I think this is the best thing to do. I doing this, we are learning to ignore the things that we cannot control, and that are bad for our health. I know that if I buy cookies, I'll eat all of them, and eat too much and gain weight. Because I know that I can't control myself on that, the better thing to do is to never buy it again !
You're losing weight much faster when you don't eat restricted item. I know it's hard, but you'll be able to eat the things that you wan't MUCH faster by doing that!!
You are an inspiration to me! I started this diet at 190, and you at 248, and you're having some amazing result. It's normal that as time goes by, it's getting more difficult to loose. Don't give up !!
Now, we're the same height and weight, so we can walk in this together! I'll be watching your results with interest for sure
