  1. Love these links! The pizza one speaks to me, I can recall ordering thin crust pizza with veggies and "light cheese" and staring longingly at my friends' pizzas as they bit into delightfully fluffy crust topped with sausages and fresh mozz. The torture! I'm so glad I don't put myself through that today. The way I used to order pizza is not even a way to eat pizza. I also can totally relate to the scale thing. When I moved out of my college dorm, while at my lowest weight, I did not bring my scale home with me. I just left it in there. Though I had a long way to go once I moved back home, I still am so glad I left that scale behind.
