I'm contacting you because I wanted to share my weight loss story. I used to weigh 250 pounds. I was unhappy and unhealthy. A health scare (diabetes) woke me up and I decided it was time for a change. I lost weight through calorie counting and exercise (swimming was my favorite activity). I lost 110 pounds and I've kept it off for over 2 years now. I'm now an athlete. And addicted to running! I've run several races--including the Hood to Coast Relay Race (197 mile relay race here in Oregon). I hope 2011 has a Half Marathon and a Sprint Triathlon in my future. I think my story is different than most because I lost the weight on my own--without any programs, fad diets or surgery. My website is http://www.110pounds.com.
