I will first tell you what I tell my kids and I have always tried to live by:

No one can make you feel bad about yourself except YOU.

AND=>
People who try to make people feel bad actually feel bad about themselves. Seeing someone else hurting and miserable makes thme feel better about themselves.

I second the "these people are cretins". IGNORE them.

Now to the cravings- you've shed 53 pounds. That is no small feat. Walk proud. I keep sugar-free gelatin in the house for sugar cravings. Sometimes, fruit just doesn't work. I sometimes top it with the whip cream that comes in a can- 15 calories for a good size squirt (and that's not even the 'lite' version). I also have kids so I know it won't stay around too long- no temptation to finish the whole thing.

I also allow myself a dessert every night. Sometimes it's stella d'oro anisette toast, sometimes two oreos, sometimes sorbet or sherbet. Plan it, stick to the quantity. Eat it slowly. Then- pick up a book, plan your menu for tomorrow, go back to fitday and look at your stats, your menus, talk to us.

keep on keepin' on....
