Wink Thanks so much, everyone!

SusanB --- Basically, I have a very calorie restricted diet and I exercise at least 6 days a week for at least an hour every day. So far it's been working pretty well. I make sure to eat plenty of protein and vegetables, but not many carbs, and I also take vitamin supplements so that I'm not sacrificing as much nutritional content, and I drink a TON of water... Feel free to have a look at my fitday for details (I haven't input today yet...)

Thanks for the wonderful compliments, everyone! You've made my day so much brighter!

Nash---I love your webpage! It's very cleverly designed and I really enjoyed reading your story. I'm sorry you've had so many horrible things happen to you! You're looking great, too!

I agree, SusanB! I have tried a lot of different options in the past, and all were good for me, but this is the one that has worked the best so far. If I can think of losing weight purely as a math game, it becomes less difficult to do it (typical engineering brain, I suppose ). I only take in between 30-40% of what I burn each day, so logically, I know the plan HAS to work. There's no way it can't work!

I guess this is the same game everyone else calls "mind over body"... but, regardless of the name, it WORKS! Taking the focus off of my own willpower and my own strength, and instead shifting it to a numbers game makes it easier for me to follow the plan!
