Wow, Candy IW, awesome on being free of your pain meds! As your body gets the remnants out it can only improve your overall health! Excellent work! And it sounds like your kids and hubby are coming around. It can be quite a challenge on some levels - hubby is on board with me but the kids can resist at times and I can imagine with your kids being that much older it would be harder. But if you persist and just don't keep junk in the house, and don't get too pushy either (that fun parental tightrope) I bet they will come around. Do you think you could challenge them to try it for a few weeks and then if they don't feel better and stronger etc they could go back to the less healthy stuff? Just thinking out loud... depends a lot on what they are like personality wise. Good luck getting them all on board!
