I am sooo happy right now. Just had a glass of warm milk with sugar and gelatine in it! Sweet hot milk was my favourite childhood drink. I love that I'm "allowed" to drink it again before bed
I'm planning on eating a snack before bed from now on. I always used to do it, and I think it will help me sleep. I hope.
Thanks <3 Yeah, the problem is really with me, not my body though... My housemate has a similar amount of body fat to me, but she considers herself skinny! Weird how some people dgaf.

Thanks - that's good to keep in mind. I'm just frustrated cos I stalled for two weeks, or even gained a little. I just feel like I have so much to lose before I'm even close to where I was before this whole ordeal. And then it seemed like I went backwards... but it;s a process: I appreciate that. And I learned things!
As for the weight loss going slowly--just remember, slow weight loss is weight loss that you can keep off. Usually, if you lose weight rapidly, it's also really easy to gain it back. And losing and regaining is pretty pointless so, in that sense, slow weight loss is a good thing!
Welcome TP Ha, the PT being a jerk seems to be the general consensus with the ladies here

Thanks for the lifting tips - that's really helpful. I might just try doing 2-3 full body routines a week and see how I go. You lift, right? What's your protocol?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
