Weight loss is not the only goal of the McDougall Plan. Weight issues are the easiest to judge with a glance--but what about that slim, attractive person with 300+ cholesterol? Asthma? Digestion problems? It is just as hard for those folks to change their lifestyle & work toward health, while balancing it with families who may or may not be supportive.
Sharing our struggles is the best way of getting a fresh point of view, & finding solutions. I learn a lot from seeing this give-and-take in the forum, & appreciate people being open & honest about their mistakes & difficulties. It just makes success that much sweeter when it happens.
I tend to not take a poster seriously when they use their first post to criticize. **shrugs** Don't let it get you down, Porcelain Interior. I enjoy your posts.
