Hi Zach. I hear the anxiety and the bone-deep hunger that you feel in your article. I know that to lose 77 lb is massive but still only the start. Eating properly is such hard work. Food is comfort for a lot of the population. I know that I am one of those that is an emotional eater. I have very slowly lost 15 lbs over the last year or so. I still need to lose about 15 more lbs and that is still a big deal for me. I love to feed people good food when they come over as a show of love and friendship. It seems to be ingrained in me as a way I was brought up. Continue your brave fight!
