See How Stephanie Has Lost 90 lbs!posted @6:00am ET on October 24, 2011
Stephanie W., aka Forever Me, has been a Diet.com member for several years, and began blogging with us in October 2008. With a starting weight of 280lbs, Stephanie had a goal of losing 100 lbs. Now down 90lbs (so far!), she's well on her way to a new life - emotionally and physically!

Seeing her brother drop 10 lbs quickly was both infuriating and motivating for Stephanie, and in one Diet.com blog she wrote, "It has now turned into a contest to see who can lose the most weight. It's fun and it gives us something to do." She concluded, "It's nice to have your family to workout with."
Stephanie's fantastic attitude and "slow and steady wins the race" mentality has proven over time to be a brilliant strategy for her. In one of her most inspiring blogs, Stephanie wrote:
"When we first started our diet we thought we would see results overnight and when we didn't we would give up. Now we know this is a 'rest of your life' thing; if you want to stay healthy and in shape you have ... Continue
