If something is holding us back, today is the day to begin to push back. Today is always the best day to end the fears and begin being the best you.

At the end of every road there is something worth seeing.

Eating too often even if it is healthy. Too much.

Wanting to munch on something. Something crunchy or chewy.

I understand that, Earnie. There are people who have a real issue with not having meat at every meal.

I wanted to lose weight and had tried just cutting back and that didn't work. Ethical reasons did not enter into it. The cutting out of meat and dairy did the trick. I don't miss meat or really dairy. The non soy dairy substitutes are sufficient when I have a recipe that really needs it. I don't do soy because of thyroid, but I do miss the occasional fish. It is just hard for me to wrap my head around preparing a meal for company that is totally vegan or having meat for them and something else for me. That seem awkward to me.

Why did you decide to become a vegan, Earnie?

One struggle. Not by any mean my largest, still one that continues to rear its head. I use to be a "foodie". I loved cooking. I loved eating. My home was open to friends anytime to come and eat or to cook. My bedside reading was most often a cookbook. I belonged to a group of people from all over the U. S. and abroad who shared my interests and we talked on line about food, eating, cooking, recipes, etc. We even met in various places around the country for long weekends to cook and eat and enjoy each other's company.

Now that my diet has changed and my food limited, I do not feel free to entertain as much unless I offer meat. And if I offer meat, I would also eat it. I haven't gotten to the point of being comfortable preparing vegan meals for company. I think I will get there at some point, but I miss entertaining for now.

food- definetly. I miss my workouts when I can't get them in. But I love food. A bite here, a cheat there, too much. I would love to learn to eat in the real world and still lose and maintain. I hate cooking two meals for the family so I don't anymore but sometimes I casue myself to stall because I over do it or I shouldn't have it right now.

Oh, for me it is definitely food! I actually like exercise (though I wish I didn't have the stupid back injury that limits what I can do), but I LOVE TO EAT. I like big portions of rich food, and I am an emotional eater. I reach for food to solve a wide range of problems -- sadness, anxiety, fatigue, pain, anger, boredom, etc -- and also to celebrate. I love cooking and experimenting with food, and I like the feeling of being full.

Some people struggle with food, others, like me with exercise. So what's your biggest struggle?

I'll start. Mine is definitely exercise. I can find a reason not to exercise anytime, any place. And I sit at the computer way too much.
