Tiza, Fitting into new jeans is soooo exciting!
Brandy, Congrats!! That is awesome! And omg, I did that once. I was wearing a pair of tight jeans to a party at a friend's house and it totally ripped down the back, right in the middle seam!! SOOOOO embarrassing, even more so because I only noticed it when I went home and I don't know who saw. NO MORE CHEAP JEANS for me! Or maybe no more too-tight jeans, lol.
Sara Arell, that jump rope sounds so cool, I want to try one! Jumping rope is such good exercise (has anyone tried that since they were a kid? It gets you tired fast!) but it would be nice to be able to do it indoors or wherever.
Ro, that sounds painful!
Sara, I totally get where you are coming from. I have done all sorts of things on my quest to be ever-healthier, including (mostly) vegetarian, Raw foods (about as extreme vegan as it gets), low carb, Schwarzbein, South Beach, etc. You name it. I have always had a lot of respect for vegetarians and vegans and conscious eaters who try to eat locally, organic, etc. I think it's very noble. Learning about the dangers of soy has really scared me away from tofu (which I LOVE) and soy products. What has only recently come to my attention these last few yeas is how damaging wheat, corn and grains are. Realizing we are all part of the cycle of life has made me realize it's okay to eat animals (I hate to kill any living thing) but to be selective about where you get them (grass-fed, organic, etc.) The methods these meat-plants are using is an absolute nightmare and makes me sick. I realize this discussion is neither here nor there. I'm just making conversation I guess. I just care. I hope you find a diet that works for you!
