Ok, first thing to do is make mini-goals. Don't look at the big picture. I do 3lb goals. Easier to reach, and when I get there I feel great. It's going to take me a long time to reach my ultimate goal and I don't want to wait that long for that feeling of accomplishment. Second, try to cut out things slowly. Remember, it took you a long time to get where you are.
This is a really great place. There is lots of support. I wish you well on your journey.
You reap what you sow. Maybe we should all plant chocolate plants
