Hi, Dawn. Yes, the site is a bit daunting. I'd suggest starting slowly. Spend time reading and begin with a goal which you know you can reach. Being successful at one thing is a good way to jump start yourself into another.
I had to go gluten free and did it cold turkey. It was months and months before I did anything else. You've made the first step. Come join with one of the most awesome teams on the whole site.
We keep our faith in the mix, and I think that helps. Remember too, no question is a dumb question. Good luck and God bless.
