Haha, thank you Kevin. That really helped. Because of the good 
feedback I have gotten back and the wonderful introductions, I now 
believe I can do it and I will do it. I have three girls, the 
youngest is 7 and the oldest is 12, so it will be hard but they are 
really really good and they restrict me a lot when I tell them I am 
dieting again. I WILL do this diet and I WILL loose the 20 lbs I so 
desire. You have motivated me as well as pirateman. Thanks, Thanks, 
Thanks. I will keep everyone posted of my results. This is day two 
for me.
