Wow. And I thought my mom signing up for gym membership without consulting me first was out of line. Oh love, my mom used to tell me to exercise and lose some weight but never really forced me to do anything. I actually lost 20kgs in the span of 2 years but not through calorie counting and the likes. I failed so many times before I finally succeed. I am happy and fit and healthy now. Skinny should never be the goal. If you'd like to have a chat one of these days, it doesn't have to be about diet. I love your writing about the teddybear and would love to be friends with you. Write me an e-mail if you'd like to ask me any questions. My email is This is not promotion for course or anything like that. Just wanna be friends. Been there done that and would love to share :)
