I don't see that you have much to apologize for. You were on a roll early on and lost lots of weight quickly. I think its pretty easy to think, my gosh I am doing it, what the heck's the matter with the rest of these people!!!
For myself, my weight has been a struggle all my life. I am a compulsive overeater and am trying to uncover all the reasons that may be so. My family moved around so much when I was young that I never could make friends because I knew that within a matter of months we would be gone. I guess I found food as a friend. I had some resentment of my father for moving us around the way he did and the heavier I got, the more verbally abusive he got. Please don't misunderstand-this is not a blame the parents cop out. NOBODY make us eat.
I am also a perfectionist. If things aren't perfect I get irritated and that leads to my bingeing as well.
I guess the point I am trying to make is that everyone's battle is different, and for some of us it is hard and excruciatingly slow.
You certainly haven't offended me!!! That is one reason I like this site so much, we can be honest and tell things how we really feel.
297/269 currently-I be stuck, darn it!!!
