Thanks guys for the encouragement! I agree, detour, that it is all up to me. I believe that God didn't design for us to be sick. If we follow the way that He designed us to live (and eat) I don't believe we would be so unhealthy.
It's GREAT to be able to get on and read others stories and struggles and joys. It is so discouraging when you are the only one in your life trying to change you whole lifestyle. I guess it can be done though, cause I'm sure many of you have done it.
