    Erin M got a reaction from Laurell in The psychological effects of weight loss   
    While I am not in "maintenance" at this point, I have spent most of my adult life either trying to lose weight or trying to sabotage myself to keep my "security weight". Funny thing is that I am very confident in every other aspect of my life.
    I finally feel that with my paleo lifestyle that I can change this yoyo pattern. I am happily married and have a wonderful supportive family and extended family. This is only my issue, they all love me no matter what.
    I am a survivor of sexual abuse as a child and have always felt that since highschool I packed the weight on to protect myself. I have moved beyond the abuse issues through much therapy and finding a man who loves and supports me no matter what.
    I really like the idea of starting to visualize myself how I would like to be now in hopes that I will be able to better adapt to my new body. I believe that with my slow and steady weight loss that will also help me adjust more easily.
    I honesly believe that if you do not deal with the issues that caused the weight to come on then it will not stay off, this is why I delt with those issue and learned to love and respect myself beyond the physical.
    Good luck to all!

    Grapeseed oil delivers a large dose of omega6 fats that most of us don't need. Your best option is to never use grapeseed oil.
    Cooking with olive oil is not a good idea because heat can damage the oil, even before it reaches its smoke point when you know there is a problem. The best cooking fats are ghee and coconut oil.
