    Thanks for the comment on my blog! It's always weird to hear people tell me I'm inspiring -- I never know how to respond to things like that because I only see myself as "Me" and nothing more or less.

    What size are you wearing nowadays? I'm getting ready to go through my clothes and would love to give myself to people who deserve it -- everything is well taken care of and hopefully "cool" looking. I'd love to help you look cute and save you some money! :)

    Send me a SparkMail if you're interested, and keep your chin up. You can do this. You have all of us here to help you.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Polaner is fruit preserves and pierogies are potato and cheese dumplings. So yummy.

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog :D
    Yeahh...Vegan is going to be a little tough for me because I'm a TOTAL cheesehead. For instance, our wedding menu...centered around cheese. I'm not kidding! :D
    I'm taking the leap for health reason...but, if after 3months my cholesterol is the have better believe that I'm going in search of a nice aged Gouda or some extremely sharp cheddar! Maybe a little double cream brie on a baguette.
    ARGH! Gotta stop.

    What I came here to say was...if I can do can do it. Maybe just take little steps in that direction and cut down a bit until you're eating tiny amounts and then the change won't be so dramatic for you?
    And even if you never go that route- totally okay. I'm sure you're going to do fine with your current diet, too :D
