    Wow! That's where I want to be. My only problem is I'm afraid of loose and saggy skin because I'm so big all over.

    I know exactly how you feel. I started out at 242.8 in Sept. 2007 and I've lost 56 pounds so far. I too no longer have to use an electric wheel chair at Super Wal Mart or use my C-PAP! I'm also outside working in the yard and garden, mowing grass! I have a life again! Congratulaltions!
