I think 50lb is enough. I edited my first post to state that the tribe is for anyone with 50 lbs or more to lose. I don't want to be too exclusive, but it IS the lots to lose tribe. I think the main idea is to have a place where we feel comfortable talking big numbers. I feel uncomfortable when my skinny friends talk about needing to lose weight. It's my own poor self-esteem, but I wonder what they must think of me if they think they need to lose. But, I know I felt fat at 150.
I completely understand! everyone in my family has struggled with weight, including me. Like I said I was 238lbs only 15 months ago. My sis I really worry about she has to be over 300 now. my bro is right around there.
my sister was anorexic at one point and weighed maybe 100lbs. we got her help and she filled out a little, then when my mom passed away (as teens) she lost control and ate to fill the void or something. She has gained about 150+ lbs in 8 years, the biggest concern is she keeps gaining. Shes also bi-polar and very sensitive. She has tried to commit suicide over her weight quite a few times and even more times for other reasons.
I am no stranger to the 200+ lbs and I hope everyone feels comfortable even though I am currently under that. I have no judgments!
BTW so everyone knows I am a total food addict. It is my drug of choice.
