nothing like extreme comparisons to make a point huh? :o

on another note - i wonder if that "starving" phase once obese/overweight people experience goes away with time if they are able to keep it off - that would be helpful information for people to know they won't always feel like they are starving...

I never felt like I was starving, I felt like I wasn't stuffed. Occasionally I'll slip and not use a small plate, and I'll eat too much and feel stuffed.

At least in my case, 60 pounds of fat (about one cubic foot) was stress.

I've stopped losing for now, but I really need to drop some more. I'll step up the exercising a bit and eat more vegetables and see what happens.
