to accomplish too, how wonderful that you can now share in this kind of family outing. You have done an incredible job job.

So proud and happy that you are a JUDDD BUDDD.

With all your walking, I think you'd be fantastic in a hiking club!
My DH and DS are going on a 50 mile hiking trip over a week with boy scouts in a few weeks ... and all the people going have been training for it by doing shorter hikes. The backpack hurt my back almost right away, but DH and DS assured me that was "normal." I think it takes a while to strengthen those back muscles! Anyway, I think you should do it ... you'd be great. I wish we could hike together.

It puts me in mind of Fairy Wren/Evie's upcoming 6 week walking holiday, following Camino Frances: Once a week weighers

That would be a lovely JUDDD hiking holiday

We hiked 7 miles up, spent the night next to a mountain lake, and 7 miles back the next day. I'm not going to lie, the last two miles each way were tough, but it was so beautiful and a great and memorable experience for my family, and I felt strong and grateful along the way. (This is my DS14 who has just passed me up in height!).
Wow..... just wow..... just when I was feeling down and feeling like I couldn't do this, I see great success stories like this. What a HUGE inspiration!!!! And, I LOVE this NSV!!!! This has recently become something that is more important to me than the actual weight loss. THIS is what I hope to accomplish in a year (although with my fear of heights I'd much prefer hiking 7 miles flat across a beach, but you get my point ). Honestly though, I think this is so amazing and I am going to save this post and remember this when times get tough. Good for you and thanks for sharing!!!

Now, as for the evil scale thing, you look much thinner to me than the metal dummie suggests. I am sure it's all the crazy insane fitness you are doing! That "onderland" party thing, you are so THERE!!!! Just look at you!!!!!!!

Again, enormous congratulations!!! You are beautiful inside and out gf!!! I can't wait to go through the rest of your journey with you! You rock!!!!!!!!

I couldn't find my gallery either! So I contacted support, and found out that they have removed personal galleries due to technical issues, so now we need to link from something like photobucket or use the faces gallery. They said if I sent them the photos they would put them back in the post (since the editing time has expired), and I did that, so hopefully they will show up soon. Good to know about the galleries!
