family members and others who don't "see the light" about a healthy diet.

I take offense to that sentiment and the tone of the response that
suggests that I get over it. I do not preach to the unconverted in my
daily life and am a person who quietly goes about my business without
calling attention to it. However, I needed a shoulder to cry on, if you
will, and I turned to the list members for some support, as have many
others before me. I checked the list FAQs and the introduction says,
"Discussion here is limited to foods, cooking, eating, eating out,
dealing with family and friends, and general support related to very low
fat vegetarianism." So don't be so quick to deny those of us group
support who ask for it.
I'm posting this to the list instead of responding directly because I
would hate for anyone else to be scared off when they need support,
thinking this is a recipes only kind of list.
