I printed out a lot of information for my mother to read up on. She still doesn't agree with it and believes I am becoming aneorexic, but I have assured her time after time I will eat again on the 14th and she has come to accept I am not going to quit because she is pressuring me to. She still tries, but I'm not budging till I'm done. I've only lost 7 lbs so far, 1 lb each day. I didn't expect to lose very much this time around. Healthwise, I feel much better than I had. My fibro, pcos and chronic fatigue symptoms have improved quite a bit. I also found out I probably have Celiac disease, so that would explain some of my symptoms. How has your health been Dave? Best wishes to you.
