“Words of comfort from the Bible....but to those parents suffering from an unimaginable loss, I can't imagine they helped much. But I hope those words and what our President did, in some very small way, eased their pain.”

“Linda is amazing. What a transformation. In the family vacation picture, she looks about 20 years older than she does in the final "make-over" picture. GO LINDA! Just like you, I had let my hair go to its natural gray, and when I lost weight, I started getting it colored again. Funny how losing weight can make you care what you look like again. Good Luck at Ragnar--I know your whole team will do GREAT!”

“It might be an advertisement for Spark, but you have nothing to lose by joining the website. It's completely 100% FREE!!! I simply stated that Spark is what I used and it worked for me. I had tried other methods in the past, Weight Watchers, Diet Centers, and always regained. I think the reason Spark worked for me is that I can go there every single day, every minute if I want, and get the inspiration and motivation I need to continue this maintenance journey.”

“Yes, some people have more advantages than I did. But losing weight is never easy. Sheri Shepherd on The View, said that very same thing one day when they were discussing Jessica Simpson's difficulties in losing the "baby" weight. Sheri said, even if you're RICH, losing weight is hard. That's why I say my weight loss is something money couldn't buy. It is very very valuable to me!!!”

“I started my journey to get healthy on Dec. 14, 2009, weighing in at 328 lbs. On April 15, 2011, I hit my goal weight of 160 lbs. So it took me 16 months--average loss was just over 10 lbs. per month. Since that time I have lost an additional 10 lbs. and today weigh in around 150.”

“No surgery. I looked into it at one point but then found out my insurance wouldn't cover the cost. It took me almost four years to decide I could do it on my own. NOW....I am so thankful I didn't have surgery! But I do not judge or begrudge those who do. Each person must choose their own path and any way in which weight can be lost is GOOD in the long run.

To those who say I was pressured by society's view of obesity, to lose weight--UNTRUE! Sure I am enjoying looking better, but the whole reason I lost weight was to get healthier. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

“I have not had any skin removal surgery, but I'd like to. Unfortunately my insurance won't cover anything having to do with weight loss...neither bariatric surgery nor skin removal surgery, so I'm stuck with it. I cover up the excess skin with clothes pretty well however. My worst spots are my upper arms (nothing less than elbow length sleeves for me), and upper legs (no short-shorts). Since I was overweight for so many years (30), this excess skin is not going anywhere, but I'm learning to live with it. It's a lot better than when the skin was filled up with FAT anyhow!

“Pam you are truly an inspiration to everyone! I so admire you for being brave enough to have before and after pictures. Congratulations on all your hard work and determination. I'm in the over 60 crowd and rank in the morbidly obese category. Nobody can tell how much I weigh, which has always been a problem, I've always thought if I didn't look it, nobody would know.. well I know!! And I hate it. I'm going to give it a try again, and hopefully I'll have the same wonderful results you have. Keep up your good work Pam!”

“Congratulations, Pam... You, your story is truly a wonderful inspiration to others out there whom have been going head to head for years with the battle of the bulge. You truly look fantastic and you should be very proud of yourself!!! You go girl!!!”

“I was fearful that as I approached 60, I was going to lose my mobility. That along with the heart scare is what spurred me to lose weight. Now I can go anywhere and do anything, no longer limited by my inability to walk very far. This Friday--I am headed to an amusement park with my grandkids. I wasn't able to do that for so many years, not only could I not walk, I didn't fit on any of the rides. But I went last year for the first time in many years and we had a wonderful time, so I'm going back again! I wish your friend luck, but the decision to lose the weight has to come from her, there's really nothing you can say or do to MAKE her lose weight. When she's ready--she'd do it!”

Dee Pittsburgh on Jul 31, 2012 at 16:24:06

“Exactly, which is what I pointed out in another post under this article. I find that SP and Weight Watchers work on similar principles, but with SP, you don't have to bang your head against the wall trying to figure out your points and you can also track other nutrients, which is terrific for folks like me that want to keep their eye on their sodium, fiber, and other nutrient intakes.

I preach the gospel of SparkPeople everywhere I go, because it truly is the only thing that has worked for me.”

“I think the reason WE formerly fat people ARE news, is because over 60% of the population is overweight and that's not healthy. WE obese are in the majority, so you better get used to dealing with us and our problems! We're not going away until we can lose those excess pounds and just because you can not identify with that, doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist.

“Thanks for the suggestions--I know my teeth are very yellow, but at my age, I'm just lucky to still have them! My wattle (what is leftover from that awful double chin is my badge of pride, at least until I can afford surgery to have it removed. And I just had my hair colored this weekend!!! Good Grief--what do you want from an old woman??? LOLOL!!! I liked it.

“No surgery of ANY KIND, weight loss, skin removal or otherwise. Although I did have a hernia repair a year ago and a hysterectomy earlier this summer, but both were totally unrelated to losing weight. Unfortunately I have lots of excess skin to show for the 175 pounds I lost. No surgery for me, however, as my insurance won't cover it, and I simply cannot afford something like that out of pocket. So for now I cover up my bat wing upper arms with 3/4 length sleeves, and never wear short-shorts. The wattle (what is left of my double chin) however is there for all to see. It is my badge of pride I guess, at least until I can afford surgery!”

“There's no way you can DANCE OFF 100 lbs. Not in the time frame she did it anyhow. Yes she followed a low-calorie diet, but perhaps her products helped her stay on that diet. Any way that she lost the weight is okay by me, sounds like someone is just trying to make a fast buck off of her. GO KRISTIE! You are amazing. I sure hope she can keep it off this time--I know what a struggle maintenance is, having lost 175 lbs. myself and now 15 months into maintaining the loss. Everyday is hard, but it is so worth it!”

“Not covered by most (all) insurance, and horribly expensive. I too have chosen not to have my excess skin removed mostly because of the cost, but am too embarrassed to wear even short sleeves in public, let alone bikinis. Covering up the loose skin is STILL 1000 times better than having to cover up all the fat.”

nutmeg17 on May 25, 2014 at 09:48:26

“Surgery would not only be expensive, but also there are risks. Less risk and complication with belly and upper arm loose skin, but removing excess from the thighs or the butt is much more problematic.”

“I agree she is very pretty and she has talent but so do a lot of other musicians. She has pretty much written the same album every time she comes out with new music. The music was fine when she was still a teenager but she's not anymore. She's the same age as Adele but Adele's music is much more mature then Taylor's. Yes, it's about break-ups too but it's handled in a much more adult fashion. And even Adele mentioned she can't write another break-up album again. Adele only has two album and Taylor has what, four or five? She should really try to expand what she's writing about.”

JuliaOceania on Aug 14, 2012 at 17:54:51

“She is gorgeous and talented... but being gorgeous and talented does not guarantee she is emotionally stable or mature. I think the reason she is dating so young is because no man wants to be featured in the lyrics of her music, would you?”
