Wow! I am feeling overwhelmed with the response I have received here, and on all my other social media outlets the past 2 days - over 400 blog page views and more than 130 comments, likes and messages. I was not expecting that AT ALL.
Thank-you everyone for all the very kind words!! It really means a lot to me. I hope I can be an inspiration to someone else trying to make a healthy life change and reach their goals. I promise I will respond to everyone curious about how I've done it as soon as I can.
