How slowly it's going. It was a lot faster at first, and I suppose that spoiled me into thinking it would be that way the whole route. Not so. My body's decided there's a famine afoot and is thwarting me now. It was effortless in the beginning (other than the fact I'm a carb addict and just simply WANTED all those things I love!). Now, I have to think about it more.
The "external" thing that's most stressful to me is seeing others struggle with methods which don't work - haven't worked - aren't GOING to work... and I'm unable to adequately articulate those ideas to them. The ones who distress me the most are, naturally, my family, a couple of whom have some pretty serious health issues which COULD be managed better through nutrition. But they simply can't let go of the old and comfortable paradigms and dogma that's led us where we are today. Even some of the "respected" medical associations still rely on old and refuted research. So, when these family members "research" the ADA, or the AMA websites, they come away with those same ideas and faulty concepts. It hurts me to think I may lose them and have to look back and wonder what else I could have done to ease them and keep them around a bit longer.

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
