Hi, I'm new. I decided to give this a shot because I feel so alone in my diet challenges. I'm already feeling like my excuses are no longer legitimate after reading your entries. No one in my social circle needs to avoid the foods that I need to so I've just dealt with the symptoms because I don't want stand out. I can see that if I'm going to lose weight and feel better, i'm going to have to step out of my comfort zone. I'll "report in" tommorrow.
