You did wonderfully! You had my full attention throughout the whole speech. You looked great and presented it well. It makes me realize that my goal needs to be to get in the healthy weight zone and KEEP IT OFF! Which requires a lot of education about nutrition and exercise and applying what I know for the rest of my life!
Wow! *applause* well done you! That takes some guts to stand in front of your class mates and be so honest like that about something so personal! I am in awe! You seriously rock! This might not have been a motivational speech but it motivated me! I think you will rock as a motivational speaker for sure! Also well done on the massive weightloss!!! I have just joined and have 238lbs to lose I totally get where you're coming from! xx 2268 days ago
FANTASTIC Speech. You did an excellent job representing yourself and your quest towards a healthier you. Try not to feel stressed about not knowing what you want to do for the rest of your life. I didn't have a clue at 28...or even 30. I always had "jobs", but it wasn't until almost 4 years ago that I finally found my CAREER (in Human Resources). It took awhile, but I finally found something that just clicked...You will too!!! 3012 days ago
You did an excellent job with your speech. Not only was the speech well-done, but I also have to say that I really admire your courage in giving it. As someone who's been struggling with my weight for about 20 years (highest weight 272 lbs), I have to say that, until recently, I've always done everything possible to avoid the topic of weight (and, whenever it was even mentioned in even an offhand manner, I'd die a little inside, if you know what I mean). I guess that it was my way of pretending that, if the topic of weight didn't come up, no one would think too much about my weight (and then judge me for weighing too much). Even today, I wouldn't be brave enough to give the talk that you gave. Excellent job! You are SO inspiring. 3086 days ago
Your speech was excellent and you deserved the AA++. Your speech was inspiring to me and I hope you were also inspired. You would make a wonderful modivational speaker. So many of us have trouble keeping our Spark, and I'm just getting it back too. We can never give up on ourselves just the way we would never give up on a loved one. Yvonne 3112 days ago

I loved your speech! Such an inspiration, educational, and informative! I'm glad you made the video and wish you the best of luck on your journey. I know exactly what you mean about falling off the wagon. I have already and I just started, but, because of your speech, I know I can pick myself back up and continue down that road to a healthier weight and lifestyle. Thank you so much for making it for all of us! 3125 days ago
Excellent speech -- informative and candid, and you let strangers into your life, so they can honestly see how isolating and painful our journey can be. That kind of communication helps us all. Thank you for your journey and thank you for your advocacy for the obese.
WOW...Did you ever find out who put those twinkies on your car ? More importantly where do they park their car? Lets pay them a visit ;-) Counting calories, working out or becoming mentally prepared. Which one is the hardest? You are not alone with the feeling of seeing a little pinprick of light. 3126 days ago
