I'm trying to!
The ten reasons are why I am here. Thank you .
Very helpful article that sets the record straight about weight loss. Thanks, Becky!
Thank you for giving me even more motivation to lose the first 10%!!!
Thank you for the article. What happens when you are afraid of leaving your home?? Because people are looking at you???Or will say the wrong person
Well, #5 is not working for me... I have lost 20% of my weight and my arthritis is not better.
There was a clickable link to the guide for portion sizes but I was unable to find the guide on the site it went to. Perhaps these older articles need an update on occasion to make sure information is still current.
Thank you for the reminder. Good article!
Great info! Thanks!
I have a bit of a conundrum. I never feel "stomach hungry". I got heavy by eating 6-800 calories a day and throwing myself into starvation mode and killing my metabolism. I had to start eating more to lose weight. Now I dont know whether I should stick to my calorie guidelines even if I feel full or if I should stop eating when I'm full like they tell everyone else. Not sure I'll ever get this figured out.
