I had no idea you've lost 95 pounds already!!
That's amazing! I totally know what you mean about wanting to get the rest of the way there! For sure, you've proved to yourself that you are capabable of sticking to this and making it work for you! I have had the same thoughts that you've expressed...I could have written it! You can totally DO this! I agree with you 100% about this being an addiction, and I think that's been proven by brain research. I think people who don't think so, just aren't the ones who are addicted to it. I could easily say that alcohol isn't addictive because I don't have a problem stopping. In light of that fact, I think treating addictive foods like a recovering alcoholic treats alcohol is in order...complete abstenance! At least, that's the only thing that works for me...Of course that comes with it's own struggles, but I do think it's the only way.
I'll stop rambling now, sorry!
I wanted to make a suggestion about your foot pain. I've experienced the same kind of heel pain in the past, and found out that it was Plantar Fascitis. Here is a link from WebMD about what it is and how to treat it.http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/plan ... c-overview
I have found the Dr. Scholls inserts to be very helpful, as well as the stretches, especially the ones you do before stepping out of bed in the morning. I'm not sure if that's what's going on with you, but maybe this could help you figure it out. Mine went away, but it took awhile, and I had to stick with low-impact cardio (elliptical) so it could heal. Hope this helps some.
I'm rooting for you! You are a strong and capabable woman! You can totally do this! Stay strong and encouraged, and you'll get there, I know it!
