Welcome to the team, Michelle! You will find this is a very healthy, easy way to eat. It sounds like what you're missing (besides the oils) is some exercise. Set yourself small, realistic goals, like 10 minutes at a time. Just brisk walking will do the trick! When I first started I could barely walk 15 minutes. Now I can do several miles at a time! You'll find that walking can also do a lot to relieve some of that stress. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier you!

I am a new member to your team! My name is Michelle, I am 52 and live in Dubuque, Iowa. I actually lived in Northern California and Arizona for 26 years but returned home 3 years ago to be closer to family. I am single and have two dogs and two cats who are my babies. Stress and hormonal changes have been preventing me from successful weight loss no matter what I seem to do. I had two health scares this past year that thankfully turned out OK but it has prompted me to search for a healthier clean eating lifestyle. I was trying organic/natural, but found without some guidance, I could still pack in the calories etc. I wanted to find a healthy plan that could incorporate the foods I enjoy - fish, chicken, whole grains, fruits and veggies. I read about the Mediterranean pyramid a few weeks ago and was excited to find this team! I feel I can combine all that I like about organic, natural and also incorporate healthy oils - I am told I do not get enough healthy oil in my diet. Now if I can just figure out how to reduce stress, work less (I work about 80 hours a week for a non-profit organization) and exercise more I will have a great lifestyle plan for good health. Thank you for such a great team and I look forward to learning more about the Mediterranean eating lifestyle, sharing some great recipes and forming some great friendships!
