"..Keep in mind how far you have come...and NOT how much more you have to go... " From this pic, you can imagine why I have the amount of excess skin that I do..I have officially scheduled my surgery for the month of February! I am SO READY for this next step. It really is incredible what you can accomplish when you start believing in yourself. Please don't give up...

Another race in the books! I love running. It is what I NEED to do! It helps me physically (to keep the weight off) and also emotionally (my form of therapy). Despite knowing that after this run I will be all chafed (bec of my excess skin) I keep running and I do it with a smile. Why? Because I remember a point in my life where I couldn't even do that! Through this journey, I have learned to appreciate the small things, the little victories, and to look at the big picture. Weight loss is a long road and sometimes it will take multiple steps to get you to your “finish line.” Focus on how far you have come and not on how much more you have to go--thats my motto! For those of you, who are supporting me in this last step, THANK YOU! I am humbled and so grateful. It truly means the world to me. When I was 350 lbs I never imagined making it this far. I cannot believe how much progress I have made. I have come full circle and I'm only getting started. I have such big dreams of helping people all over the world and now I have the confidence to pursue it, no matter how big that dream is! I share my story at every Biggest Loser RunWalk race and I cannot tell you how many people email me afterwards and tell me that they started their journey because of me. You never know who you will touch and how you will literally change someone's life and pain. Be someones light! -Francy xoxo

I made this video because a lot of people asked to see photos of me before the show and a glimpse of my journey. This is just a brief look at it, it has been a long road BUT so worth it. I can't tell you how many times I prayed for change in my life. I wasn't ready in those moments. As the song says
"They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see the way, get through the rain
A small but still, resilient voice
Says hope is very near"
Put in the work..and just BELIEVE!

Hey girl -- grats on your weight loss -- as a nurse I will tell you that there are places that will do the surgery for FREE if you donate the skin to patients needing skin grafts -- I know there is a place in Kansas City, Mo. -- check it out :)

good luck, and I have to echo what someone else has said.. even with taxes, your per diem is more than I make, as a professional.. that being said, thanks for being so inspirational, keep going, you can do this! Im truly sorry, I can only offer emotional support, but I will think of you, and wish you well.

Excited for you! I love the biggest loser i watch it each week! I go up and down with my weight... I have 40lbs to lose its a challenge for me! I workout like crazy but the scale stays the same. I wish they would do a show with those who want to lose 50lbs or less. What we can do to lose those stubborn calories. I am excited for you and your journey! Everyone is an inspiration to me!

Watched you on the show (Biggest Loser has been one of my fave show for years now) and also saw this post thru Courtney. You are such an Amazing person Francy, I don't even have to meet you to know that because it just beams through you!! I'm so proud of all you have accomplished in becoming a more healthy woman & despite your frustrations have continued to fight. Like you've said, times are tough financially with most now a days, but honestly giving up a coffee once a week or walking to work to save gas $ is worth it to me to have an extra $5 a week to share with someone who Truly deserves it!! So that's what I'll be doing as My part, every week I'll donate what I have saved. YOU deserve this & I hope many more people are touched by your story and are able to help you reach this very important goal :-) I wish you All the best, and as one of my fave quotes says....."You may not always end up where you thought you were going, but you'll Always end up where you were meant to be."

Francy, keep up the great work. I personally have lost 140 lbs and still have another 100 to go. The journey is so hard and you've done it. If anyone deserves this it's you. I'll be making small donations as I can along the way. Go get me girl!!

I saw the link to your page through Courtney's on FB and I have to say I was extremely touched. I myself started at 330 lbs and have lost about 102 as of today. I still have a ways to go, but I'm already worried about how much worse my already obvious skin issues are going to get. But like you said, it's better than having heart problems or diabetes or any number of health issues due to obesity! I truly wish you the very best and hope you're able to raise the $ you need for your surgery. I dread the day when I'll have to do the same. Can't wait to see the results!!

I watched you on the show and am so impressed with what you have accomplished. I have also lost nearly 100 pounds over the past two years (and am running my 9th half marathon in Long Beach CA next month!) and have similar skin issues that will require surgery to fix, and are a challenge to deal with every day! I am happy to donate something to help you, because I know how hard you have worked to get this far, and how the extra skin makes further progress so difficult. You keep on doing what you are doing and I wish you the best of luck with the surgeries :-) Jillian's DVD's and online support have also helped me so much - everyone needs to pay it forward! You go girl!!

Last weekend I attended a workout with Jillian in Atlantic City. Although I still adore Jillian, the experience was a disappointment (unorganized, missing equipment, only 30 minute session w/ no Q&A or Meet & Greet) and it cost over $100. Hope everyone in that room sees your post and donates 10% of what they paid for that workout. Donating now. Good Luck!

"We were given a per diem of $100 dollars a day all while having the same bills to pay at home and not to mention once we were eliminated there were no per diems" That seems like a lot of money to me! More than what I make at my job. Good luck in your journey. I have yet to reach my goal weight but I will.... you are a true inspiration.
