Buckettgirl: Wow, you've had a lot of really good responses.

I have to repeat that (IMHO) you will need to learn how to eat real food in a healthy way eventually, no matter what plan you are on. And it's worth repeating that losing the weight won't make all your problems disappear.

I know you said that you don't like protein shakes. Are Slim-Fast shakes of the same nature? Going along with the idea of fasting for a few days, you could try SF shakes (or another brand?) and try drinking only those for a while to see if you can use that way of eating for any length of time.

You have a lot of emotions at this point and that's understandable. Between the offer and the hope of graduating at goal, you have a much to think about. BUT, your dad also gave you time. Do some research. Learn as much as you can so that you can make an educated decision, based more on what you've learned rather it being emotion-driven. It might help for you to write down your feelings about the offer, about graduation, about losing weight so quickly, etc., so that you can try to see a pattern that would help make a decision.
