Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

Loved your comment on my mental health issues blog today; particularly powerful from our longest maintainer!! And I absolutely agree that professional training is required to pierce denial. The rest of us can be supportive friends: but we can no more "treat the illness" than we could perform that breast cancer surgery!!
