Thank you all so much! You've made me realize I have come a long way. I guess now that I'm "here" so to speak, I don't really think about how hard it was. Maybe because sometimes it still is hard.
Jen, I'm glad you're having a great summer, too! It's been super hot here lately. I'm glad my MIL has a pool.
xxkaleidoscopic, Thank you! I see you are doing really well, too! WTG!
HMM3, hope you have a nice summer when it gets there!
lin43, so true! I thought I would be miserable not being able to eat anything I want when I want, but I'm really happy with the way things have turned out.
