I really appreciate your blog. It gives me hope. I am up to 215 pounds now and have struggled with my weight all of my life. I am a special education teacher and my job is really stressful at times. I find myself coming home after a tough day at school and eating anything sweet I can find. I have heard of the sugar busters diet before. I think it might be time for me to try it. Good luck with your journey and thanks again.
