The link takes me to a cooking site. I am guessing this is an old article that got reposted and the video isn't even available? Report
It's a great story but the hosts annoy me--"and now there's joy in your life!" Well, some of us feel joy at our large size too; we're not all sad and mopey until we lose weight. I don't like to perpetuate the stereotype that losing weight will make you happy. YOU have to be happy. I don't feel any happier than I did 90 pounds ago even though I am more comfortable; as Angela says I'm the same person. That's what always-thin people don't want to/don't know how to believe. Report
You can see the happiness on her face. Congrats!!! Report
