    your story isn't so different from mine. I spent 12 years as a vegetarian/vegan/raw vegan and ultimately could not lose the weight I needed to lose. Now that I'm eating this way, the weight is coming off again. Most people truly do not understand what it's like to be overweight, or the extreme pressure that puts on us to count calories, etc. Society is programmed to think that if you weigh too much, you're just a gluttonous sloth... which as you and I know extremely well is not the truth. I used to spend days marveling at the amount of food my thin friends could shovel away without gaining a pound. Unfortunately, nutrition just doesn't work the same for all of us.

    I do still track what I eat, but I make it a point to never eat less if I am hungry. I use cronometer and I just make sure I eat enough to get all the vitamins and minerals I need each day, and to never be hungry. It happens that I average between 1000 and 1200 calories a day at the moment, but I really don't think calories are something we should try to limit. That just happens to be what I'm feeling full and satisfied on at the moment.

    So I say good for you! Keep doing what you're doing, and as long as you're feeling good and seeing progress, you'll know you are on the right path.

    PS... I agree, Gilleh is an insensitive idiot. Just ignore them.
