It's so funny you write this because as I was walking through TJs today I thought the same thing.

I was thinking about all of the IBS, diabetes, and heart disease in my family and how last year at this time I was dealing with pre-diabetes, PCOS, and IBS all at the age of 26.
It's all gone now and I'm as lean as I've ever been, endless energy and no longer need to carry a snack with me for fear of a hypoglycemic fall out. I LOVE listening to my body now. Rest, play, dance, run, eat some fat, protein....whatever. I am so very grateful for PB, Mark, Robb and all of the people in this community. Truly amazing what a year can bring.
