You're so lucky to have such a supportive family! My family is in a funny cycle... They tell me that I'm looking really good, I tell them what I am doing, they tell me to go see a doctor because I'm "killing myself" then the next time I come over they ask all over again how/what I'm doing!
On a side note I tried vibram five finger shoes myself and I had a hard time. Vibram and Newbalance do a shoe together though that are barefoot runners and I personally love them!
