I've been reading "Eat This Not That", which has been fairly helpful in terms of teaching me how to make better food choices. I've also been thinking about buying "Thin For Life".
Thanks for sharing--those are great things to be thankful for!
I found an article on "Phantom Fat" here: ?Phantom fat? can linger after weight loss - Health - Women's health - msnbc.com
that is pretty good, but really doesn't give much in the way of advice for actually dealing with the problem. I'll check out "Half Assed" and "Thin for Life"--sounds like it might be what I need. I found a book on eating disorders that really helped me identify and deal with my "all or nothing" attitude towards weight loss. I just don't want to end up like last time.
