Good luck to you. You are already encouraging others.The road ahead is not going to be easy, but it can be done. If you have not done so already, get the sugar out of the house. It is to easy to open the pantry and see something that you do not need at this time. I to am on a special diet but it is not due to weight, I know how difficult it is to not eat what everyone else in the world today calls normal. Fast food for everything, the less processed the food the better off you will be.
