Sending you a great big hug, a heap of encouragement, and every good wish that this will turn out to be the last time you'll ever need to lose weight, MD. You can do this! I did... and I'm here to say that even at age 58, it's entirely a worthwhile pursuit. You feel sooo much better, and so many aches and pains go away.
We're pulling for you more than you know and glad you spoke up about that feeling that you're not supported. You very much are! All the best to you, and remember to take things just one day - and sometimes, even just one MOMENT - at a time.
