That fallacy is what made me go from a 140 lb high school student to a 200 lb 35 year old. Dieting made me fat.
Thanks for your inspirational posts and I too will look carefully and try to plan out my journey. Yes I think your right about the dieting made me fat. I've been dieting since I was 18 yrs old and I'm 54 now at 315 lbs. Well I better get buzy and look over my past, present and future to set this plan in motion.
Best Regards, Elaine
