Quote:Do you shop at an organic grocery store?

I had been shopping at a regular supermarket on the weekend and stopping by Whole Foods Market for extra produce and certain bulk foods during the week.  Very recently, I switched to Whole Foods Market for most of my food shopping.  (I feel so special shopping there.   :P)  I also visit the local farmer's market (mostly Amish and Mennonite farmers) on Saturday mornings for most of my vegetables.
Quote:Do you have a lot more energy?

Absolutely.  At 330 pounds or so, I was dying.  Literally.
Quote:Do you notice you are able to manage stress better?

A little bit.  I'm an emotional person, so any improvement is at the margins.
Quote:Do you feel people treat you different now based on how you look?

Yes.
Quote:How much milk do you drink in a week?

I used to drink milk like water.  At the outset of this weight loss, I resolved to limit myself to 2 8-oz. servings a day.  I have stuck to that.  I drink whole milk because it is more satisfying.  You know, the French paradox.

I love Wholefoods. When the budget allows, ie. How to put it. Its not a toxic environment.  We will get some produce, in bulk brown rice, flax seed, walnuts, and oatmeal, then miso paste, seltzer water, multigrain bread, and a small snack from the deli buffet. I feel like the most conservative person there, but the progressives act civil and friendly.

I love drinking milk now. Myself I find the 1% to be very satisying. It really helps regulate your appetite and its nutrient-rich.

One more question, if I may ask.  Can you share with us what motivated you to change your habits and lose the weight?
