Welcome to the site! You have come to the perfect place for encouragement! We have all "been there" in some way or another. Those kids were very rude and their comment was completely unacceptable but I am glad that you are taking it and running with it. One of the major things that got me thinking was that my boys are both teens now and I don't want them to ever be embarrassed to have their mom show up at the school or a function. I am down 33lbs in just over 3 months. Not the fastest weight loss in the world but it works for me. Keep going and come back for support. We can do this together!
