F/24/5’4 [226lbs > 152lbs = 74lbs lost] Here I am, 14 months later, with my signed contract to join the US Army. I finally met the weight/height requirements and I couldn’t be happier. I still have a ways to go but this a big moment for me and my weight loss journey!

My decision to join the Army is one I made with great pride and understanding. I come from a large military family and this is something I’ve wanted to do my whole life. I know the pros/cons and am very familiar with the military culture and lifestyle! Please do not post negative comments about the military because this isn’t about the military— it’s about me reaching a huge milestone in my weight loss journey! I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind but there are more appropriate subs for that. More importantly, for the people getting downvoted for wishing me luck in my career; thank you so much for your words, I see you and I appreciate you so much! :)
