Life just seems so unfair sometimes. I sit and look around and wonder why it is that some people can eat whatever they want and it never affects them, but someone like me just looks at a piece of chocolate cake and I gain 15 pounds. I know this isn't true but sometimes it feels like it. I have a very supportive group of people around me, which is extremely important to your weight loss journey. If you are someone who feels alone, just know that I am right here with you along with millions of other people. Feel free to comment me and I can help be your support. SUPPORT is a key factor in your success with weightloss. Here is a recipe for some of that comfort food, but a healthier version :)
