Boy, does this resonate! I can't imagine anyone I've met on this site ever being anything but loving, compassionate, and sharing. But I have much more empathy with folks who fight "the Battle of the Bulge" now than I did before I'd gained weight. I find, though, that I want to share with them what SB has brought back to my life: health!!! My friend Mark took up SB after he saw my reasults -- he's probably more than 100 pounds over his ideal -- and I just feel so happy for him when he gets excited about his new-found success. But you know, he's always been a warm, wonderful person, and it doesn't matter what he weighs to most people. I just want to have him around a long time, so for that reason alone, thinner is better!
