well, to go to the "city" is a 1 1/2 hour drive. I just go to a town of 18000 to do most my shopping. They had a health food store there, and I'd finally decided to get serious about this...so was planning on checking it out next week. Found out they closed in July. There's one a half hour away a different direction, but they mostly carry vitamins and diet stuff - a glorified GNC. I'd have to go to the St. Louis area to find something at this point. I have to say the IGA in Effingham has quite a bit to offer in grains though. I've been surprised at what I find there. But to get the different oils (peanut oils and some others I've seen in recipes) or I've read a lot about almond butter, things like that I'm out of luck. Oh, and I was wanting to get away from equal sweetener, but don't have any "healthy" alternatives to that either. That's why I ought to see about ordering on line. I think if I just keep trying, and modifying like you say, it will work out...just take some time to figure it all out. I'll mostly have a hard time giving up "convenience" on some things.
It's never to late to be the person you were meant to be.
Even if you can't physically see the results in front of you, every single
effort is changing your body from the inside. Never get discouraged.
Weight loss happens the moment you don't give up.
