These past days have been a struggle as far as the diet is concerned, but I'm happy to report that I'm still here and still participating. This in itself is a good feeling. I'm not giving up! I recognize how important changing my dietary lifestyle is and that even if I have to stand alone, I must stick with it! Even if I only lose 1 or 2 two pounds a week that is a loss (a healthy one at that) I should be proud of it. I'm deciding today to stick with it for good! I hope you are too!
