i think moms(because i am one) worry about diets on their children and think that it may be a quick fix and lead you to be disappointed. i know that she's proud, just may be holding back because she wants to make sure your doing it the healthy way. maybe she doesn't understand the ip way or maybe she has *sorry to say this* failed in diets of her own, so she just worries about you getting let down too.

you're doing great hun, please believe all of us when we say that!

He has seen me try hard for a long time, get 35 or 40 off and then float back up. He just wanted me to really stay at it.

When I saw him 3 weeks ago, he was really excited and kept saying "I am so proud of you. You are really looking great!" and, he was bragging to friends and people about me. It was worth the wait!

Frankly, I would have been crushed, too. But with longevity comes perspective. I'm with Carla. I think your mom probably didn't want to vest too much emotion at this point thinking she might set you up for a fall when all she really needed to do was just give you a little encouragement. Well, you've got it here, and in spades.

Thanks guys Maybe someday when I'm a mom I'll understand why you all are so loco.
