"My husband (Jay) and I are doing very well.  Jay joined me on this adventure so that it would be easier for me to cook for 2 (although I'm also sure he wanted to diet and didn't know how to go about it).  Well imagine his joy as he watched 35 lbs. fall off him in the first 5 weeks!!  He is feeling wonderful, looking great and has energy to burn.  I believe part of his problem was that he didn't eat enough to begin with.  Now he is eating what I prepare for him and is full and satisfied.  I am very happy for him.  
I had different problems when I started.  I was a major carb addict and had yoyo dieted all my life as a result of that. I am fighting chronic Lyme Disease and just recently got off a 2 1/2 year regiment of antibiotics.  Although I took care to balance my intestinal integrity as best as I could I would imagine that it will take me a little bit longer to be in better health. I am happy to report that I no longer crave sugar, ice cream or pasta and bread products.  That is not to say that I am totally turned off to them yet but I am very comfortable around them.  The one time we went to a restaurant I just asked the server not to put bread on the table (just in case!).  
We both had problems with eggs, dairy and wheat (I already know that I have problems with wheat so I did not test for it).  We are testing today for oats and are hoping for good results.  
So, I just wanted to thank you for getting me off to a good start! That is so important when you are just getting going.  I knew I had someone to talk to if I needed it.  I think because of that, I didn't need it!  
It's funny but although I started this plan mainly for my own benefit, one of my main driving forces at this time is to stay with all this slicin' and dicin' for my husband's sake!  The happiness he is experiencing is all I need to keep it up as our new eating lifestyle!  I am sure we will have a slice of pizza before we die but it will be when I chose and not because I'm crazed to have it.  What a feeling!! You and your wellness program have brought much happiness to our home - to date I have lost 30 lbs. and my hubby has lost 88 lbs."
