    I wish all stories included age and height. We are all looking for inspiration and someone we see ourselves in. Height and age are helpful when trying to find a benchmark for yourself and to imagine what is possible for someone who is similar to you!

      You make a good point, Suzanne! I’ll add “Height & Age” to the form. I”m assuming you mean age that they lost the weight?
