Success Stories

I love reading success stories in fitness magazines! I hate all the beauty and fashion ads though. Anyway, I would love to see someone do an entire book or magazine focusing just on success stories because I turn to them often as motivation. With that put, I'd love to get some stories/input/ideas from PT members to keep my motivation going. Thanks!!!

Please list:
Your beginning weight
Current Weight
Weight Goal
