You are such a sweetheart!!! I want you to know that I, in no way, thought that you were being insensitive, and I was not intending to refer to you when I talk about people who don't understand why I need to do this. I get far more encouragement from you and others on this team than from anyone else in my life, and I wouldn't trade y'all for the world!!!
I think that it's always hard to see or understand the struggles that others face. I know alot of people who are overweight look at me and think I have it easy. In some ways, I see it the other way because the biological reality is that it's harder to lose 10 pounds from a 140 pound frame than 10 pounds from a 240 pound frame. I feel like my battle is harder in some ways.
Case in point - a girlfriend of mine just lost 30 pounds by giving up her daily starbucks run and butter on her bread. She admits that she didn't have to count calories or deny herself much, she just cut out the "extras". Well, for me that isn't enough to lose weight. I am already doing those things, so I have to cut deeper to show any results.
Again, so as not to offend, this is not to be insensitive to other people's struggles, because believe me, there are days when I remember to feel fortunate that I don't have a great deal of weight to lose, and I am in awe of the determination and dedication of those who can do it.
It's all about "lending and ear" and doing your best to understand and try to offer helpful advice when we can. That's what we are all here for right?
