    hi there
    can i ask you a favour - can you type in lower case!
    i find it really hard to read your posts when they are all in capital letters, it sends my eyes all funny!
    my caps don't work on my laptop unless i press really hard which is why i hardly ever use mine - which is prob just as annoying for some people!

    hope you don't mind me saying something - cos i really want to read and respond!

    It sounds like you have had a tough time with them and I agree it is an unkind comment.

    Could I just add, and I am being straight here. You are not half starving yourself because of people like them, but because of the choices you made. Yes it may have been as a result of people like them and how you let them make you feel.

    I think on our LL journey and the ultimate goal in being successful at not only losing the weight but more importantly, keeping it off we have to address the fact that the person who made us overweight no matter what we experienced in life is us. I believe that is the first step in dealing with our relationship with food.

    I have great support from my family & friends so I can't complain there.

    You are amazing doing LL - just tell yourself that now and again.

    Keep smiling hun

    I don't have much time to post I'm afraid except to say that I totally agree with what Kat is saying. sorry it's brief!

    big hugs to you, don't let people get to you. It is rude and juvenile to a point to call people names but Dean does let them do it.

    I also agree with Daisy, could you use lower case? I'm assuming you're posting form your phone or something?

    Hmmmm i'm not sure if i understood your post correctly as it's very difficult to read (with no commas and in capital letters, sorry hun)

    But... seems to me like you're trying to blame other ppl for the way things are and for having to go on the program. Or am i wrong?
    Hun, one thing that i may suggest is that worrying or getting upset about what others think is NOT going to take you very far.
    I know it can be frustrating when you have to deal with ignorant poeple but at the end of the day you have made a choice to be on this journey for a reason right?
    LL is NOT (can't stress is strong enough) a short term, quick solution to a lifelong problem. I have learned it the hard way when i went on it 3 years ago and largely influenced by other poeple i left the program 2 weeks before finishing my foundation.
    People were telling me i'm getting too thin and that it doesn't suit me and that i'm being a 'fun spoiler' when refusing to eat at parties and such. Stupidly i listened. I wanted to believe them and how wrong was i??
    I left the program and suddenly i was left to deal with the 'normal' life and food on my own. Obvioulsy i failed miserably and all those 'friends' of mine who wanted me to be 'normal' again were the quickest at pointing out that i failed again and put the weight back on!
    It took me 3 long years of living in denial and shame. I realised i need to stop beating myself up for failing and simply try again but this time just for me. ME. And noone else.
    The point i'm trying to make Sam is that this is YOUR life and you are the only one who can change it. Look at this time in your life as a very positive thing and try to completely ignore other people's negativity.
    I hope in time (like me) you'll learn to ignore the bad energy surrounding you and concentrate on the positive. I am sure you have lots of supporting people around you. Focus on them and kill the others with a smile and kindness!

    Don't worry about grammer, etc., No one will be grading your paper... ;) Just write as you can, whatever you need to say. SOmetimes just blurting it out makes you feel better. :)
