It does feel incredibly daunting. Total I have about 130 pounds to lose I think. Diets are a joke to me, they are like cancer of the weight loss world. A healthy lifestyle is the only way to lose weight and keep it off, I think.
It's nice to have someone to relate to! I would love it if you would be my motivation buddy =] Many people have trouble understanding how bad the abdominal pains can be after eating certain foods, and then sometimes having to go to the bathroom once or twice... and god forbid it has to be a public restroom. My dad gets extremely frustrated when I say, "I can't eat that.". He seems to think I can't eat anything and do it to frustrate him personally, haha.
Cruel and unusual punishment about the M&Ms! My family eats icecream every night;I rarely indulge nowadays. When I do, it's usually frozen yogurt as a special treat with my boyfriend. As my sweet tooth is being particularly insistent tonight, I bought a Skinny Cow thing of icecream. I'll usually go for a yogurt.
Forgive me for babbling. What made you decide to make your lifestyle change?
