Good to see you're still here and being successful in your weight loss!!! You must look fab. x
Yes, eating well and not exercising is OK. Exercising and eating poorly is not as good, but still better than eating poorly and not exercising--it takes longer to get into serious trouble. I know you're back on track now and that is great. I'm glad you've not given in to the "all or nothing thinking" that has derailed so many (myself included) in the past. In the whole scheme of things, 20 pounds is nothing and I'll bet you see that gone in a month or two (if not sooner).
I did post a "before" and "during" pic back around the 5th of May on my one-year anniversary of the lifestyle change--it's over in the Success Stories subforum. I'm about 20 lbs lighter now than in that pic so I'll take another "during" shot soon.
