J-Wim, you're awesome. You can put up a few inspiring quotes of your own, girl.

I added a whole page to my website based on reading your blog here, and there's a link to your blog. I just started using the freebie fitday program today, and I'm getting the hang of it. :)

It is the USDAs site learning to use the food guide pyramid they recommend. I had to use it for a while for a Nutrition class I took last fall - looking at your web page jogged my memory.
