    It's great to hear from you!! I hope things are going well. I think, in general, it helps to keep our bodies guessing as they get used to the norm easily. Carb cycling helps break that up. I do it and calorie cycling too when I'm seriously wanting to get some weight off.

    WOW Abby !! U are doing an AMAZING JOB !! WOWZERS !!! CONGRATTERS !!! I HAD hit 174 back in 2012, but than I moved across the country to Colorado from Maine and it was with those I had considered to be family. They weren't by blood, but through the heart. The Mom , I love as a D,,,,she had recently before we moved had her ex move in with her and the 2 grands. Turned he is/was a COMPLETE JERK to the MAX and THAN SOME !! The ONLY thing he understood was to be abusive emotionally and at times physically, wll that was the kids. I had PROMISED myself I'd NEVER be in that situation AGAIN !! My step monster was sooo awful that the day he died,, I CELEBRATED !! :)

    While out there,,,, I got so scared to even leave my room for the most part. So yeah I'd grab QUICK things to eat, not the best choices. I NO longer wanted to go the grocery store with him,,, so the one I was able to get to was quite expensive,,, I could easily do that, but their choices were NOT good. I put on weight. Than after being home for a year I developed an ulcer which became infected into the bone. It took 2.5 years to recover fully. The way to do was to have my big toe amputated,,, believe me that IS FINE !! During most of that time I was not allowed to move hardly at all,, until I FREAKED OUT "I NEED to Exercise ! My weight has gone up 46 lbs !" So YEAH it's now going back down !! I am hoping around the 3rd week of Feb I WILL HIT the 100 MARK GONE ! WOOHOOO !!!

    TY for adding me as a friend,, I am now you also !! AGAIN CONGRATTERS !! IMPRESSIVE ! BUT !! We both know it is NOT Easy and it doesnt just come off. There are sooo many emotions and yes, no emotional feelings which HAVE to be overcome and that takes a very strong person,,, yes I see this in you !! Still we are along this journey for LIFE !
