Kate
I've never wanted to hurt anyone or shame them I'm not that kind of person.  If you look at my previous posts you'll see that.  You know I've thought about you all day and night.  You've told us all how hard it is for you to get with the program and stay with it.  I think if you go back and read what I wrote (read it like it's from someone who cares about you and wants only to help you, not someone who is trying to be mean, maybe you'll think it's not so bad afterall)  When you come on here and ask for suggestions then you're gonna get different people's opinions, and that is what I was trying to give you: my opinion, my experiences.  I'm sorry if I angered you also but I thought maybe tough love is what you needed.  To make you really try your hardest.  If you could just give it one month, following the program to a T, I think it would really get you pumped up and excited.  I know how it feels to be where you are.  Come on here and post as much as you want and I won't reply for fear of saying the wrong thing.  I only wanted to try to help and it looks like that didn't happen.  I wish you the best: I still remember the girl that came on here and was so hurt by the lady you interviewed with.  Hurts me to think that you would think I'd ever wanna hurt you too.  Good Luck to you, you have many people here that wanna help you...please let them.

Sheila, that was very nicely said.  I think everyone here means well, some people just like giving advise in a tougher manner because that does help others.  I think Kate will see that you did want to help her with your words.

I appreciate it ladies. I apologize if I was too defensive. I have a few stressful things going on personally and I'm probably not in the best mind frame. If it means anything at this point, you did motivate me to really stay on track because I want to prove I am ready! Go figure, huh? Sorry if I was abrasive. I am usually that person that no one believes ever has a hot button. No hard feelings and best of luck with the Thanksgiving challenge!

Can't begin to tell you how important this forum can be for your journey. I have spent many nights reading (instead of eating)!!! We all know when we've slipped and it can't hurt to feel the mistake and learn from it. Say I won't do that again ( you might- I have) and try harder the next day. Just accept the slip and keep going. This program works- some of us take a little longer than others but it's a journey not a sprint and most importantly- we need to relearn habits and make them good ones. 75 lbs lighter and I still sneak in ice cream but now its once or twice a year instead of every other night. Good luck and please keep reading the forums even you don't want to post.
