I'm lucky in this area. My dd is a vegetarian and very good at walking away from most of the bad choices. It helps a lot!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I too started out with others having less than healthy food in the house. Then my Mother-in-law was diagnosed with diabetes so the whole house went sugar free since she watches our son after school and we decided as a family that we did not want the sugary foods in the house to temp her while she was here. Now the policy is that you can have any sugary sweet you want but you have to walk to the place you are going to buy it and you cannot bring any of it back to the house and i have seen a marked change in food choices since then.
Be patient they may eventually come around and if they do not then at least you are an example of healthy eating to them emoticon

I have others who also live here and therefore can not get rid of all the bad choices they are making, but I have stocked up my own foods (lots of fruits and vegetables), I do have a small container of ice cream, but I have to walk 5 miles at 4.0MPH pace and track it in my fitness to get 64g (1/2 cup) ice cream (no more than twice a month)
