Thank you! this is where I am going for inspiration and motivation when I need it. It is so wonderful to find people who "get it", been there and lived (or are living) to tell the tale. It is like a virtual support system. I can't even begin to express my gratitude.
Everyone in my day to day life is either very thin (coworkers -- the biggest is maybe 130, if that) or have major issues with dieting (my family -- which is probably one of the factors that got me to this point). I mean, I love them all to death, but they only make me feel worse (not on purpose). This is something I need (NEED) to do for me.
