Thanks for the words of encouragement. I definitely agree about needing a lifestyle change. I really do want to become a vegetarian, or at least a "flexetarian." I think I'd do best to start cutting out the most unhealthy animal products first, and gradually adjusting my diet. Going cold turkey doesn't usually give me good results. I really feel like I'm off to a great start. I plan on becoming a regular around here. I just hope I can keep my word.
Thanks again guys.
