I got some really good advice from the people in this message board. I really appreciate the insight and the willingness to help here. Thank you guys so much. I know that is a lifestyle change and not a diet and I am working hard to make it a good thing and not something I dread like I would a diet. Tracking is tedious but I'm learning short cuts, like saving foods in my favorites and keeping nutrition info on recipies I've liked and kept. I can do this. I wont make it a battle, it's not going to be easy but I'm not going to fight it. Just accept it as my new life and be happy and HEALTHY!
