    Hi Roni,
    I am a long time lurker but wanted to say thanks for all the great information and for the inspiration you give every day. I know you said you weren’t going to play into that person’s drama any more but here is the comment I left her. I didn’t feel right leaving her a comment when I haven’t ever commented to you.

    comment left to the girl who finds 1 point tortillas ridiculous:
    I find it interesting that you find so much joy from this. Sometimes people like to have drama in order to feel like their life is interesting or making a difference. No one can change another person’s point of view for them, they have to do this for themselves (just like anything in life including weight loss). I recently lost 25 pounds with Weight Watchers not because I think/thought that I would be happier or that people would like me more but because I want to be healthier and be around longer for my family. I used to be in the “I just accept myself in my own skin, even if I am 35 pounds overweight, camp”. Then I discovered that is just an excuse to hide behind the fat in order not to deal with some emotional issues. A lot of people eat and gain weight as a way not to deal with what is going on in their life. They are hiding behind their fat. I am not saying this is you but that is just how it is for a lot of people. America is an unhealthy, all consuming nation (gimme, gimme). I am wondering why it is so bad that some people want to make a difference and be healthier? Well, I have fed way too much into your drama induced high, maybe you feel a little better though.

    Thanks again for all of you do. Something I am still learning with losing weight is that it is on going and that I learn something new every day. Thanks for being one of my “teachers”. Kim
