    I needed this today. Thank you! I am crying here because I am where you used to be. I have a terrible time giving up processed sugar and flour I WANT to so badly! I did it before and then I slid back into my bad habits and that was it. I hope your example can help me get through and get on the right track again!

  • Thank you for sharing your experience. I needed to read this today; it gives me hope.
  • Excellent ,motivational story ! And by the way, YOU have the last laugh on that server. YOU have lost the weight and done SO WELL! YOU are an INSPIRATION TO OTHERS ! I thank you for sharing your story! And CONGRATS on your FANTASTIC WEIGHT LOSS!
  • This really hit me. Especially your experience with that nasty server. I have a somewhat similiar experience that led me to loose 53 pounds.

    I was at a quick trip getting gas and decided to go inside and get a treat for me and my boyfriend. While picking out two chocolate covered long john's a skinny girl, a little younger than me, whipsers " fat a***" as she walks past me. I was shocked. I couldn't belive what I had heard. I looked down and noticed what I was wearing: sweats. In a daze I took my donuts and purched them and shared them with Justin. The whole time eating my donut I thought about my experience and then told him what happpended. Before this I wasn't conscious of my weight. I became furious with that girl. Who did she think she was saying such hateful things. I thought about how when she started college how she might find how weight gain can just slip on you without you noticing. After thinkig sbout this soe more I came to the conclusion that yes I needed to loose weight, yes that girl needs to be taught some manners, and yes I was going to loose weight. For me.
  • Thank you for your story it was very motivating and I'm very happy for you that you have done so well. Maybe you should have gone back to the restaurant and sat in her section again and ordered a diet soda again and said remember me. What's so ridiculous about her comment is you could have been diabetic besides it was none of her business. I had a similar experience to you when I was heavier it wasn't a waitress but a sales rep in a clothing store. I was looking at a rack of tops and she said to me those won't fit you they are way too small. I was devastated today if someone said that to me I'd say how do you know it's for me and oh by the way I'd like to speak to your supervisor. People can be so prejudice and ignorant. You've done really well no matter what hold your head high you have every right to be proud of yourself. All the best to you.
  • It's so funny that you spoke of the noticing challenge. I had my spark last Dec and am working hard at losing the 70 lbs I need to. But I had your same experience. I wanted people to notice but no one really did until around 30 lbs. Now everyone asks about it.. It's pressure.. like what happens when I hit a plateau or what if I fail... It will be public.. I can't help the negative thoughts. Congrats to you for your success and for stating what so many of us have experienced.
  • Thank you, I am still searching for my a-ha! moment. I really struggle between the hard of being overweight and the hard of losing weight. Congrats to you. I also hate when people notice when I lose weight. My twisted thought process always tells me that it only means that they noticed how much fatter I was before! Weight is indeed a struggle! Congrats again, and thank you for sharing.
    I don't understand how a waiter/waitress could say something to you about your weight? I've been in that business for a long time and I would NEVER say anything to anyone about what they ordered to eat OR drink!

    Yes, I am overweight and I am probably more sensitive to the subject......I REALLY HOPE YOU DID NOT LEAVE A TIP FOR THIS SERVER! (that would send a message to the server about their "service")

    Congratulations on your weight loss!
  • "Life isn't all or nothing." Thank you for that.
