Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blog and for your comments. I've thought all along that finding a doctor that was willing to really listen to me would be the key but wasn't able to find one in the little town we lived in before moving. I think you're right about changing slowly, for one thing I've got a lot of food in the cupboard that I previously thought was healthy, things like yogurt and whole grain bread, not junk food. I just can't see throwing all of it away. I told my husband we're going to slowly eat it up and not replace it, that seemed reasonable to me. Today is a new day of change (again). I've had a lot of "day 1's" but hopefully this will be the start of a more success.
